Pharmacological action

Erimicin is a macrolide antibiotic. Has bacteriostatic action. However at higher doses against susceptible organisms has a bactericidal effect. Erimicin (Erythromycin) is reversibly bound to the ribosome of bacteria, thereby inhibiting protein synthesis. Erimicin (Erythromycin) is active against gram-positive bacteria: Staphylococcus spp. (strains producing and not producing penicillinase), Streptococcus spp. (including Streptococcus pneumoniae); gram-negative bacteria: Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Haemophilus influenzae, Bordetella pertussis, Brucella spp., Legionella spp., Bacillus anthracis, Corynebacterium diphtheriae; anaerobic bacteria: Clostridium spp. Erimicin (Erythromycin) is also active against Mycoplasma spp., Chlamydia spp., Spirochaetaceae, Rickettsia spp. To Erimicin (Erythromycin) resistant gram-negative bacilli, including Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Shigella spp., Salmonella spp.

Pharmacokinetics

Erimicin (Erythromycin) bioavailability is 30-65%. Distributed in most tissues and body fluids. Plasma protein binding is 70-90%. Metabolised in the liver, partly with the formation of inactive metabolites. T1/2 is 1.4-2 hours. It is derived from bile and urine.

Erimicin (Erythromycin) drug interactions

With simultaneous use of Erimicin (Erythromycin) with theophylline, aminophylline, caffeine, there is an increase in their concentration in blood plasma and thus increases the risk of toxic effects.

Erimicin (Erythromycin) increases the concentrations of cyclosporine in the blood plasma and may increase the risk of nephrotoxicity.

Drugs that block tubular secretion prolongs T1/2 of Erimicin (Erythromycin).

Incompatible with lincomycin, clindamycin and chloramphenicol (antagonism).

Erimicin (Erythromycin) reduces the bactericidal action of beta-lactam antibiotics (penicillins, cephalosporins, carbapenems).

At the same time receiving chemotherapy, which is carried metabolism in the liver (carbamazepine, valproic acid, hexobarbital, phenytoin, alfentanil, dizopiramid, lovastatin, bromocriptine), may increase the concentration of these drugs in plasma (an inhibitor of microsomal liver enzymes).

IV injection of Erimicin (Erythromycin) increases the effects of ethanol (accelerating gastric emptying and decrease the duration of alcohol dehydrogenase in the gastric mucosa).

Erimicin (Erythromycin) reduces the clearance of triazolam and midazolam and therefore may increase the pharmacological effects of benzodiazepines.
