About this book

Introduction

The literature on co-trimoxazole (TMP jSMX) is voluminous, but in the main it consists of research reports. The same can be said of various symposia that have appeared. This volume attempts to present the current status of this antibacterial combination in a series of topical reviews, each of which represents a comprehensive summary of a segment of the field. The editor acknowledges with appreciation the help provided by JACKIE, JENKS, LEE KUYPER, and particularly, RUTH Ross in the preparation of the Subject Index, and thanks Burroughs Wellcome Co. for providing access to library and word processing facilities.
