The In Vivo Significance of Antibiotics in the Tissues
Pharmacology as a way of thinking can contribute much to practical medicine. One of these contributions is that it has been shown in animal and in vitro experiments that for nearly all drugs a quantitative relation-ship exists between dose, or better concentration, and effect. Moreover, concentrations lower than so called threshold concentrations exert no effect at all, while at the other end a maximal effect can be found which depends on the characteristics of the interaction of drug and receptor. This maximal effect cannot be exceeded by much higher concentrations.
