Lab 21
Discuss the meaning of selective toxicity in terms of antimicrobial chemotherapy.
Selective toxicity refers to a chemicals ability to inhibit or kill only the microbe and not the host.
Lab 21
State why antimicrobial susceptibility testing is often essential in choosing the proper chemotherapeutic agent to use in treating an infection.
Because there is no way to predict what drugs will be successful in a given case, espcially with emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacterium.
Lab 21
Interpret the results of a Bauer-Kirby antimicrobial susceptibility test when given a Mueller-Hinton agar plate, a metric ruler, and a standardized zone-size interpretation table.

Lab 22
Define the following: protozoan, trophozoite, cyst.
a) unicellular, eukaryotic microbes from Kingdom Protista. b) vegetative form of protozoans. c) protective form of some protozoans.
Lab 22
Describe the following in terms of the malarial life cycle: sporozoite, schizont, asexual cycle, sexual cycle.
Infective form of Plasmodium in mosquito. The human cells in which the organism is reproducing through schizogony. The cycle malaria completes in human liver and red blood cells. The cycle that occurs in mosquitos.

Define the following: a) antibiotic, b) antimicrobial chemotherapeutic chemical, c) narrow spectrum antibiotic, d) broad spectrum antibiotic.
a) substances produced as metabolic products of one microorganism against another.
b) synthesized chemicals which can be used therapeutically on microbes.
c) effective against just gram + or - or only a few species.
d) effective against a variety of gram+ and - microbes.
