Antibiotics are effective against bacteria, usually by breaking down the cell wall. These are given to ward off infection after surgery or injury, or for diseases like TB that are caused by bacteria.
Chemotherapeutic agents are poisons used to fight cancer. Cancer cells are "young" because they are rapidly dividing. "Young" cells are more vulnerable to poisons, and also radiation in radiation therapy.
Antibiotics are fairly safe, although their misuse or overuse can be disastrous. They also kill "friendly" bacteria that inhabit every inch of your body. These friendly colonies help keep malicious bacteria from getting a foothold.
Chemotherapy can be a very difficult experience. Although the target is cancer cells, the whole body is poisoned. This and radiation is why cancer patients so often lose hair, are nauseated, etc.
A newcomer on this field is interferon. It is an effective antiviral. This type of drug gives therapy for diseases like HIV and hepatitis which are caused by viruses and are not treatable with antibiotics. Side effects can be bad flu like symptoms for 3-5 days after the weekly shots. Antibiotics are agents that are derived from certain microorganisms, and are used to kill or inhibit certain microorganisms, which is not synthesized in the laboratory.
On the other hand, Chemotherapeutic are agents that are synthesized in the laboratory.
An anthracycline is any of a class of antibiotic, chemotherapeutic agents used to treat cancer.
This would only be apparent if the organisms are sensitive to One antibiotic and resistant to all others.
For determining the type of causal agent of infectious diseases and for checking their sensitivity to antibiotics and chemotherapeutic agents in vitro by means of the inhibition zone determination method. The antibiogram allows rational and selective chemotherapy. The test discs can be coated with chemotherapeutic agents, placed on the innoculated nutrient agar and incubated. The size of the inhibition zone is a measure for the effectiveness of the substances.
Penicillin is the first antibiotic to be used in practice in 1939. Sulphonamide is 'not' the antibiotic. It is chemical produced in laboratory. Also called as antibacterial chemotherapeutic agent.

Domagk, if answering for Mastering Microbiology.
No, it is a synthetic chemotherapeutic antibiotic of the fluoroquinolone drug. You can take this if you are allergic to penicillin as well. Hope this helped! :D
an antibiotic is a substance or compound (also called chemotherapeutic agent) that kills or inhibits the growth of bacteria.
Chemotherapeutic waste is place in a yellow container.
The antibiotic tested is not likely to be effective in eradicating the infection. *The infectious agents are a strain that have developed (evolved) a natural resistance to a particular antibiotic.

FDA-approved agents include ciprofloxacin, doxycycline and penicillin
A few skin cancer treatment options are surgical removal of tumors, applying ointment that contains chemotherapeutic agents to the surface of the skin over a few weeks.
There have been recent studies showing that marijuana retards the growth of lung cancers. Otherwise, marijuana can relieve the nausea caused by the chemotherapeutic agents and help with appetite.
A common antibiotic resistance strain of bacteria is MRSA. MRSA is an antibiotic strain of staph infection that was a big worry for people in 2007.
Because the viruses multiply (replicate) and at the same time they change, so the same vaccine is not gonna be good for the next generation of viruses, they constantly change.
gravity is pulling the rock materials down by its force but agents of erosion is changing of rocks
Chloromycetin is often cited as being the first synthetic antibiotic. However, although it can be produced synthetically (and may have been the first antibiotic to be industrially produced like this) chloromycetin is still an entirely natural molecule (Ehrlich et al., 1947).The first completely synthetic and clinically relevant antibiotic for which there is no natural analogue is nalidixic acid, discovered in 1962 (Lesher et al., 1962).References:Ehrlich J, Bartz QR, Smith RM, Joslyn DA & Burkholder PR (1947) Chloromycetin, a new antibiotic from a soil Actinomycete.

At present, a chemotherapeutic regime designated CHOP includes the anti-cancer drugs cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone.
Fungi are eukaryotic and are composed of rigid cell wall largely made of chitin which is a polymer of N-acetylglucosamine rather than peptidoglycan which is a characteristic component of most bacterial cell walls.
Penicillin is a beta-lactam antibiotic while streptomycin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic. Beta-lactams generally act by inhibiting transpeptidation of peptidoglycan synthesis in cell wall synthesis. Aminoglycosides interact with the 30s ribosomal subunit and inhibits protein synthesis in the cell.
Alexander Fleming discovered Penicillin.It is one of the earliest discovered and wildly used antibiotic agents,derived from the Penicillin mold.
