A controlled study was mounted to assess the possible benefit of a single phlebo administration of 600 mg lincomycin 1 hr prior to colon surgery, in addition to the erythromycin + neomycin combination proposed by Nichols, as a means of constituting a further pharmacological barrier to the spread of anaerobic bacteria. The study currently comprises two groups of 15 patients fully comparable with regard to pathology distribution and randomly assigned to the E.N. and the E.N.L. protocol respectively. Six instances of septic complication have been observed, five in the group prepared with E.N. and 1 prepared with E.N.L. No significance can be attached to the different incidence of complications in the two arms of the study, owing to the small number of cases examined.
