Document Type



THE NATIONAL Gonorrhea Therapy Monitoring Study1,2 is a prospective, multiclinic effort for monitoring of the efficacy of treatment of uncomplicated gonorrhea as officially recommended by the United States Public Health Service, 3 and for evaluation of new treatment regimens. Since the initiation of the study in 1972, we have evaluated nine therapeutic regimens, including six different antibiotics, at clinical centers in 11 cities in the United States. We have also tested the antibiotic susceptibilities of > 13,000 isolates of Neisseria gonorhoeae from these centers. This paper reports the results of treatment, and the patterns of antimicrobial resistance from 1972 to 1978. Some of these data were previously reported.1,2,4
