Eradacil

Eradacil - General Information

Eradacil is a quinolone derivative antibiotic for the treatment of bacterial infection of respiratory tract, urinary tract, GI, CNS and immuno compromised patients. Eradacil is known to be effective against penicillin resistant strains and is a single dose orally administered drug, which avoids all complications of parenteral administration seen with penicillin, especially anaphylactic shock.

 

Pharmacology of Eradacil

Eradacil is a nonfluorinated quinolone antibiotic. Its mode of action depends on blocking of bacterial DNA replication by binding itself to an enzyme called DNA gyrase, which allows the untwisting required to replicate one DNA double helix into two. Eradacil is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is active against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
