Global Antibiotics Market 2014-2018 - New Market Study Published

New Pharmaceuticals market report from TechNavio: "Global Antibiotics Market 2014-2018"


Boston, MA -- (SBWire) -- 09/30/2014 --Antibacterial drugs are chemical compounds used to kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria. The term "antibiotic" is often used synonymously with antibacterial; however, the term "antibiotic" was originally coined to refer to the antibacterial compounds of microbial origin. Antibacterial acts via various mechanisms such as the inhibition of cell wall synthesis, the inhibition of nucleic acid synthesis, the disruption of the cell membrane, and the inhibition of protein synthesis. It can be bacteriostatic or bactericidal in nature. Antibiotics are medicines that are used to treat infections caused by bacteria (e.g., respiratory tract infections). Antibiotics work against microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and parasites but are not effective against viruses. Antibiotics either block vital processes in bacteria, kill the bacteria, or halt them from growing. Antibiotics that affect a wide range of bacteria are called broad spectrum antibiotics (e.g., amoxicillin and gentamicin). Antibiotics that affect only a few types of bacteria are called narrow spectrum antibiotics (e.g., penicillin).
