We clinically investigated a new combination drug, sulbactam·ampicillin (SBT·ABPC) at the ratio 1:2, in the urological field. SBT·ABPC was administered to 24 patients with complicated urinary tract infections at a dose of 1.5 g twice daily for 5 days. The clinical efficacy rate was 75% according to the criteria of the Japanese UTI committee. Bacteriologically, 23 of 29 organisms (79%) were eradicated. There were no subjective side effects, but slight elevation of transaminase was noted in three cases.
