Formatted abstract
Methyl-substituted xanthines, caffeine and theophylline, potentiate the antimicrobial action of neomycin on Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas œruginosa in vitro. The combinations are equally effective on antibiotic resistant and sensitive staphylococci. Theophylline is a better potentiator of antibiotics. The finding is not relevant to the systemic use of neomycin but may be applicable to topical use of the antibiotic.
