Each volume is organized into sections: bacterial resistance, anaerobic infections, evaluation of investigational new drugs. Many of these sections have an initial portion of "invited" panel presentations. These are not "panels" in the usual sense, but rather individual presentations given by acknowledged experts on the subject. For example, the invited panel presentations on extrachromosomal resistance includes Anderson, Chabbert, Datta, and Mitsuhashi; the panel on anaerobic infection includes Willis, Bartlett, Dowell, Washington, and Finegold. The references at the end of these presentations are excellent.
Preclinical and clinical evaluation of new antibacterial agents comprise a large portion of the remaining presentations, and
