• Netilmicin sulfate, a new aminoglycoside antibiotic, was administered to ten patients with thermal burns who were suffering from septic complications, usually burn wound sepsis. There were seven survivors. Eighty-three percent of all clinical isolates recovered showed sensitivity to the drug. No renal or auditory side effects were noted in any of the patients.
