Types of Antibiotics


Antibiotics are medications designed for treatment of different infections. Antibiotics appeared in 1928 and since then hundreds drugs have been developed.

Antibiotics contain various substances providing pharmacological action. For most effective antibiotics use, antibiotics are divided into different types.

It allowed to increase efficiency and safety of antibiotics as for each disease an individual treatment is required.

Classification was made by action and chemical compound.

By affecting microbial cells antibiotics were divided into 3 groups:

  • Bactericidal antibiotics (Destroy bacteria, but bacterium cells are not affected)
  • Bacteriostatic antibiotics (Bacteria do not destroyed, but failed to be produced)
  • Bacteriolytic antibiotics (Destroy bacteria and cells)


  • Also, there are types by pharmacological action:

  • wide action to all gram-positive and gram-negative bacilli.
  • pharmacological action to gram-positive and gram-negative coccus (similar to antibiotics of wide action)
  • antibiotics used in treatment of gram-negative bacilli
  • antifungal antibiotics
  • antituberculous antibiotics
  • anti-inflammatory antibiotics


  • ATTENTION: Only the doctor can define a disease cause and indicate the correct antibiotic type!!!
