A series of new 3-aminosteroid derivatives was evaluated for their in vitro antimicrobial properties against human pathogens such as Gram positive bacteria. They are active against multi-resistant cocci, especially Methicillin- Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) at average concentrations of 2.5-5.0 μg/mL and are particularly suitable for topical antibacterial use.
