Levofloxacin Ecolevid Pharmacodynamics
Levofloxacin is a synthetic broad-spectrum antibacterial agent of fluoroquinolones group, containing the left-handed isomer ofloxacin as an active substance.
Levofloxacin blocks DNA-giase, disrupts superspiralization and cross-linking of DNA breaks, inhibits DNA synthesis, causes profound morphological changes in cytoplasm, cell wall and membranes of bacteria.
Levofloxacin acts bactericidally, it is active against a large number of bacterial pathogens both in vitro and in vivo.
