Clindamycin is a lincosamide antibiotic used to treat infections caused by susceptible microorganisms. Clindamycin is a semi-synthetic antibiotic derived from lincomycin. It has anti-acne and antibacterial activity. It binds to subunit 50 of the bacterial ribosome and inhibits the early stages of protein synthesis. It is very strong against gram-positive and anaerobic bacteria.
