Abstract To the Editor.—Our recent paper entitled "Antimicrobials in the Treatment of Acute Otitis Media," which was published in the March issue of the Journal (125:397-402, 1973), met with some criticisms by Gunnar B. Stickler, MD, of the Mayo Clinic in an invited editorial comment which followed titled "How Many More Treatment Trials in Otitis Media?" Dr. Stickler makes several points regarding our findings and conclusions. He References 1.
