Description

Sulginum-Avexima Pharmacodynamics
Antibacterial agent of broad spectrum action, sulfonamide derivative. Sulfaguanidine is active against Gram-positive and Gram-negative microorganisms (including pathogens of intestinal infections). It is poorly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Acts mainly in the intestinal lumen. The mechanism of action is due to competitive antagonism with PABA and competitive inhibition of dihydropteroatsintatase, which leads to disruption of tetrahydrofolic acid synthesis, required for synthesis of purines and pyrimidines.

Indications
Bacterial dysentery. Colitis and enterocolitis with diarrhea. Carrying dysentery bacilli, typhoid bacilli. Preparation for operations on the small and large intestine.

Contraindications .
Hypersensitivity to sulfonamides.
