The role of cell population kinetic in the efficacy of penicillin an experimental analysis and stochastic modeling of the tumor tetanus and wound tetanus of the mouse



The role of cell population kinetic in the efficacy of penicillin an experimental analysis and stochastic modeling of the tumor tetanus and wound tetanus of the mouse



Zentralblatt fuer Bakteriologie Mikrobiologie und Hygiene Series A 266(3-4): 506-521



When investigating tetanus lethality summation curves of mice under comparable quantitative conditions following a temporarily limited administration of penicillin, the curves obtained can be calculated by the kinetics of tumour cells or wound fibroblasts. In particular, it has been shown that the optimal efficacy of penicillin, after short-time usage as compared with a long-time administration schedule, is determined by the generation time of the tetanus rods as a function of the mitotic cycle of the "pace-making" tumour cells or wound fibroblasts. Further variables of the mathematical model imply the pharmacokinetics of penicillin and the recovery process of the "hit" tetanus rods. From these results some basic experimental and clinical tetanus issues can be elucidated; thus, the mitosis theory of tetanus is being verified for the stage of incubation and of clinical manifestation, while the classical necrosis theory of the pathogenesis of tetanus infection should be valid only for the final stage.
