It may be broken down in the stomach by gastric acids and is poorly and irregularly absorbed into the blood stream. During the war he had a special rôle in pioneering penicillin treatment, working with Fleming and Florey, and collaborating with Arthur Porritt in the book *Penicillin therapy and control in 21 Army Group*, which described the use of penicillin in the invasion of Europe.

    Penicillin is the drug of the twentieth century. It was the first of the antibiotics that, for decades after the Second World War, underpinned a popular belief that infectious disease had at last met its match.

Some of these reactions are visible and some occur in the body's organs or blood. Among Allied troops, gangrene now occurred in just cases per thousand, and they died about half as often as in the early years of the war, according to another surgeon with the 21st Army Group.

Meanwhile, as penicillin remained scarce, German prisoners mostly received sulfa drugs instead and suffered gangrene at a rate of 20 to 30 per thousand.
