KUCERS' The Use of Antibiotics is the leading major reference work in this vast and rapidly developing field. More than doubled in length, the Sixth Edition comprises 4000 pages over 3-volumes in order to cover all new and existing therapies, and emerging drugs not yet fully licensed. The content is divided into sections: antibiotics, anti-fungal drugs, anti-parasitic drugs and anti-viral drugs; and is highly structured for ease of reference. Within each section each chapter is structured to cover susceptibility, formulations and dosing, both adult and paediatric, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, toxicity and drug distribution, detailed discussion regarding clinical uses, a feature unique to this title. Compiled by an expanded team of internationally renowned and respected editors, with a vast number of contributors spanning Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, South America, the US and Canada; the Sixth Edition adopts a truly global approach. It will remain invaluable for anyone using antimicrobial agents in their clinical practice and provides in a systematic and concise manner all the information required when treating infections susceptible to, or diseases that respond to, antimicrobial therapy.
