Show Answers:

  1. Aminopenicillins were very active against Neisseria, etc, most are not resistance b/c of b-lactamase
    only treat those with Aminopenicillins if you have alab test showing
  2. What do you need prior to using Aminopenicillins to treat Neisseria, H. influenzae, E. coli, Salmonell and Shigella (+ other aerobic Gram - bacteria)?
    Lab test showing susceptibility
  3. What bacteria require a lab test prior to treatment with Aminopenicillins?
    • Neisseria
    • H. influenzae
    • E. coli
    • Salmonella
    • Shigella
  4. Why do you need a lab test for Neisseria prior to Aminopenicillin use?
    To verify susceptibility (due to the reduced susceptibilty inferred from B-lactamases)
  5. Aminopenicillins are very active against Gram - species (T/F)?
    • False
    • Previously very active
    • Currently many gram - bacteria have B-lactamase activity
  6. Are Aerobically growing gram - bacteria susceptible to Aminopenicillins?
    Most are resistant
  7. Is b. fragilis susceptible to aminopenicillins?
    Yes, it is resistant
  8. Is Prevotella resistant to Aminopenicillins?
    Yes, usually
  9. What is the metabolism and Gram stain of Prevotella?
    • Anaerobic
    • Gram -
  10. What is the metabolism and gram stain of B. fragilis?
    • Anaerobic
    • Gram -
  11. Neisseria, H. influenzae, E. coli, Salmonella and Shigella all have what gram stain and metabolism?
    • Gram negative
    • Aerobic
  12. Why are Gram negative aerobes developing resistance to Aminopenicillins?
    B-lactamase activity
  13. What are the two expanded spectrum penicillins?
    • Ticarcillin
    • Piperacillin
  14. What category of antibiotics are Ticarcillin and Piperacillin?
    Expanded spectrum penicillins
  15. Gram negative spectrum of Expanded Spectrum penicillins includes what Genus (as emphasized in class)?
  16. Pseudomonas can be treated with what Penicillins?
    Ticarcillin and Piperacillin (Expanded spectrum penicillins)
  17. Expanded spectrum penciillin is less or more effective (pound for pound) than aminopenicillin and Pen G/V?
    Less potent pound per pound
  18. Can expanded spectrum penicillins be inactivated by B-lactimases?
  19. What is relative cost of Expanded spectrum antibiotics compared to others?
    much More costly
  20. Under what conditions are Expanded spectrum penicillins usually used?
    • Hospitals
    • Serious infections
    • With an aminoglycoside
  21. What group of penicillins are used mainly in hospitals for serious infections along with an aminoglycoside?
    Expanded Spectrum Penicillins (Ticarcillin and Piperacillin)
  22. What situation would you not use an Expanded Spectrum Penicillin?
    If the pathogen is not susceptible to older penicillins or 1st generation cephalosporins
  23. What routes of administration are available for Expanded Spectrum Penicillins (Ticardillin and Piperacillin)?
  24. B-lactamase resistant penicillins include:
    • Methicillin
    • Nafcillin
    • Oxacillin
    • Cloxacillin
    • Dicloxacillin
  25. What type of Penicillins have a bulky side chain that prevents B-lactamase inactivation?
    • B-lactamse-resistant Pencicillins:
    • Methicillin, nafcillin, oxacillin, cloxacillin and dicloxacillin
  26. Methacillin, nafcillin, oxacillin, cloxacillin and dicloxacillin are all of what group of Penicillins?
    B-lactamase-resistant Penicillins
  27. What is the spectrum for B-lactamase resistant penicillins?
    • Gram + cocci or bacilli
    • Except: Listeria, enterococcus, MRSA
  28. What group of bacteria are active against gram + cocci and bacilli except listeria, MRSA and enterococcus?
    B-lactamase resistant Penicillins
  29. Why are B-lactamase resistant Penicillins not active against gram negatives?
    They are too big and bulky to get through the Gram - outer membrane
  30. What B-lactamase resistant penicillin is no longer used?
  31. What type of Penicillin is to bulky to get through the gram - outer membrane?
    B-lactamase resistant Pencillins
  32. What is the main cause of bacterial resistance to B-lactam antibiotics?
    B-lactamase production
  33. What drug combinations are used to combat B-lactamase producing bacteria?
    Penicillin/B-lactamase inhibitor combinations
