Antimicrobial pharmacodynamics in theory and clinical by Nightingale C.H., et al. (eds.)

By Nightingale C.H., et al. (eds.)

Taking readers from the study laboratory to the bedside, this moment version compiles crucial info at the pharmacodynamics of all significant sessions of the antimicrobial armamentarium together with penicillins, cephalosposorins, cephamycins, carbapenems, monobactams, aminoglycosides, quinolones, macrolides, antifungals, antivirals, and rising brokers at the moment in improvement. Written via skilled execs within the box, this consultant makes use of an abundance of examples to depict the way to observe pharmacodynamic ideas to daily scientific perform.
