We have been enthusiastic participants in the preparation of this 1st edition of Pharmaceutical Microbiology, a textbook which is reflecting advances in knowledge and the sustained relevance of microbiology in pharmacy. We have tried to develop the theme of recent editions, strengthening the connection between the basic sciences with an increased emphasis on pathogens and the host response, prescribing therapeutics and public health microbiology. This book is concerned with pharmaceutical microbiology. Pharmaceutical microbiology can be simplified as being concerned with keeping microorganisms in control within the environment and hence from contaminating the product and harnessing microorganisms to make efficacious pharmaceutical medications. Here pharmacists and microbiologists work synergistically to ensure that drug therapies target opportunistic microorganisms without harming its human host. Contents: 1.
