    • Penicillinase-Resistant Penicillins
    • Aminopenicillins
    • Extended-Spectrum Penicillins
  5. Penicillin
    Natural Penicillin
    Interferes with the synthesis of bacterial cell wall causing rapid destruction (bactericidal reaction). This is done by the beta-lactam ring on the drug attaching to the bacteria. However, bacteria have become bacterial resistant to natural penicillin
  6. Penicillin
    Penicillinase-Resistant Penicillin
    Developed to stop penicillinase the enzyme that inactivated penicillin
  7. Penicillin
    Aminopenicillin
    Modified to be slowly excreted by the kidneys thus giving it a wider spectrum of antibacterial activity
