chloramphenicol: [ klor″am-fen´ĭ-kol ] a broad-spectrum antibiotic with specific therapeutic activity against rickettsiae and many different bacteria. Side effects include serious, even fatal, blood dyscrasias in certain patients. Frequent blood tests are recommended during therapy. Mode of action: Inhibition of protein synthesis, Chloramphenicol irreversibly binds to a receptor site on the 50S subunit of the bacterial ribosome, inhibiting peptidyl transferase. This inhibition consequently results to the prevention of amino acid transfer to growing peptide chains, ultimately leading to inhibition of protein formation.

Chloramphenicol is a bacteriostatic, time-dependent acetamide antibiotic with a very broad spectrum of activity, including Gram-positive and Gram-negative aerobes, and anaerobes. Plasmid-mediated resistance to chloramphenicol develops in.

Bhaskar Das, Sanjukta Patra, in Nanostructures for Antimicrobial Therapy, Chloramphenicol inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by interfering with the transfer of activated amino acids from soluble RNA to ribosomes.
It is excreted in the urine, predominantly as metabolically inactive metabolites. Chloramphenicol is contraindicated in individuals with a history of previous hypersensitivity and/or toxic reaction to it. This book is a summary of the clinical experience with one of the most widely used and most potent antibiotics, Chloromycetin.
Written by two well-known authorities in the field of antibiotic chemotherapy, it is a lucid and eminently objective evaluation of the clinical status of this antibiotic.

Chloramphenicol is not teratogenic in either humans or rodents. Breastfeeding Safety: There are no adequate reports or well-controlled studies in nursing women. Chloramphenicol enters human breast milk, but the levels achieved appear low, ranging from to mg/L in women taking mg PO qid, and – mg/L in women taking mg.
Chloramphenicol is a semisynthetic, broad-spectrum antibiotic derived from Streptomyces venequelae with primarily bacteriostatic activity. Chloramphenicol diffuses through the bacterial cell wall and reversibly binds to the bacterial 50S ribosomal subunit.
The binding interferes with peptidyl transferase activity, thereby prevents transfer of. Chloromycetin; Sopamycetin; Descriptions. Chloramphenicol belongs to the family of medicines called antibiotics. Chloramphenicol otic drops are used to treat infections of the ear canal.
This medicine may be used alone or with other medicines that are taken by mouth for ear canal infections. Abstract. Chloramphenicol is a broad-spectrum antibiotic which acts chiefly as a bacteriostatic agent. Chloramphenicol was isolated in from Streptomyces afterwards, its structure was elucidated and it became the first antibiotic to be synthesized by chemical means (Controulis et al., ).The chemical structure of chloramphenicol is given in Fig.
1.Chloramphenicol is used in a wide variety of infections in dogs, cats, and horses. Unfortunately, a major drawback to chloramphenicol is a rare but very serious health risk for humans who handle this drug.
See precautions. Chloramphenicol is FDA approved for use in .Chloramphenicol should only be used for serious infections in which other medicines do not work.
