Powder for oral administration
1 g of the drug contains:
active ingredient: enramycin – 20 mg;
excipient - semolina.
Enramycin is an antibiotic of the polypeptides group, which makes bactericidal effect, mostly – upon gram-positive microorganisms (Clostridium perfringens, Streptococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp.). It is not absorbed from the digestive tract; therefore, it makes impact exclusively upon intestinal microflora. It inhibits growth of bacteria producing ammonia, facilitating reduction of the ammonia level in digestive tract and blood. The mechanism of action is related with impairment of cell membrane function of microorganisms through inhibition of synthesis of peptidoglycan in bacterial cell walls.
The resistance of bacteria to enramycin develops slowly. No resistance of Clostridium perfringens is observed. No cross-resistance between enramycin and other antibacterial preparations is observed in microorganisms.
