Neofloxin Eye& Ear Drops
(Neofloxin) ciprofloxacin has cidal and inhibitory activities against bacteria which result from an interference with DNA gyrase, an enzyme needed by the bacterium for the synthesis of DNA. Thus, vital information from the bacterial chromosomes cannot be transcribed, which causes a break-down of bacterial metabolism.
Ciprofloxacin has a very high in vitro activity against almost all gram negative microorganisms including Pseudomonas aeruginosa. It is also effective against gram positive bacteria, such as Staphylococci and Streptococci. Anaerobes are in general less susceptible.
Topical ocular administration of ciprofloxacin to immature animals did not cause any arthropathy and there is no evidence that the ophthalmic dosage form has any effect on the weight bearing points.
Neofloxin Ophthalmic Solution is indicated for the treatment of different types of eye and ear infections.
