Hi Ashley,

I noticed you have edited my Antibiotics article. Can I just say that I think you hve done a fantastic job. I simply can't tell what you have changed or adjusted.
smiley - ok

There is one sentence upon rereading that I am a little unhappy about - it is in the 'Limit the Use of Antibiotics paragraph' and is currently 'The drawbacks have clearly outweighed the benefits on this issue and so now the overuse of antibiotics is now frowned upon.'
I think one of the 'now's should be removed from this sentence.

Wow, I'm such a sledger eh? smiley - winkeye

Thanks for the work on my baby smiley - smiley

Orcus,

Firstly let me congratulate you on a great entry!

I spotted this change in my edit this morning, and it should read better now. I've also made some tiny tweaks, nips and tucks here and there.

I hope all's well... smiley - smiley

BTW The subject title of this conversation terrified me...

Could you read carefully through the text again for me to make sure that the science spellings are correct? I'm always terrified of techie typos... smiley - smiley

OK, typos for correction

There is a space before the full stop after fever in the second paragraph . smiley - winkeye

After Cell Wall Synthesis Inhibitors - possess is spelt wrong.

In the DNA gyrase inhibitors section - millimetres is spelt incorrectly

S. aureus does not seem to have the abbreviation . after the S. I guess this is a matter of style however.

There is a capital A in S aureus in the paragraph before Methods of resistance, this is not correct, the second word in bacterial name taxonomy is never capitalised.

In footnote 8 it says 'The bit before the '-ase' in an enzyme's name refers typical to the type of chemical reaction that it catalyses.' typical should be typically I reckon,

The title: So what Can We Do About This - might need some changes to the letter cases smiley - erm

That's all I can see in my final proof reading. Hope that helps.

Things are smiley - cool by the way. Hope things are that way yourself smiley - smiley

Excellent article

Just as a side note your "gentamycin" should be "gentamicin" as it's a semi-synthetic aminoglycoside.
