Composition

1 g of preparation contains active substance: Colistin sulphate – 6 000 000 IU; Additional ingredients.

Pharmacological properties

Colistin is an antibiotic from the group of polymyxins which are synthesized by aerobic spore-forming coli Bacillus polymyxa. Colistin has a bactericidal action against Gramnegative bacteria like E. coli, Salmonella spp., Pasteurella spp., Haemophilus spp., Bordetella spp. Colistin binds to phospholipids of cytoplasmic membrane, increases its permeability for both intra- and external cellular components which leads to destruction of the bacterial cell. When administered the colistin sulfate has poor resorption ability (practically not absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract). Excreted through the intestines. It does not have acumulative effect.
