Unexpected Reactions to Modern Therapeutics: Antibiotics discusses the side-effects of antibiotics, specifically the allergic reactions of the skin and mucous membranes to penicillin. This book contains 12 chapters that address the specific organ reaction to penicillin and the complications of the gastro-intestinal tract after ingestion of chloramphenicol. Some of the topics covered in the book are the inhibition of the bone marrow function and blood changes after receiving doses of chloramphenicol; lesions of the skin and mucous membranes after applying tetracyclines; changes in the hemopoietic system, liver function, and structure after medication of oxy-tetracycline. Other chapters deal with the analysis of antibiotic resistant bacteria and the physiological adverse effects of neomycin. An analysis of the side-effects of erythromycin is provided. The concluding chapters describe the nephrotoxic effects of bacitracin and the epidermal effects of fumagillin. The book can provide useful information to doctors, pharmacologists, students, and researchers.
