ABSTRACT

 

In this work we give evidence based upon in vitro experiments that gentamycin, when used in controlling the infections of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, rcsults in modification in serological and pyocin typing patterns, as well as in pyocin activity. From six different experiments, fifty-two mutant strains of P. aeruginosa resistant to different concentrations of gcntamycin were isolated. Of these 36.5% underwent changes in their serological typing and 47.7% in pyocin typing. Pyocin activity of all mutant strains was 2--10 times higher than in the wild type.
