Summary: Yes, we have two basic antibiotics, both developed in the Game over the last eight years - Cillin and Mycin
Article: Cillin was discovered first at Arolos by Journeyman Healer Lornal, who had a particular interest in research (and his methods are sometimes a little dubious and not exactly above board.) In this instance, K'ren, the Weyrhealer had been given some ancient Records by Deyar, the spindoctor of the Redstars, most of which were useless or decayed beyond legibility. Still, K'ren liked to collect things like this and found some scraps in it that refered to the barely readable word 'cillin' and he gave that and the sparse information about it to Lornal to develop as part of his mastery work.
