Antimicrobial drugs can be defined as a group of compounds that target different components of microorganisms, rendering them unable to continue their basic functions and/or promoting their death. Since the discovery of penicillin in the 20th century, antimicrobial agents have revolutionized the practice of medicine, making infectious diseases a secondary concern for the first time in human history, at least in the Western world.
Because of the capabilities of microorganisms to develop resistance to existing agents, new molecules have had to be developed and introduced into practice, making it a clinician’s responsibility to stay up-to-date on new therapeutic options.
In this course, the student will be introduced to the main families of antimicrobial agents against bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi.
For optimal comprehension, the student is required to have previous understanding of molecular and cell biology, histology, physiology, and microbiology.
Es excelente. Explica todo muy bien y te muestra lo necesario
The lecture was apt, the lecturer demonstrated a great understanding of the topic discussed
He explain so easy and make it fun to learn ! For me it’s better to watch videoes than read, and I like that I could watch the basics for the midterms before I start read !;)
I had a great time learning! It was short and very concise lecture series but I haven't able to keep going, I can't afford to pay the premium. Makes me sad because it helped me a lot. :(
