Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • Either that, or the resistance to imipenem is proof multiple evolutionary steps can be skipped in nature.

    Behe's Test

  • You are wrong to state that "resistance to imipenem is proof that multiple evolutionary steps can be skipped in nature."

    Behe's Test

  • Either that, or the resistance to imipenem is proof multiple evolutionary steps can be skipped in nature.

    Behe's Test

  • The reason is that neither single nor double point mutations to the enzyme allowed it to destroy the certain antibiotic (called "imipenem").

    Behe's Test

  • (CTZ), the carbapenems such as imipenem and meropenem, and to a lesser degree amoxicillin-clavulanate, remain the backbone of current initial or intensive phase melioidosis treatment.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • The carbapenems, available since the 1970s, which include imipenem and meropenem among others.

    SUPERBUG

  • Well heck if you/he admit that resistance in question (to imipenem) evolves, then the origin of imipenem resistance is not a failed "test" of standard evolutionary theory and the whole example is pointless except as an observation that strengthens standard evolutionary theory.

    Behe's Test

  • Behe & fans, however, appear to have misread Hall to say that imipenem resistance couldn't evolve at all, or at least is wildly improbable.

    Behe's Test

  • The carbapenems, available since the 1970s, which include imipenem and meropenem among others.
