Description

Nifuroxazid-Eco Pharmacodynamics
Nifuroxazide is an antimicrobial agent derived from nitrofuran. It blocks activity of dehydrogenases and inhibits respiratory chain, tricarboxylic acid cycle and a number of other biochemical processes in a microbial cell. It destroys the membrane of the microbial cell and reduces the production of toxins by microorganisms. Highly active against Campylobacter jejuni, Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp, Shigella spp; Clostridium perfringens, Vibrio cholera, pathogenic Vibrions and Vibrio parahaemolytique, Staphylococcus spp. Weakly sensitive to nifuroxazide: Citrobacter spp, Enterobacter cloacae and Proteus indologenes. Resistant to nifuroxazide: Klebsiella spp, Proteus mirabilis, Providencia spp, Pseudomonas spp. It does not disturb the balance of intestinal microflora. At acute bacterial diarrhea it restores intestinal eubiosis. In case of infection with enterotropic viruses prevents the development of bacterial superinfection.

Indications
Acute bacterial diarrhea without a deterioration of the general condition, fever, intoxication.
