- The most important antibiotics and antimycotics:
Spectrum – dosage – side-effects

- Administration of antibiotics during pregnancy, renal and hepatic insufficiency, dialysis
- Including statements on the cost of therapy

Numerous tips and troubleshooting guides on topics such as:

Adjusted to European standards:
Up-to-date substances, authorizations, resistances and trade names.

The first guide to antibiotic therapy for Europe!

All in all, an approach that looks towards the future in which antimicrobial resistance will certainly represent an ever-growing obstacle for the medical class, and for which books like this will undoubtedly represent a precious resource.
Giuseppe Cornaglia, MD, PhD
President, European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID)

This book will most certainly be a valuable asset for all those treating patients with infections. While primarily aimed at the hospital setting, most of the very useful information can certainly be used in other healthcare settings, too.
