    110 patients with uncomplicated gonococcal urethritis were treated with 2 g spectinomycin (Trobicin) intramuscularly. Seventy-five patients were available for follow-up and there was only one treatment failure, giving a cure rate of 98-6%. Of the 99 gonococcal isolates, 59 were sensitive to 5 microng/ml of spectinomycin or less and 40 were sensitive to 10 microng/ml. In a small sample of patients 2 g spectinomycin intramuscularly produced a serum concentration averaging 100 microng/ml after one hour.
