PHARMACOTHERAPEUTIC ACTION

Gentamicin is an aminoglycosides group antibiotic produced by Micromonospora purpurea with bactericidal action by setting the 30S ribosomal subunit of the bacterial cell, causing disruption messenger RNA, which results in the synthesis of polypeptides atypical or inadequate toxic bacterial metabolism. Gentamicin is active both in the multiplication phase and in the res t of germs.

Spectrum of activity is wide including Gram-negative bacteria (Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus spp, Escherichia coli, Klebsiela spp, Enterobacter spp) and Gram-positive (Staphylococcus spp, Streptococcus spp.)

Gentamicin is effective through local applications of primary and secondary eye infections, particularly those caused by bacteria resistant to beta-lactamic antibiotics.
