Other Antibiotics

  • D. Kraft
Part of the Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology book series (HEP, volume 63)


In addition to the penicillins and cephalosporins, many other substances with antibiotic properties are known and widely used. Substances in this group include the tetracyclines, chloramphenicol and thiamphenicol, aminoglycosides, polymyxins, rifamycins, macrolides, lincomycins, and other miscellaneous compounds. These antibiotics are used in the systemic and topical treatment of infectious diseases. Some of these antibiotics have also been used to stimulate growth in animals; they may still be in use now and may therefore persist in the environment.
