PHARMACO-THERAPEUTICAL ACTION

Oxytetracycline is an antibiotic of the group of tetracycline produced by Streptomyces rimosus that acts bacteriostatically against the Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria (Actinomyces spp., Bacillus anthracis, Clostridium perfringens, Clostridium tetani, Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae, Listeria monocytogenes, Nocardia, Bordetella spp., Brucella, Bartonella, Haemophilus spp., E.coli, Pasteurella spp., Shigella, Yersinia pestis), micoplasmas, spirochetes (Leptospira, inclusiv Borrelia bourgdorferi – boala Lyme), Chlamydia, rickettsis and protozoa.

The main action mode is constituted by the inhibation of proteic synthesis at the level of bacterial cell. The bactericide effect is issued by high concentrations of antibiotic.

After the parenteral administration, the tissue diffusion is good and fast. The removal is made by urine, where there are made active concentrations.
