PHARMACEUTICALLY AND MEDICALLY RELEVANT MICROORGANISMS

 

Microorganisms of medical and pharmaceutical relevance can be broadly classified into those organisms that are harmful or problematic, and those that can be used to our advantage. Some microorganisms, depending on the situation, can fall into both categories. Microorganisms cause some of the most important diseases of humans and animals and they can also be found as major contaminants of pharmaceutical products. On the other hand, many large scale industrial processes, e.g. antibiotic production, are based on microorganisms, and selected species can be used to test disinfectant efficacy and to monitor sterilization procedures. Tables 3.3 and 3.4 respectively, list examples of some of the more pharmaceutically relevant beneficial and problematic microorganisms. Specific texts should be referred to for more detailed descriptions.
