II. GENERAL PROPERTIES A. Chemical Properties Penicillins are derivatives of benzylpenicillin, from which the methyl benzene radical is split off by amidase producing 6-aminopenicillanic acid, the parent compound of all semisynthetic penicillins 6. The compound consists of 2 basic structures: 1 Thiazolidine Ring (A) 2.Beta-Lactam Ring (B) - Site of action of Beta-lactamase - Site of action of Amidase - Site of attachment of side chain , which determines many of the antibacterial and pharmacologic characteristics of a derivative ( spectrum and penicillin-resistance) 7. Mechanisms of Action: Specific: inhibit the last step in the peptidoglycan synthesis of the cell wall Underlying: 1. inhibition of transpeptidase enzymes 2. activation of penicillin binding proteins (PBPs) 3. activation of autolysins (murein hydrolases) 8. C. Mechanisms of Resistance 1. inactivation of antibiotic by Beta lactamases 2. modification of PBPs 3. impaired penetration of drug to target PBPs 4. presence of an efflux pump Kinetics: - absorption vary with the preparation depending on their acid stability and protein binding - absorption of most oral penicillins (except amoxicillin) impaired by food and drugs should be given 1-2 hours before or after meal; parenteral complete and rapid 9. - cannot penetrate the blood-brain barrier; but 50% of the plasma concentration can pass through in the presence of inflammation: Probenecid and certain organic acids can inhibit transfer from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to blood stream; may lead to increase CSF level. - Metabolized by the liver to penicillanic/penicillenic acid; penicillamine, penicilloic acid and other penicilloyl derivatives (allergenic metabolites) - Excreted primarily by the kidneys (90% tubular secretion, 10% glomerular filtration) small amount through bile and feces, sputum and milk; renal excretion inhibited by probenecid 10. E. Adverse Effects: 1. Hypersensitivity reactions most common adverse effects - cause the highest incidence of antibiotic allergy a. major antigenic determinant- penicilloyl metabolite skin testing( penicilloyl polylysine (PPL) ) b. Signs and symptoms: - varied skin rashes and purpuric reactions - angioedema and anyaphylactic reactions - fever - eosinophilia - interstitial nephritis 11. 2.Gastrointestinal disturbances after oral administration 3.Convulsions following rapid IV administration 4. Accidental injection into the sciatic nerve severe pain and nerve dysfunction persisting for weeks 5. Chronic use may cause: hepatitis overgrowth of minor/atypical organisms following use of broad spectrum preparations 12. 6. Specific toxicities: a. Procaine Penicillin G after accidental IV injection: pulmonary embolism acute psychotic reactions b. Oxacillin and Nafcillin hepatitis granulocytopenia, bone marrow depression c.

Aqueous Penicillin G - peak in 15-30 min -T - 0.5-2 hrs. - intramuscular B. Procaine Penicillin G peak in 1-3 hrs. T1/2 12 hrs. C. Benzathine Penicillin G mean duration of antimicrobial activity - 26 days - 60% albumin bound - widely distributed to the tissues and body fluids - does not readily enter the cerebrospinal fluid when meninges are not inflamed - probenecid and uremia inhibits active transport secretion into the blood stream 16.
