Description

Terizidone Pharmacodynamics
Terizidone is a bacteriostatic antibiotic with a broad spectrum of action, derived from D-cycloserine. The mechanism of action is based on disruption of the synthesis of the cell wall of microorganisms. Terizidone is active against Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycobacterium bovis, Mycobacterium avium, as well as Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis. Enterococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli, Citrobacter spp., Enterobacter spp., Morganella morganii, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa are also sensitive.
Minimum effective concentration of terizidone for Mycobacterium tuberculosis is 10-40 mg/l, for Staphylococcus spp – 8-32 mg/l, for Gram-negative bacteria of clinical significance – 50-250 mg/l.
Cases of the development of secondary resistance are rare. There is no cross-resistance between terizidone and other antituberculosis drugs.

 

Indications
Tuberculosis (various forms and localizations) in the treatment of drug-resistant forms of the disease.
