Abstract

The efficacy of 3 g of amoxicillin plus 1 g of probenecid was compared with the efficacy of 3.5 g of ampicillin plus 1 g of probenecid for the treatment of uncomplicated gonorrhea. In a clinical trial no therapeutic failure was seen among 60 patients who were treated with the former regimen. The combination of ampicillin plus probenecid resulted in two therapeutic failures (3.6%) among the 55 patients given it. It was concluded that amoxicillin plus probenecid is as effective as ampicillin plus probenecid for the treatment of uncomplicated gonorrhea.
