Abstract

Rothenberg points out the threat arising from bacterial strains becoming resistant to antibiotics and sulfonamides, and those resistant to such therapy per se, both of which are becoming more prominent in mastitis, with extensive and indiscriminate use of antibiotics and sulfonamides for therapy. Thus a need is expressed for a mastitis treatment that (1) is not an antibiotic or sulfonamid; (2) has a wide antibacterial spectrum with little or no chance for development of resistance or compensation to the drug; (3) is nontoxic and (4) is restricted to use under professional supervision. This need indicates the importance of agents other than antibiotics and sulfonamides. It was thought that a brief review of the recent literature on some of these agents would prove to be interesting and valuable to the writer and reader. Agents used separately or in conjunction with antibiotics or sulfonamides are discussed.
