    A serum amoxycillin concentration of 0.11 g/l was established as being treponemicidal in a rabbit model with orchitis. Seventeen patients treated with amoxycillin 2 g by mouth three times a day plus 500 mg probenecid twice a day attained treponemicidal CSF amoxycillin concentrations. Thus amoxycillin by mouth offers an effective alternative method for treating patients with neurosyphilis.
