Description

Gentamicin-Acos Pharmacodynamics
Bactericidal broad-spectrum antibiotic of aminoglycoside group. It binds with 30S subunit of ribosomes and disrupts protein synthesis, preventing formation of transport and informational ribonucleic acid complex, which leads to misreading of genetic code and formation of nonfunctional proteins; polyribosomes are cleaved and lose the ability to synthesize protein (bacteriostasis). Unlike other antibiotics, aminoglycosides have a bactericidal effect: in high concentrations they reduce the barrier function of cell membranes and cause death of microorganisms.
Highly effective against bacterial skin infections caused by Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Proteus vulgaris, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterobacter aerogenes.
