Activity against Staphylococci, Streptococci and Pseudomonas is significant. These three antibiotics have good aural activity while there is negligible systemic absorption. Cross resistance between the three is unlikely; however, cross resistance can occur between framycetin and neomycin products.Microbiology The antibacterial spectrum of framycetin includes Staphylococcus sp., Escherichia coli , Klebsiella sp., Haemophilus sp., Proteus sp., Salmonella sp., Shigella sp. and mycobacteria. The antibacterial spectrum of polymyxin includes E. coli , Klebsiella, Haemophilus, Salmonella, Shigella, Pseudomonas, fungi and protozoa. The antibacterial spectrum of bacitracin includes Staphylococcus sp., Streptococcus sp., Clostridium sp., Corynebacterium sp. and Treponema sp.|
