Infections caused by tetracycline-sensitive organisms include: Respiratory tract infections. Chronic bronchitis. Urinary tract infections. Sexually transmitted diseases and Skin Infections.
Mechanism Of Action
Tetracyclines are taken up into sensitive bacterial cells by an active transport process. Once within the cell they bind reversibly to the 30S subunit of the ribosome, preventing the binding of aminoacyl transferase RNA and inhibiting protein synthesis and hence cell growth.
Known hypersensitivity to any of the tetracycline's or any of the other constituents in the formulation; chronic renal/hepatic dysfunction; renal impairment, particularly if severe; in systemic lupus erythematosus; children under 12 years pregnancy and breastfeeding women. Benign intracranial hypertension has been reported following the concomitant use of tetracycline's and Vitamin A or retinoids and therefore concurrent use should be contraindicated.
