Clindamycin Hydrochloride Description
Clindamycin is a semi-synthetic, lincosamide antibiotic that is prepared from lincomycin. It inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by hydrogen bond interactions with the 23S rRNA component of the 50S ribosomal subunit thus inducing dissociation of the peptidyl-t-RNA complex. It has antibacterial activity against Gram-positive cocci and antiprotozoal activity against Toxoplasma.
Clindamycin is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. It is an antibiotic that works by stopping the growth of bacteria.
