Contains the active ingredient : Roxithromycin which is an agent against bacterial infections (antibiotic) from the group of macrolides. It is a further development of the active ingredient erythromycin, which is also still used as an antibiotic. Here you can read everything you need to know about the effects and use of roxithromycin, side effects and interactions.
Just like animal and human cells, bacterial cells also have genetic material (DNA) that serves as a blueprint for the proteins that perform numerous tasks in the cell. Macrolide antibiotics such as roxithromycin inhibit so-called ribosomes, i.e. those complexes in the cell in which the DNA is translated into proteins. The growth and reproduction of the bacteria are inhibited.
Since the ribosomes of bacteria and humans differ greatly, roxithromycin can be used to precisely switch off the bacterial ribosome. In contrast, the antibiotic has comparatively few (side) effects on human cells.
After ingestion, two-thirds of the roxithromycin is quickly absorbed through the intestine into the blood , where it reaches the highest levels after two hours. The antibiotic gets into the lungs , skin and urinary tract particularly well . Roxithromycin also accumulates in immune cells that actively migrate to the site of the bacterial infection via the bloodstream.
