The MICs of three new antimicrobial agents of different classes, U-70138F, roxithromycin (RU 965), and ofloxacin (ORF 18489), versus Chlamydia trachomatis in McCoy cell cultures were 0.25, 0.8, and 1.0 microgram/ml, respectively. For each test drug, the MIC and MBC were identical or were within 1 dilution of one another. These drugs possessed sufficient activity in cell culture to suggest possible clinical effectiveness.
