Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics

The active substance of the drug is the antibiotic levofloxacin, belonging to the group of fluoroquinolines. It promotes the inhibition of DNA-gyrase of microbes and bacteria, disrupting the synthesis of protein, resulting in the bacteria perishing. Glevo is effective in the treatment of infectious diseases that are caused by both gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms, including bacteria that are resistant to cephalosporins, penicillins and aminoglycosides.
Has a wide spectrum of action: Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis, Providencia rettgeri et stuartii, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter agglomerans, Acinetobacter calcoaceticus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Clostridium perfringens, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Acinetobacter baumannii, Klebsiella oxytoca, Enterococcus faecalis, Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Streptococcus agalactiae, Bordetella -pertussis, Viridans group streptococci, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Morganella morganii, Enterobacter cloacae, Serratia marcescens, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Citrobacter diversus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Citrobacter freundii, Enterobacter sakazakii, Legionella pneumonia, Haemophilus influenzae, Acinetobacter anitratus, Moraxella catarrhalis, Chlamydophila pneumoniae, Haemophilus parainfluenzae, Pseudomonas fluorescens.
Spirochetes are insensitive to the action of levofloxacin.
Absorbed by ingestion quickly and almost completely. On the speed and completeness of absorption, food intake is practically not affected. Bioavailability is 99%. The maximum concentration is observed in the blood after 1-2 hours.
It binds to plasma proteins by about 30-40%. High level of penetration into tissues and organs (bronchial mucosa, alveolar macrophages, urogenital system, lungs, polymorphonuclear leukocytes, sputum).
A small part of the substance is oxidized or deacetylated in the liver.
Of total clearance, renal clearance occupies about 70%. Half-life on average takes 6-8 hours. The body is excreted mainly with the help of kidneys. It is excreted in the urine by approximately 70% of the dose during the day (unchanged), 87% of the dose is two days, less than 4% is excreted within three days with feces.
