  • 15 Mm Escherichia Coli Growth Area
    1,422 words
    Introduction Problem To determine the effect of ten different antibiotics on two different types of bacteria. I will test six antibiotics on Escherichia coli, and six antibiotics on Bacillus subtilis. On Escherichia coli I will test tetracycline, chloramphenicol, furadantin, nalidixic acid, triple sulfa, and kanamycin. On Bacillus subtilis I will test streptomycin, erythromycin, novobiocin, tetracycline, chloramphenicol, and penicillin. As a side observation, I would also like to see if Bacillus...
  • Major Factor Of Bacterial Resistance To Antibiotics
    2,179 words
    Resistance Is Futile: The Dilemma of Antibiotic-Resistance Has man pinned the arm behind the back of Mother Nature Have humans finally won this terrible pathogenic onslaught Apparently not the Era of Epidemics has risen once again, and it looks as if humans are being bumped off the top of the food chain. Bacteria are mutating into antibiotic-resistant monsters. One of the main reasons why this is is because of the mass antibiotic misuse that increases the chance of bacterial DNA mutation. Bacter...
  • Doctors Use Antibiotics

The antibiotics are used to treat many various types of diseases, such as tuberculosis, syphilis, and several kinds of infections. People have been using a...
  • Term Antibiotic
    594 words
    46. Antibiotics Antibiotics are chemical compounds used to kill or inhibit the growth of infectious organisms. Originally the term antibiotic referred only to organic compounds, produced by bacteria or molds, that are toxic to other microorganisms. The term is now used loosely to include synthetic and semisynthetic organic compounds. Antibiotic refers generally to antibacterials; however, because the term is loosely defined, it is preferable to specify compounds as being antimalarial's, antivira...

    Antibiotics and Penicillin Antibiotics was created to kill the growth of infectious organisms, produced by bacteria or molds that are toxic to other micro- organisms. Antibiotic refers to antibacterials all antibiotics are more toxic to an organism than they are to an animal or human.

Plant extracts were used for medicine for ce...
  • Antibiotics For Topical Use

    Antibiotics have played a major role in our society thanks to Sir Alexander Fleming's careful observations in 1928. Without it, many lives would be in danger due to infectious diseases. Antibiotics are chemical substances produced by various species of microorganisms and other living systems that are capable in small concentrations of inhibiting the growth of or killing bacteria and other microorganisms. These organisms can be bacteria, viruses, fungi, or animals called protozoa. A particular gr...
  • Resistant To Antibiotics

There is a constant push from pharmaceutical companies, parents, and massive marketing companies to try the next antibiotic remedy, but as we look towards the future and the diseases that can be created by this quick fix, we should turn to our attention to alternati...
  • Late Antibiotic Resistance
    2,489 words
    ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE AND JUDICIOUS USE OF ANTIBIOTICS Antibiotics Antibiotics are chemical substances, many of them derived from microorganisms that suppress the growth of other organisms and sometimes kill them. In clinical practice, the antibiotics are used to treat bacteriologically proven infections and also in the prophylaxis of certain diseases. They are sometimes used in the blind or empiric therapy of presumed infection. A different principle governs the selection of antibiotics for ...
  • Usefulness Of Phage Therapy
    6,432 words
    With fears of a post-antibiotic era, as old and new antibiotics alike are failing rapidly to resistant bacteria, a more dynamic solution is needed. A solution that can keep up with bacterial resistance mutation for mutation with its own tenacity for 'life. ' This solution may well have been found with bacteriophage therapy. After preliminary studies gave false hopes and false negatives the majority of the scientific world turned away as it embraced antibiotics. Institutes in Georgia and Poland c...
  • Improper Antibiotic Use Of Penicillin
    1,156 words
    Penicillin, substance named this because the fungal contaminant was identified as Penicillium no tatum. The antibacterial effect of penicillin was first discovered by Alexander Fleming in 1929. With its interesting mode of action, Penicillin prevents the cross-linking of small peptide chain in peptidoglycan, the main wall polymer of bacteria. This simple antibiotic has surely made its mark and continues to do so all around the world. Penicillin has helped, enriched and saved the lives of many; h...
  • Spread Of Antibiotic Resistance
    221 words
    Antibiotic Antibiotic Resistance Antibiotic Resistance Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria that cause infection are not killed by the antibiotics taken to stop the infection. The bacteria survive and continue to multiply causing more harm. Widespread use of antibiotics promotes the spread of antibiotic resistance. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that about 100 million courses of antibiotics are provided by office-based doctors each year. Approximately half o...
