In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- Overuse of antibiotics has been shown to drive the evolution of mutant strains of bacteria immune to a broad spectrum of drugs, including penicillins, cephalosporins, and quinolones.
- The aminopenicillins were the first penicillins discovered to be active against gram-negative rods such as E. coli and H. influenzae.
- Enterococci are inherently resistant to cephalosporins, semi-synthetic penicillins, and clindamycin.
- All the usual range of antibiotics, penicillins and cephalosporins are pretty much useless against these things.
- Most antibiotics such as penicillins, cyclosporines, and aminoglycosides can be used safely during pregnancy, but tetracyclines should be avoided.
- It is well established that far less expensive antibiotics, including the penicillins and tetracyclines, are highly effective against Anthrax.
- Antibiotic categories to consider include penicillins, cephalosporins, and macrolides.
- Many were originally sensitive to antibiotics such as penicillins, but overuse of these drugs has resulted in many multi-resistant bacteria.
- The lactams are a family of antimicrobial agents consisting of four major groups: penicillins, cephalosporins, monobactams, and carbapenems.
- In general, cephalosporins and penicillins are not very effective in treating acne.
- For the patient who is allergic to penicillins, the use of trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole is indicated.
- Within these two therapeutic drug classes, penicillins were identified 22 times, cephalosporins 21 times, and opioids 20 times.
- Unlike Streptococcus pneumoniae, group A beta-hemolytic streptococci have not developed resistance to penicillins.
- The antibiotics used were mainly cephalosporins, penicillins, fluoroquinolones, aminoglycosides, tetracyclines and antituberculosis drugs.
- Major classes of antibiotics include tetracyclines, aminoglycosides, penicillins, cephalosporins, fluoroquinolones, streptogramins, sulfonamides, and erythromycins.
- Exanthematous eruptions most commonly occur in association with the administration of penicillins or cephalosporins.
- Studies from the late 1960s and the 1970s revealed that streptococcal eradication was equal with intramuscularly and orally administered penicillins.
- Oral antibiotics are usually used in the treatment and include first-generation cephalosporins, penicillinase-resistant penicillins, macrolides, and fluoroquinolones.
- While the incidence of true cross-reactivity between penicillins and cephalosporins is low, the possible reactions include anaphylaxis, which can be fatal.
- The surprising finding was that people who had reacted to sulphonamides were more likely to react to penicillins than to sulphonamide non-antibiotics.
