Series: Pharmacology – Research, Safety Testing and Regulation
BISAC: MED058170

Amoxicillin represents the lead substance of the aminopenicillin group of beta-lactames, which is characterized by a broader antibacterial spectrum and acid-stability compared to penicillin G. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the medical uses, mechanisms of action and potential adverse effects of amoxicillin.

Topics discussed include microfibers of biodegradable polymers loaded with amoxicillin; the occurrence, fate and effects of amoxicillin in aquatic systems; accurate instrumental analytical methods for the quality control of amoxicillin in the pharmaceutical industry; and the pharmaceutical properties and clinical applications of amoxicillin.
