STREPTONAMID PERORAL POWDER
Qualitative and quantitative composition:
Streptomycini sulfas 1 000 000 IU, phthalylsulfathiazolum 1.0 g per sachet (2.8 g).
Mechanism of action:
Streptomycin – is produced by Streptomyces griseus bacteria. It interferes with the protein synthesis inhibition by affecting the function of ribosomes that are important for the synthesis of proteins and propagation of bacteria.
Phtalyl sulphathiazole – in the intestine the compound releases sulphathiazole, which has a bacteriostatic effect. The functional group of sulphonamides has a competitive inhibition effect on p-aminobenzoic acid, which is a growth factor of the microorganisms.
The active substances are not resorbed in the digestive systém, the therapeutic potency of the product concentrates mostly in the digestive tube lumen, where it acts intensely on the microflora
