Penicillin, also known as penicillin, was the first antibiotic found in humans and the world's largest by sales. In 1953, the birth of the first penicillin in China revealed the history of antibiotic production in China. By 2001, the production of penicillin in China accounted for 60% of the global market share, and China is now the world's largest producer of penicillin.

In a dozen years ago, when people go to a hospital to inject penicillin, almost all have been exposed to penicillin can in almost any hospital, clinic, including rural clinics to see, can be found in the popularity of penicillin in our country is very wide. But now people go to the hospital almost see the shadow of penicillin, even in patients with active asked the doctor to use penicillin was told "no", that what makes household once penicillin will disappear from the market in just a few years later?

Cic advisory medicine, a researcher at Guo Fan li pointed out that penicillin disappeared in medicine market in China there are three main reasons: first is the use of penicillin have danger, penicillin has a larger adverse reactions, and even do 'lives are in danger of penicillin skin test. The second is the resistance of penicillin, which has been used in our country for nearly 60 years, and drug resistance has begun to emerge.

The third reason is that the profits of penicillin are too low, which is the main reason for the disappearance of penicillin. The price of penicillin is cheap, the factory price is only 0.7 yuan, and the price of the fourth-generation cephalosporin antibiotic is 40-70 yuan on average. Existing in our country under the system of medical treatment, the doctor prescribe kickbacks are the unwritten rules of the industry, a "western" force hin market price is 37.2 yuan, a penicillin costs less than 1 yuan. It can be seen that, under the same conditions, xilixin's profits are many times more than penicillin.

According to guo, the third reason for the disappearance of penicillin in China's drug market can also be seen that the current system is the most fundamental reason for the disappearance of penicillin. If the medicine for the medical system was abolished, so not only is penicillin and other real "affordable" drugs can once again into the line of sight of people, and the problem that the common people "to see a doctor expensive" can also be properly resolved.
