Ampicillin is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections for cats. The correct dosage should be advised by the vet for the animal in question to prevent the wrong dosage. The information should be on the label of the medication.

It's called Toxicity. (This is the actual definition)

The previous recommended dosage of intramuscular dosage for a cat is 2 ml. This has now changed do to toxicity of N-SAIDs in cats.

how ampicillin and amoxycillin synthesised

The active ingredients in ampicillin are: ampicillin sodium, ampicillin trihydrate. This drug is used as a widely prescribed antibiotic and is a close relative to amoxicillin.

measure blood drug levels so that the most effective dosage can be determined, with toxicity prevented.

Lethal dose 50, the dosage at which 50% of animals (usually rabbits, I think) given the chemical die as a result of toxicity.

Half life of ampicillin is 1 hour.

The pGlo plasmid contains an ampicillin resistance gene. This gene encodes an enzyme, รŽยฒ lactimase, which enzymatically degrades ampicillin. Therefore, bacteria that take up the plasmid (transformants) become resistant to ampicillin.

Paracetamol or acetaminophen is harmful only when it's taken more than the recommended dosage and its overdosage harms the liver (hepatic toxicity).

This is a risky thing to do ! Only medication that has specifically prescribed for the child by a doctor should be given. The deviation from this course can be lethal.

there are no known interactions between alcoholand Ampicillin

There are no known drug interactions between ampicillin and the contraceptive implant.

Ampicillin is in a class of medications called antibiotics. Ampicillin destroys the bacterial cells that cause many illnesses. Antibiotics are also notorious for killing the good and bad bacteria.

ampicillin is an antibiotic which kills bacteria, since 1961 it has been used to treat bacterial infections.

Ampicillin is an aminopenicillin that has antibiotic properties. Please see its page on wikipedia for more information.

Ampicillin is not effective in treating fever blister or cold sores. Cold sores are caused by herpes simplex virus, and ampicillin is effective only against some bacteria.

It could. The FDA recently recommended reducing the dosage from 1000 mg per dose to 650 mg per dose due to its toxicity.

Ampicillin is an antibiotic that is usually used as a reporter gene in cloning. A plasmid containing the ampicillin resistance gene (as well as another target gene within the plasmid) is introduced into the bacterial host. If the bacterium has taken up the plasmid and is expressing the plasmid, it will be resistant to ampicillin. LB is used as a growth medium and ampicillin to verify the plasmid is within the bactrium. No growth means no plasmid in the bacterial host...

Bear in mind that toxicity is always a combination of the material in question, and the dosage. Pretty much anything can, in sufficient dosage, be toxic. Potassium Chloride (KCl) dissolves easily in water. In giant sized doses it is in fact toxic to humans. But you'd know you were drinking it (as it tastes salty) and in all likelihood you'd vomit it back up long before acute toxicity sets in. As it's not a cumulative, chronic toxicity is not a factor here. So, can you be poisoned by drinking KCl? Not without knowing it. And not without a lot of effort on your part. And even then I have my doubts.

It is a gene which is present in vectors that code for an enzyme that cleaves ampicillin, which inhibits the ampicillin from preventing Save the growth of bacteria.

Ampicillin is an antibiotic, a medication given to fight an infection. As such, it does not have an antidote, since antidotes are only given for poisons or toxic substances.
