Abstract: In this randomized study, a single 800-mg oral dose of cefixime cured 96 of 97 men with uncomplicated gonococcal urethritis, compared with 44 cures of 46 men who received standard therapy with amoxicillin (3 g) plus probenecid (1 g). Both regimens were ineffective against coexistent infection with Chlamydia trachomatis and Ureaplasma urealyticum. Cefixime was well tolerated, and all side effects were mild and self-limited.
