Antibiotics

Antibiotics are grouped into "families" of similar types. Bacteria also are put together in groups of similar types, such as streptococcus or E. coli. Certain types of bacteria are especially susceptible to particular classes of antibiotics. Treatment can be targeted more precisely if your doctor knows what type of bacteria you are infected with. Antibiotics are usually reserved for bacterial infections because these types of drugs have no effect on illnesses caused by viruses. But sometimes it is difficult to tell which type of germ is at work. For example, pneumonia can be caused by a bacterium, a virus, a fungus, or a parasite. The overuse of antibiotics has resulted in several types of bacteria developing resistance to one or more varieties of antibiotics. This makes these bacteria much more difficult to treat.

  • Antivirals
  • Antifungals
  • Anti-parasitic
