Active Ingredient

The effective antibiotic has an active ingredient Chloramphenicol. It is a semisynthetic, broad-spectrum antibiotic derived from Streptomyces Venezuela. It primarily shows bacteriostatic activity. This active component diffuses through the bacterial cell wall and reversibly binds to the bacterial subunit. This process of binding interferes with peptidyl transferase activity that prevents the transfer of amino acids to the growing peptide chains and blocks peptide bond formation. It leads to blockage of bacterial protein synthesis and impedes bacterial cell proliferation.


This Chloramphenicol composed antibiotic is used to treat various bacterial infections of the eyes. It should be used only in those serious infections in which other drugs are ineffective or contraindicated. Chloromycetin capsules are indicated for the treatment of surface ocular infections caused by chloramphenicol-susceptible micro-organisms. This medicine can be used to treat infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus, and Streptococcus, including Streptococcus pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, Haemophilus influenzae, Klebsiella/Enterobacter species, Moraxella lucunata, and Neisseria species.
