Results of bacteriophage treatment of suppurative bacterial infections. IV. Evaluation of the results obtained in 370 cases

Arch Immunol Ther Exp (Warsz). 1985;33(2):219-40.

Abstract

The results of phage therapy applied in 370 cases of suppurative bacterial infections were analyzed. Positive therapeutic results were obtained in 342 (92.4%) cases. The results obtained confirmed the previous findings on great effectiveness of bacteriophages in the treatment of septic infections, spontaneous or postoperative, caused by pyogenic Staphylococci, Klebsiella, Escherichia, Proteus and Pseudomonas bacteria.
