    00:00 Welcome to Pharmacology by Lecturio.

    00:03 I'm Dr.Parvin Shukle.

    00:05 We're going to be talking about some unique antibacterial agents in today's lecture.

    00:10 What do I mean by unique antibacterials? Well, we've already covered agents that work on the cell wall and agents that work in bacterial protein synthesis.

    00:20 What we're going to do right now, is we're going to cover agents that act on the DNA and folic acid production within cells.

    00:27 These agents start off with the group called The Sulphonamides.

    00:33 And we also add in trimethorpim to that mix.

    00:36 Now trimethorpim is often added to a sulphonamide to give syntactic activity.

    00:42 Fluoroquinolones are another class within this group.

    Just want to say that this lecturer is gold. He speaks clearly, does not refer to items not present on the slide (thus confusing the learner), and excellent at teaching. Really enjoying all your lectures Dr. Shukle.
