Asthma and Glycopeptides (Ketek -Antibiotic)
Asthma research- For some reason Ketek prevents exacerbations of asthma in a small study. Ketek is a glycoprotien and here is a small article that examines what glycopeptides are and their roles in the body. This is something that I had no idea about. I did know that different antibiotics work in different ways and that that is why there are different classes of them. These are amazing drugs, and it is unfortunate that we are losing the battle against antibiotic resistance.
