Description

Nitrofural (Furacilin) Pharmacodynamics
Antimicrobial agent. Active against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria (including Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Escherichia coli, Clostridium perfringens). Effective with resistance of microorganisms to other antimicrobial agents (not from nitrofuran group).
It has a mechanism of action that differs from other chemotherapeutic agents: microbial flavoproteins restore the 5-nitrogroup; the resulting highly reactive amino derivatives change the conformation of proteins, including ribosomal, and other macromolecules, causing cell death. Resistance develops slowly and does not reach a high degree.
Pharmacokinetics
When administered topically and externally, absorption is insignificant. It penetrates through histohematic barriers and is evenly distributed in fluids and tissues. The main route of metabolism is reduction of the nitro group. It is excreted by kidneys and partially with bile.

 

Indications
