Single oral dose of 1-5g. talampicillin in the treatment of gonorrhoea.
  1. R R Willcox


    81 patients have been treated with single oral doses of 1-5 g. (6 tablets) of talampicillin without probenecid. The failure rate amongst those followed was only 4-2 per cent. No side-effects were reported. These results were superior to those obtained with 2-0g. or equivalent of ampicillin, amoxycillin, or pivampicillin with probenecid. Talampicillin is thus the most potent ampicillin-like antibiotic so far available for the treatment of gonorrhoea and is capable of curing the disease with a smaller single dose without probenecid than is necessary for other preparations.
