Hi Guys,

I am just very short on time and was wondering if someone has the summary for 1) Mechanism of resistance for different drugs and bugs
2) the different modes of disease transfer ( i.e ticks, flies, etc.)

Thanks alot!!!!!!!!!!!

Default i dont have a ready list yet...

i dont have a ready list yet but i will write those i know, hopefully people will add theirs to your thread.

penicillins the bacteria change the structure of the penicillin binding proteins, also some have intrinsic beta-lactamase action. i think bact acquire resistance against cephalosporins by changing the structure of PBP.

tetracyclines increase efflux of drug out of cell/decreased influx

vancomycin change of D-ala D-ala to D-ala D-lac
