Pharmachologic effect

Antibacterial agent of a wide spectrum of action, azalide, acts bacteriostatically. Linking to the 50S subunit of ribosomes, inhibits peptidranslokase at the stage of translation, suppresses protein synthesis, slows the growth and multiplication of bacteria, at high concentrations has a bactericidal effect. Effects on extracorporeal and intracellular pathogens.
