How effective are Sitafloxacin tablets 50 mg from Japan (Gracevit, antibiotics)?
Sitafloxacin is a new-generation broad-spectrum fluoroquinolone antibacterial agent that works by inhibiting DNA replication in bacteria. It is effective for the treatment of the broad range of bacterial infections, including respiratory tract infection, urinary tract infection, cervicitis, otolaryngological infection and dental or oral surgical infection. The clinical safety profile of sitafloxacin has been characterized from 1,059 patients who participated in 10 clinical trials (D. L. Anderson. “Sitafloxacin hydrate for bacterial infections”. Drugs of Today (Barcelona), 2008, July, 44(7): 489-501).
Who should take Sitafloxacin tablets 50 mg from Japan?
Sitafloxacin is very active against many Gram-positive, Gram-negative and anaerobic clinical isolates, including strains resistant to other fluoroquinolones, like methicillin-resistant staphylococci, Streptococcus pneumoniae and other streptococci with reduced susceptibility to levofloxacin and other quinolones. Sitafloxacin has also demonstrated activity against clinical isolates of Klebsiella pneumoniae (including about 67% of strains producing extended-spectrum, beta-lactamases and resistant to ciprofloxacin), Enterobacter cloacae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa with some activity against quinolone-resistant strains and Acinetobacter baumannii.
