“This book focuses on key points of basic microbiology and antimicrobial pharmacotherapy and organizes them into a concise guide … must-have antimicrobial reference guide for all medical and pharmacy students.” – Lindsay McDonnell, PharmD for Doody’s Review Service

Antibiotics Simplified, Fifth Edition is a best-selling, succinct guide designed to bridge knowledge gained in basic sciences courses with clinical practice in infectious diseases. This practical text reviews basic microbiology and how to approach the pharmacotherapy of a patient with a presumed infection. It also contains concise Drug Class Reviews with an explanation of the characteristics of various classes of antibacterial drugs and antifungal drugs. This text simplifies learning infectious disease pharmacotherapy and condenses the many facts that are taught about antibiotics into one quick reference guide.
