General Info

Description

Ciprotab® is manufactured by Wockhardt. Ciprotab® raw material is Ciprofloxacin, that is a second generation synthetic antibiotic of the drug class Fluoroquinolones.

Indications:

- respiratory tract infections (RTIs) (acute and chronic bronchitis, obstructive airways disease (COPD), empyema, lung abscess, bronchiectasis, lobar and bronchopneumonia, acute exacerbation of cystic fibrosis, otitis media, sinusitis and mastoiditis);

- urinary tract infections (UTIs) (acute and chronic pyelonephritis, cystitis, urethritis, prostatitis, epididymitis and chronic complicated or recurrent UTI caused by multi-drug resistant organisms and/or Pseudomonas aeruginosa);

- skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) (infected ulcers, wound infections, abscesses, cellulitis, erysipelas, infected burns);

- surgical infections (peritonitis, intra-abdominal abscess, cholangitis, cholecystitis, empyema of gall bladder);

- bone and joint infections (acute and chronic osteomyelitis, septic arthritis);

- pelvic infections (Salpingitis, endometritis, pelvic inflammatory disease);

- sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) (Gonorrhoea);

- gastrointestinal infections (GI) (enteric fever, infective diarrhea);

- severe systemic infections (Septicaemia, bacteremia, infections in immunocompromised patients).

Ciprotab® is associated with a high risk of tendinitis and tendon rupture in all age groups. The risk is higher in older patients (over 60 years of age), in patients who are taking corticosteroids, in patients with kidney, heart or lung transplants, musculoskeletal disorders.

MOA (mechanism of action):

Ciprofloxacin is bactericidal agent and it hampers the action of enzymes topoisomerase II (DNA gyrase) and topoisomerase IV, which are crucial for bacterial DNA replication, transcription, repair, and recombination. The mechanism of action of Ciprofloxacin is different from that of penicillins, cephalosporins, aminoglycosides, macrolides, and tetracyclines, meaning that bacteria resistant to these classes of antibiotics may be susceptible to Ciprofloxacin.

Ciprofloxacin is effective against E. coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter cloacae, Serratia marcescens, Proteus mirabilis, Providencia rettgeri, Morganella morganii, Citrobacter diversus, Citrobacter freundii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus epidermidis and Streptococcus faecalis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Campylobacter jejuni, Shigella flexneri and Shigella sonnei.
