Oxytetracycline injection 20%
Each ml contains
Pharmacological action: tetracycline antibiotics. By reversibly binding with the receptor on the 30S subunit of bacterial ribosome, oxytetracycline interferes with the formation of ribosome complex between tRNA and mRNA, prevents peptide chain from extending and inhibits protein synthesis, so that bacteria can be rapidly inhibited. Oxytetracycline can inhibit both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Bacteria are cross resistant to oxytetracycline and doxycycline.
