I don't recall seeing this article posted here though perhaps I missed it:

 

FRI0516 The Largest Cohort of Children and Adolescents with Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Streptococcus Infection (Pandas): Preliminary Descriptive Analysis

F. Falcini1, A. Meini2, G. Lepri1, D. Rigante3, A. Ferrari2, E. Casalini1, M. Matucci-Cerinic1
Conclusions Our preliminary data in the largest pediatric population with PANDAS ever studied until now show male predominance and familiar recurrence rate over 40%. Clinical onset occurs at a mean age of 8.5±2.9 years with motor tics in 45% of cases. Increased anti-DNase B titer is found in over 30% of patients. Benzathine benzylpenicillin has resulted effective in 3/4 of cases with complete or partial remission of symptoms.

 

It seems to me that's quite a high success rate for Bicillin, no?
