    00:00 Welcome to Pharmacology by Lecturio.

    00:04 My name is Dr.Parvin Shukle.

    00:06 Let's talk about some antibacterial agents that we use commonly in practice.

    00:11 Now when we talk about antibacterial agents, we have a very large spectrum of medications.

    00:16 Let's start off with cell wall synthesis inhibitors.

    00:20 These include the penicillins, the cephalosporins, the carbapenems and other miscellaneous drugs.

    00:27 When we take a look at these agents, there's quite a large variety within each sub group.

    00:33 With the penicillins we have penicillinase susceptible and penicillinase resistant agents.

    00:39 Within the cephalosporins we have 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation of cephalosporins.

    00:46 Carabpenems are relatively new group of drugs that have come on to the market recently.

    00:51 And then we have miscellaneous drugs.

    00:53 These can include aztreonam and vancomycin.
