Jump to: navigation, search

Meticillin is the original anti-Staphylococcal penicillin, and gives its name to MRSA. It has been superseded by flucloxacillin in clinical use.

Prior to 2005, when its name was changed in accordance with the International Pharmacopoeia guidelines, it was known as methicillin. European Law requires use of the Recommended International Non-proprietary Name (rINN) for medicinal substances[1] [2] but not apparently in sensitivity testing or common speech.
