The antimicrobial activities of teicoplanin and ampicillin, alone and in combination with gentamicin, were compared in experimental Streptococcus faecalis endocarditis. Bacterial titers in vegetations of rabbits treated with teicoplanin were significantly lower than those of untreated controls (P less than 0.01) and were equivalent to titers in ampicillin-treated animals. Gentamicin increased the activities of both drugs to a comparable degree.
