The antimicrobial effect of cationic surface-active substances, such as cetylpyridinyi chloride, alkylmethylbenzylammonium chloride ("roccal" and "catamine AB") and chlorhexidine was studied in vitro.

In non-bactericidal concentrations they significantly increased the efficacy of antibiotcs with different modes of action, i.e. penicillins, tetracyclines, amino-glycosides, macrolides. The effect of the cationic surface-active substances increasing the antibiotic activity against staphylococci did not depend on the resistance type, i...
