Wonder Drugs: A History of Antibiotics

Front Cover
Lippincott, 1964 - Antibiotics - 285 pages
Several hundred of these miracle drugs have been discovered in a span of some fifteen years. Some are very similar to others in their action; others offer new possibilities to the research doctor. Of them all, only about twenty have found their way into general medical use. The rest have been found to be either too toxic or insufficiently active to be effective. - p. 2.
