  12. What is the MOA of PCNs?
    They inhibit the cell wall by binding to PCN binding proteins and inhibiting enzymes that create the cross-linkages
  13. What are ADRs to PCNS?
    • Hypersensitivity reactions (anaphylaxis, hemolytic anemia, serum sickness)
    • Interstitial nephritis
    • CNS seizures
  14. Describe the absorption of PCNs
    When do they reach peak concentrations?
    • Most are destroyed by gastric acid
    • They are absorbed in the duodenum and reach peak concentrations in 1-2 hours
  15. Describe how PCNs are eliminated
    • 70% are excreted by the kidneys
    • T1/2 approx 1 hour
  16. How does PCN resistance come about?
    • inactivation by various beta-lactamases
    • development of new PCN binding proteins that have decreased affinity for PCNs
  17. List the GM+ organisms covered by PCNs
    • Strep spp
    • Corynebacterium diptheriae
    • Listeria monocytogenes
  18. Lis the GM- organisms covered by PCNs

    All stages of syphilis and strep infectinos
  21. Name the PCNase resistant PCNs
    Oxacillin, nafcillin, dicloxacillin
  22. What organisms do PCNase resistant PCNs cover?
    What isn't covered?
    • Strep, staph, peptostreptococcus (better staph coverage than nl PCNS)
    • No GM-!!
  23. When do you dose adjust for the PCNase PCNs?
    severe hepatic impairment

    • GM-
    • Usual anaerobes PLUS BACTEROIDES
  31. Describe piperacillin's activity with staph
