  1. I copied the below from This is what my pharmacology textbook says about penicillins. It includes the cephalosporins with the penicillins (I'm paraphrasing): First-Generation penicillin G and penicillin V have a narrow spectrum of clinical use (this means there are only a few organisms that they are able to successfully treat with this class of penicillin) good for common gram-positive bacteria that cause ear and throat infections, venereal diseases of gonorrhea and syphilis, and staph infections due to Staphylococcus aureus that cause abscesses, endocarditis and pneumonia a very high number of the drugs in this group are resistant to organisms that produce penicillinase [Penicillinase is an enzyme that some bacteria are capable of producing. This enzyme is also called a beta-lactamase and it inactivates some of the penicillins.] Second-Generation ampicillin, amoxicillin have an extended or broad spectrum of clinical use work equally as well as penicillin G class plus effective against Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis and Haemophilus influenzae which are associated with urinary, respiratory and ear infections all drugs in this class can be taken orally as they are well-absorbed from the GI tract. Patients will get higher plasma levels of amoxicillin than with ampicillin, so amoxicillin is more frequently ordered ampicillin can also be given IM or IV not very effective against penicillinase-producing organisms Third-Generation carbenicillin and ticarcillin carbenicillin can be given orally; ticarcillin is given IM or IV broader spectrum of use than the second-generation penicillins used in the treatment of serious urinary, respiratory and bacteremic infections due to gram-negative Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Proteus vulgaris not resistant to penicillinase-producing organisms Fourth-Generation mezlocillin sodium, piperacillin more potent than the other three classes given IM or IV have less sodium salt in them than the other penicillins so if a patient has congestive heart failure and needs restricted sodium intake this may be a reason for the doctor choosing one of these penicillins for them used for serious infections due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Bacteroides fragilis in combination with other antibiotics not resistant to penicillinase-producing organisms.
  2. A third world person cares about not hitting a cat ? ?
  3. Both Cambodia and Vietnam have been dirt poor for so many years due to war and UN economic embargo. I was in HCMC two years ago and they tried to charge me three times the local price. I believe the Cambodians will try to do the same to me. I like Thailand because "most of the time" Thais only charge me 30% more.
  4. "Medical care in Thailand is at least as good as in Germany " ? ? An average citizen in Germany uses 5th generation antibiotic, an average citizen in Thailand use ?? generation antibiotic. Four years ago in Shanghai , I got a case of pharyngitis, I went to an average neiborhood clinic and received 2nd generation antibiotic. It didn't work at all after 4 days, so I went to a big hospital clinic and paid 5 times as much and received 4th generation antibiotic. Fourth generation antibiotic started to work after just 24 hours.
  5. Chains on the feet of an elephant keeps an elephant behaving like a zombie for life. See youtube's / elephantnews to see how lively a free elephant can be.
  6. Language problem is the only reason.
  7. It happens quite often among tour groups in China, especially among the low priced ones.
  8. The smell should be gone in a week, it is no big deal.
  9. There is nothing wrong with third world habits.
  10. Third world Asians behave just like Europeans before becoming filthy rich from colonialism.
  11. Those three are over populated and at one time dirt poor.
  12. She does not look like an average tan skin Thai girl. There are many pretty tan skin Thai girls in the country. It is not right to ignore all those pretty tan skin Thai girls. When I go to a soapy massage, I make it my business to have a young pretty tan skin Thai girl.
  13. Cooked durian, my favorites .
  14. Big sewer pipes cost much money to install. Flood water would go away by itself.
  15. Stop picking on the mainland Chinese, they are only doing what Europeans do 100 years ago.
