Beta lactams-penicillins: static or cidal? MOA? spectrum of action?

- G +, anaerobes --> drug of choice for clostridium
- some activity against weaker G- (M.bovis)
with aminopenicillins, how does amino group change the spectrum of the drug?
increases lipophilicity so better penetration of G- cell wall
What are some common indications for beta lactams?
- UTI, rumenotomy, metritis

Which cephalosporins have no milk WDT?
Naxcel, Excenel, Excede

what is indication for potentiated sulfonamides?
- preruminant calves with bacterial enteritis
- (rapidly degraded if given orally to adult ruminant)
Macrolides: cidal or static? lipip or water soluble?
- static (50s ribosome)
- excellent lipid solubility
What are examples of macrolides? what is their spectrum of activity?
- tylosin (tylan)
- tilmicosin (micotil)
- G+, *mycoplasma*, chlamydia, pasteurella, histophilus
- acceptable for pneumonia
what are potential hazards of macrolides?
micotil is cardiotoxic to humans/animals that are not large adult ruminants
erythromycin can cause heat stress/incr. thermogenesis
What is Tylan commonly used for in feed lots?
to limit hepatic abscesses
Tetracyclines: cidal or static? spectrum?
- static (30s ribosome)
- broad spectrum (salmonella mostly resistant though)
What are common indications for use of tetracyclines?
- foot baths or wraps for hairy heel warts
- blood born parasites (anaplasma, chlamydia)
- early pneumonia
- M.bovis (pink eye)
what are some potential problems with tetracyclines?
- irritation at injection site
- nephrotoxic if outdated
Aminoglycosides: cidal or static? spectrum? lipid or water soluble?
- cidal (irreversibly to 30s ribosome)
- mostly G -
- water soluble so will NOT cross BBB (not for meningitis)
Why is there a voluntary ban of aminoglycosides from FA? What are other potential problems associated with these?
what are two examples of aminoglycosides?
Fluoroquinolones: cidal or static? spectrum?
- cidal (inhibits DNA gyrase)
- Broad for G+/- mycoplasma and chlamydia
- poor against Strep, NO activity against anaerobes
