Although I have already sent an answer directly to Mr. Fuller, I have been 
surprised (and disappointed) that no one yet has mentioned the monobactams, 
developed for use as antimicrobial agents with specific inhibitory activity 
against Gram-negative organisms.  These were described as "magic bullets" 
against Gram-negatives when they were first disclosed in the early 1980s.
