Pharmaceutical Name of Gatigen 5 ml

General Pharmaceuticals Ltd.



Gatifloxacin’s antibacterial effect is due to its inhibition of DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV. DNA gyrase is a necessary enzyme for the replication, transcription, and repair of bacterial DNA. Topoisomerase IV is an enzyme that is involved in chromosomal DNA partitioning during bacterial cell division. Fluoroquinolone antibiotics, such as gatifloxacin, have a distinct mode of action than aminoglycoside, macrolide, and tetracycline antibiotics. As a result, gatifloxacin may be effective against infections resistant to these antibiotics, while these drugs may be effective against gatifloxacin-resistant pathogens.There is no crossresistance between gatifloxacin and the medicines described above. Cross resistance between systemic gatifloxacin and various other fluoroquinolones has been documented. In vitro, gatifloxacin resistance arises by a series of mutations.
