A study of the in vitro activities of 10 antibiotics against 70 strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae revealed a weakly reduced activity of penicillin and a reduced activity of ampicillin, tetracycline HCl, minocycline, spectinomycin and aztreonam. On the contrary, thiamphenicol and rifampicin were active as some new cephalosporins. The in vitro activity of rifampicin was confirmed in vivo using the drug to treat 40 cases of uncomplicated gonococcal urethritis.
