Pharmacology Medical Terminology Corner


This week continue to explore medications that use a root word for the different groups under the broad category of antibiotics. While the base root does not hold true for every anti-infective group it does for many.

You can see from this chart that the root words: sulfa, oxacins, cillins, and mycins are not exact for each category. It is helpful, however, as the types are used for different pathological (disease-causing) organisms.

Explore the organisms that antibiotics are used for.

Include the following aspects in the assignment:

  • Make a simple chart for each of the six categories of antibiotics in the chart
  • Research each category and under each describe the specific type of organism each might be used for (gram-positive cocci, gram-negative bacillus, etc.)
  • Include the illness that might be caused by the organism (gastroenteritis, pneumonia, skin infection)
  • Cite any references. At all times proper grammar, sentence structure, and spelling. Copy and pasting are not allowed. Always use your own words View your assignment rubric.
