Abstract : The silver salt of metachloridine has been shown to have marked effectiveness against viruses, bacteria, fungi and protozoa. It is active against the organisms over a considerable concentration range in vitro, and has a noteworthy, high chemotherapeutic index when administered to animals by topical, oral or parenteral route. In addition to its effectiveness, silver metachloridine has been shown to be well tolerated at levels far above those required for therapeutic uses in animals.
