Abstract

The efficacy of the tobramycin-cotrimoxazole-cephalothin combination (TCC) for febrile episodes in acute leukemic patients in neutropenic phase was investigated. The results in 48 episodes were compared retrospectively with those obtained in 46 febrile episodes in the same type of patients treated with various combinations of antibiotics (VAC regimens). Positive responses were obtained in 79.2% of the episodes treated with TCC compared with 43.5% obtained in the episodes treated with VAC (P
