  1. antimicrobials
    drugs that kill or inhibit growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, protozoa, viruses, and fungi
  2. suffix 'cidal'
    kills microorganism
  3. suffix 'static'
    inhibits growth of microorganism

    (basically starving the microorganism to death)
  4. antibiotics
    antimicrobials produced by a microorganism
  5. antibacterials
    synthetic, toxic to bacteria
  6. primary goal of antimicrobial therapy
    kill microorganism without killing patient
  7. MIC
    • Minimum Inhibitory Concentration
    • lowest concentration at which growth of the bacterium is inhibited 

    (how susceptible is a bacterial strain?^)
  8. MIC low vs. high #
    • low #-strong antibiotic
    • high #-weak antibiotic

    (ex:MIC for Penicillin may be higher than MIC for Amoxicillin. the MIC changes as time goes on and the bacteria become more and more resistant to the antibiotic)
  9. iatrogenically induced bacterial resistant practices   
    • antibiotics in feed over long periods (ex: Strongid T)
    • failure to admin for appropriate period of time (never use antibiotics less than 5 days)
    • failure to consider pharmacokinetics of drug (ex: renal infections, drug have to be admin for extended periods of time)
  10. ways antimicrobials kill bacteria
    • cell wall- lyse wall&kill bacteria. effective only in growing bacteria
    • cell membrane permeability-penetrates cell wall and membrane by bringing about death inside the cell once entered (but does not destroy cell wall)
    • ribosomes-block protein synthesis by interfering with sequence of amino acids and thus protein development
    • critical enzymes- drug attach to enzymes needed in the conversion of food&growth products thus starving to death (ex:bacteriostatic)
  11. most recent method of killing bacteria
    • nucleic acids
    • these drugs damage the nucleic acid production of a bacteria, preventing it from normal division
    • these drugs usually take longer to work/kill
    • ex: antiprotozoan/antifungal products
  12. Penicillin synthetic derivatives
    • penVK
    • ampicillin
    • amoxicillin
    • hetacillin
    • cloxacillin
  13. how does Penicillin work?
    • cell wall lysis
    • effective against gram + bacteria (not beta-lactamase)
    • procaine&benzathine- vehicles
    • broad&narrow spectrum
    • belongs to group B-Lactam Drugs
  14. vehicle
    either intensify or lengthen effect of drug
  15. broad spectrum
    kills gram+ and -

    (narrow kills one or the other)
  16. B-Lactam drugs
    act by disrupting bacterial cell wall synthesis

    inclues penicillins, cephalosporins, etc.
  17. B-lactamase enzymes
    most common mechanism of bacterial resistance to B-lactams is production of B-lactamase enzymes which damages the B-lactam ring of these compounds and renders them ineffective.

    these organisms are classified as methicillin-resistant types and compromise a majority of nosocomial isolates from human&some animal hospitals
  18. nosocomial infection
    infections inside an otherwise sterile area

    (infection at hospital)
  19. increases bacteria's resistance by converting penicillin to inactive penicillic acid
    beta-lactamase (penicillinase)

    beta-lactamase-resistant/penicillinase resistant penicillins: some penicillins are more resistant to beta-lactamase-hydrolysis
  20. penicillins are usually very effective against
    gram-positive bacteria

    but gram-negative bacteria have an outer membrane around the cell wall that limits permeability (ex: methicillin, cloxacillin, dicloxacillin, oxacillin)
