Azicip 250 mg
Azicip 250 mg is an antibiotic medicine prescribed to treat bacterial infections. Bacteria that are commonly found in the surroundings are a potential threat to the human body which is continuously exposed to them. Azicip have better penetrative quality into the tissues as compared to other medicines. It also has better and improved tolerance than others.
Bacteria (single celled living organisms) are readily found on and in human’s body especially the gut. It covers a vast majority of area in terms of the body. It is said that a human body has more bacteria than the cells. The most found and retracted bacteria are Coccus or spherical form bacteria, Bacillus or rod-shaped bacteria, Spirilla or spiral shaped bacteria and Vibrio or comma shaped bacteria. Azicip 250 mg belongs to the drug category of macrolides which is used to treat bacterial infections. The very frequently used forms of macrolides used are erythromycin, azithromycin and clarithromycin. Bacterial infections namely bronchitis (respiratory issue), pneumonia (lung based), tonsilitis, ears sinusitis, skin etc. can be treated using this medicine. Sexually transmitted disease are also treated by this.
Principle of working
50S is the subunit of the ribosome od prokaryotes i.e., the bacteria and archaea (single celled who lack a defined nucleus, or the structural integrity is ambiguous) which is the site for antibiotics to inhibit the growth of bacteria. The macrolides can bind themselves with the 50S ribosomal subunit, this prevents the growth of the peptide chain responsible to send the signals namely via the mRNA (messenger ribonucleic acid). This prevents the addition of amino acids to the chain making it weaker to sustain. Thus, the bacteria get killed by inhibition of its growth via broken peptide chain.
