Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Benzylpenicillin, commonly known as penicillin G, is the gold standard type of penicillin. 'G' in the name 'Penicillin G' refers to 'Gold Standard'. Penicillin G is typically given by a parenteral route of administration (not orally) because it is unstable in the hydrochloric acid of the stomach. Because the drug is given parenterally, higher tissue concentrations of penicillin G can be achieved than is possible with phenoxymethylpenicillin. These higher concentrations translate to increased antibacterial activity. Specific indications for benzylpenicillin include: Cellulitis, Bacterial endocarditis, Gonorrhea, Meningitis, Aspiration pneumonia, lung abscess, Community-acquired pneumonia, Syphilis, Septicemia in children, Septic Arthritisshow more
