Antimicrobial drugs l.jpg
Antimicrobial Drugs

  • Chemotherapy The use of drugs to treat a disease

  • Antimicrobial drugs Interfere with the growth of microbes within a host

  • Antibiotic Substance produced by a microbe that, in small amounts, inhibits another microbe

  • Selective toxicity A drug that kills harmful microbes without damaging the host


Slide2 l.jpg

  • 1928 – Fleming discovered penicillin, produced by Penicillium.

  • 1940 – Howard Florey and Ernst Chain performed first clinical trials of penicillin.

  • All three were awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1945

The action of antimicrobial drugs l.jpg
The Action of Antimicrobial Drugs

  • Disrupt Cell Wall synthesis or through damage

  • Disrupt Proteins synthesis

  • Disrupt Nucleic Acid synthesis or function

  • Disrupts essential metabolic enzymes-usually by competitive inhibition.

Other inhibitors of cell wall synthesis l.jpg
Other Inhibitors of Cell Wall Synthesis Penicillin

  • Cephlosporins-used Penicillin structure to synthesize antibiotics more effective on Gram Negative bacteria

  • Polypeptide antibiotics

    • Bacitracin

      • Topical application

      • Against gram-positives

    • Vancomycin

      • Glycopeptide

      • Important "last line" against antibiotic resistant S. aureus


Other inhibitors of cell wall synthesis11 l.jpg
Other Inhibitors of Cell Wall Synthesis Penicillin

  • Antimycobacterium antibiotics (TB, Leprosy)

    • Isoniazid (INH)

      • Inhibits mycolic acid synthesis

    • Ethambutol

      • Inhibits incorporation of mycolic acid


Inhibitors of protein synthesis l.jpg
Inhibitors of Protein Synthesis Penicillin

  • Chloramphenicol

    • Broad spectrum

      • Binds 50S subunit, inhibits peptide bond formation

  • Aminoglycosides

    • Streptomycin, neomycin, gentamycin

      • Broad spectrum

        • Changes shape of 30S subunit


Inhibitors of protein synthesis13 l.jpg
Inhibitors of Protein Synthesis Penicillin

  • Tetracyclines

    • Broad spectrum

      • Interferes with tRNA attachment

  • Erythromycin

    • Gram-positives

      • Binds 50S, prevents translocation

Injury to the Plasma Membrane

  • Polymyxin B

    • Topical

    • Combined with bacitracin and neomycin in over-the-counter preparation


Inhibitors of nucleic acid synthesis l.jpg

Antifungal drugs inhibition of ergosterol synthesis l.jpg
Antifungal Drugs PenicillinInhibition of Ergosterol Synthesis

  • Ergosterol important part of fungal cell wall. Unique to fungi, therefore a good drug target

Inhibition of Cell Wall Synthesis

  • Echinocandins

    • Inhibit synthesis of -glucan


Antifungal drugs inhibition of nucleic acids l.jpg
Antifungal Drugs PenicillinInhibition of Nucleic Acids

  • Flucytocine

    • Cytosine analog interferes with RNA synthesis

Antifungal DrugsInhibition of Microtubules (Mitosis)

  • Tolnaftate

    • Used for athlete's foot; action unknown

Antiviral drugs enzyme inhibitors l.jpg
Antiviral Drugs: Enzyme Inhibitors Penicillin

  • Protease inhibitors

    • Indinavir

      • HIV

  • Inhibit attachment

    • Zanamivir

      • Influenza

Antiprotozoan Drugs

  • Chloroquine

    • Inhibits DNA synthesis

      • Malaria


Antibiotic resistance l.jpg
Antibiotic Resistance Penicillin

  • A variety of mutations can lead to antibiotic resistance.

  • Mechanisms of antibiotic resistance

    1. Enzymatic destruction of drug

    2. Prevention of penetration of drug

    3. Alteration of drug's target site

    4. Rapid ejection of the drug

  • Resistance genes are often on plasmids or transposons that can be transferred between bacteria.


Antibiotic resistance23 l.jpg
Antibiotic Resistance Penicillin

  • Misuse of antibiotics selects for resistance mutants. Misuse includes:

    • Using outdated, weakened antibiotics

    • Using antibiotics for the common cold and other inappropriate conditions

    • Use of antibiotics in animal feed

    • Failure to complete the prescribed regimen

    • Using someone else's leftover prescription

Effects of combinations of drugs l.jpg
Effects of Combinations of Drugs Penicillin

  • Synergism occurs when the effect of two drugs together is greater than the effect of either alone.

  • Antagonism occurs when the effect of two drugs together is less than the effect of either alone.

The future of chemotherapeutic agents l.jpg
The Future of Chemotherapeutic Agents Penicillin
