9780139469305: Understanding Antibacterial Action and Resistance (Ellis Horwood series in pharmaceutical technology)

This book reflects the profound impact of antibacterial agents on society. It considers the properties of the agents and the way in which they work. It discusses the structure of bacteria and spores and indicates targets which are susceptible to antibacterial agents. More detailed accounts of inhibitors, their modes of action, and how they reach their targets, are presented with emphasis placed on those agents of applied value in chemotherapy, preservation and disinfection. The authors answer some of the challenges posed by bacterial resistance, thereby helping microbiologists and other scientists and clinicians to circumvent the problems of resistance. They describe its genetic and biochemical basis and discuss the evolution and spread of resistance genes in bacterial populations.
