American InterContinental UniversityDepartment
The discovery of the antibiotic Penicillin in the 1920s made a big impact on human history. Not only did it provide a cure for bacterial infections that were once deadly, but it also led to a golden age in discovery of new antibiotics. The great benefit of these drugs is that antibiotics inhibit the growth of bacterial cells or kill them outright, and yet, on the whole, do not harm eukaryotic cells.

|Sulfonamides||Inhibit folic acid synthesis|
|Vancomycin||Blocks cross-linking of the peptidoglycan in the cell wall|
