  • Anthrax Research Paper

    thing to be blamed upon contracting an illness. Since the disease begins with “nonspecific symptoms,” similar to flu-like symptoms, and escalates quickly into more deadly symptoms many people would not be able to receive proper treatment as they would delay a hospital visit (Dizer, Levent, Mesut). Once medical professionals figured out the source of the illness it would be too late for many, as inhalational anthrax has a mortality rate of 80% or higher (U.S. Food and Drug Administration). Since the anthrax vaccine is not available to the general public, many would not be protected against an outbreak. According to the CDC, “Antibiotics can prevent anthrax from developing in people who have been exposed but have not developed symptoms” “ciprofloxacin and doxycycline are two of the antibiotics that could be used to prevent anthrax” (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). However, as the possibility for antibiotic resistance is in the future, these may be rendered ineffective at the time of an attack. The course of antibiotics typically takes 60 days and is generally given intravenously (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). This would allow hospitals to become over-crowded very quickly. Once the outbreak was identified it would be difficult to produce enough antibiotics for those infected and enough vaccines for those not yet infected. Even if enough vaccines could be produced, the vaccine requires 5 shots over the course of 18 months (Centers for Disease Control…

  • Kinetics And Thermodynamics Of Ciprofloxacin Lab Analysis

    Abstract In this study equilibrium isotherms, kinetics and thermodynamics of ciprofloxacin on seven sediments in a batch sorption process were examined. The effects of contact time, initial ciprofloxacin concentration, temperature and ionic strength on the sorption process were studied. The Kd parameter from Linear sorption model was determined by linear regression analysis, while the Freundlich and Dubinin–Radushkevich (D–R) sorption models were applied to describe the equilibrium isotherms by…

  • Consequences Of Dr. Stevens Act Utilitarianism

    Stevens would give Mrs. Kelsey the antibiotics to ease her mind. The specific actions that are open to the Dr. Stevens in the case would be to either give Mrs. Kelsey ciprofloxacin, or to not give Mrs. Kelsey ciprofloxacin. The likely near term consequences of giving Mrs. Kelsey the ciprofloxacin would be easing of Mrs. Kelsey’s mind, and would cause her to not buy ciprofloxacin on the internet and risk taking it without any information on it. The likely near term consequences of not giving Mrs.…

  • Pyelonephritis Case Study

    the culture report. Since, Leory is presented with moderate symptoms of pyelonephritis with uncomplicated disease, an oral antibiotic therapy is preferable at this time. Ciprofloxacin 500 mg PO, two times daily for seven days is ideal for Leory, if he is not allergic to this medication. This antibiotic can cover the most common causative pathogens associated with pyelonephritis and have good renal tissue penetration. Leory also can take Tylenol 650 mg PO every six hours as needed to manage his…

  • Callistemon Viminalis Essay

    CLSI standard table.20 In each experiment, a disc containing the solvent dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) 10% was determined as a negative control and a disc containing Vancomaycin 30 μg/disc and Ciprofloxacin 5 μg/disc standard positive control was used as an antibiotic. The tests were repeated three times and the results were presented in the…

  • Microorganisms Lab Report

    broth indicates that it is basic while yellow indicates acid productions. This is called reversion and happens because the organism is catabolizing protein. The microorganisms drug susceptibility was tested in laboratory thirteen. The zone of inhibition around the antibiotic discs was the significance of this experiment. This would classify if it was resistant, intermediate or susceptible to the antibiotic. It is susceptible to broad-spectrum drugs, such as Amoxicillin, and Ciprofloxacin. It is…

  • Gonorrhea Case Studies

    They are treated with antibiotics such as penicillin, but also ceftriaxone since the bacteria is becoming increasingly resistant to penicillin, if so it also treated with ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin. Since, gonorrhea and chlamydia go hand in hand at times, they are also treated for chlamydia but with another set antibiotics. Physician will also test the person’s sexual partner to avoid reoccurrence and spreading of the infection. (Rathus, et al, 2016,…

  • Antimicrobial Agents Against Microorganisms

    For instance penicillin is known to be effective against gram positive bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus of which during its activity forms surface protein that binds and leads to the osmotic lysis (Willey et al, 2011 page832). However, there are some emergences of bacteria resistance to penicillin causing pathogenic Staphylococcus aureus infections know as Methicillin – resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) (Chaitow, 1998) commonly found in hospitals. The results showed that…

  • Yersinia Pestis: The Cause Of The Bubonic Plague

    diagnose seems how the symptoms are of that of the regular flu. And even if you developed the buboes, there are other diseases more common to check for first that also develop the buboes, like cat-scratch fever and mononucleosis. When treating the Bubonic plague the mortality rate is less than 10%. When untreated the mortality rate is 90%. You need to be treated within 24 hours of symptoms to prevent death.

  • Snakebite Envenomation Essay

    There are many controversies on the use of antibiotic therapy. Based on the complexity of infection many authors suggested broad-spectrum rationale along with tetanus and rabies vaccination to decrease the risk of secondary infection and continued until manifestation are clearly disappeared (Kevin R. Kerrigan 1992). Antibiotics not only prevent the manifestation of wound infection but also accelerate the healing of the injury. Antibiotics like Ciprofloxacin, amoxicillin + clavulanate plus…
