Binding of aminoglycosides to feces.


Gentamicin and several other basic antibiotics were examined for their ability to adsorb to dog feces. It was found that 44 to 90% of all antibiotics studied were adsorbed to feces depending on the ratio of antibiotic to fecal material. Attempts to extract these antibiotics by acid treatment after adsorption onto feces were only partially successful since large portions of the bound materials were not removed.
