Penicillins General

Question Answer
β-lactams are type _________ killing kineticsType 2 - Time dependent (2 helped administer the 1st type of penicillin)
**Are β-lactams ‘cidal’ or ‘static’?Cidal (not part of Mac & Lin's stunt in the pool!)
**What is the mechanism by which Β-lactams work?Inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis by binding to PBPs (Penicillin Binding Proteins) & stopping Transpeptidase
What are the 3 ways bacteria can become resistant to β-lactams?(1) They make β-lactamase
(2) They can ↓ their permeability
(3) They can ↓ the sensitivity of their PBP
What are the 5 groups of β-lactams?Penicillins
(1 pen in a CAR engine will make a cepha-cepha sound)
β-lactams are only effective against? (Broad def, not specific bact)Effective against rapidly growing organisms that synthesize peptidoglycan


Question Answer
*Which enzyme is effected by β-lactams?Transpeptidase enzyme
*Which penicillin has a stupid long absorption when mixed w/ oil? How long exactly?Benzathine penicillin G, greater than or equal to 7 days (ben was impressive. that G could go for 7 days!)
Highest protein binding pencillins are?Cloxacillin & Nafcillin (80%) (I CLOX'ed NAf upside the head till protein came out)
**Where are penicillins mainly distributed?ECF (cant get into cell, thus narrow spect)
Penicillins have a low rate of distribution to which areas?CSF, aqueous humor & synovial fluid
---Milk to plasma equilibrium conc is?1:5
How much of the penicillins are metabolized, & why do we care?20%, which isnt much, but what is metabolized may turn to Penicilloic acid metabolite, which can act as a hapten causing allergic rxns
How are penicillins excreted? Exceptions?Kidney (glom filt & tubular secretion), except Nafcillin is excreted by bile
**How can you ↑ the half-life of penicillins?Admin w/ Probenecid, which competes w/ the penicillin for tubular secretion, so penicillin isn't secreted & keeps cycling in the body (penicillin probenecid)
Which penicillin causes convulsions & ataxia in cats & dogs?Sodium benzyl penicillin ( BEN SO caused a seizure in my dog/cat)
Acute cardiac toxicity caused by which drug?Procaine/potassium penicillin salts (kate is a pro at stopping your heart)
Anaphylaxis & CNS disorders in rodents, birds, snakes & turtles caused by?Procaine penicillin ( "propain" to all the things people tend not to like for some reason)

Natural Penicillins

Question Answer
Broad or narrow spectrum?Narrow (narrow, natrual)
What are the 2 members of the natural penicillins group?Penicillin V & Penicillin G
How can you extend the absorption time of Penicillin G?You can put it in oil (oil is Good)
**Which drugs of penicillin G do you NOT GIVE IV? EVER?Benzathine & Procaine formulations, bc these are repository (IM or intramammary) (BEN is a PRO at KILLING YOUR VEINS)
What are the 2 penicillin G drugs?Benzathine & Procaine (Ben is a PRO G)
**How do you formulate the natural pencillins to be injectable? (IM/SC or IV?)As SALTS!
(1) IM/SC as Na/K salts
(2) IV as Na salts
Which natural penicillins are given orally? Why are they able to be given orally?Penicillin V = oral. (Voice-oral). Oral bc they are ACID-STABLE (can survive stomach acid)

Other β-lactams

Question Answer
Are Carbapenems cidal or static?Cidal (β-lactams are all cidal. also getting hit by a car will kill you)

Can work against resistant infections
Rapid bactericidal activity
What are the 2 Carbapenems we care about?Imipenem, Meropenem
*What is important to note about Imipenem? (A carbapenem)Use as LAST RESORT, it creates a NEPHROTOXIC metabolite, so it is ALWAYS administered w/ Cilastatin (a renal enzyme inhibitor) (I-M-I is S-O-S)
*What is the adverse side effects of the carbapenems? (Imipenem, Meropenem)Seizures (having a seizure in the car is bad)
Why is Meropenem less harmful than Imipenem?Its more soluble, so there are less adverse effects (it's merely ~mero!)
it's better than imin!
What is the monobactam we care about?Aztreonam (can be used in penn. allergic PTx!)
**What is the unique & useful trait about the monobactam Aztreonam?It has lower immunogenicity, so it can be used in PTx allergic to penicillins (Az safe az if it werent a penicillin)
