Types of Medicines There are four general types of medicines:
antipyretics Chemistry-Related Discovered by Scottish doctor Alexander Fleming
Composed of penicillum chrysogenum Chemistry Meets Biology Medicines are the most important part of the medical field. Medicine-making is closely associated with chemistry because chemicals are mixed together to form cures. How does chemistry help in creating antibiotics?

Web. 20 May 2013. <publications.nigms.nih.gov/chemhealth/me By Sreya Sara Chamathil What is a medicine? A medicine is a mixture of compounds that serves the purpose of curing an illness. Modern chemistry, along with organic chemistry, have helped to make medicines. Medicines in the same category have the same general chemical structure, though there may be slight variations. For example, all antibiotics chemically look the same. Main Classes of Antibiotics penicillins

Penicillin V: 350.38952 Chemical Formula: C 16 H 18 N 2 O 5 S How does penicillin work in the body? It breaks down cell walls. One important substance in the cell wall is transpeptidase, which accepts and activates penicillin molecules. When it is activated, penicillin dissolves the cell wall and causes the death of the harmful cell. What is penicillin used for? Stomach ulcers (sores inside the stomach)
Lyme disease (infection spread by ticks)
Gangrene (decomposition of body tissue)

It cannot be ingested by mouth because the pH of stomach acid is 2, so the penicillin would be destroyed before it reached the bloodstream. "Science: Stem Cells 101."
