Clinic significance

A bactericidal aminoglycoside antibiotic which inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by binding to ribosomes. Its natural anti-bacterial spectrum includes Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacilli, and methicillin-sensitive staphylococci. Must be administered parenterally (IM or IV). Eliminated (as the active substance) via the kidneys. Half-life = 2 to 4 hours in adults and 3 to 6 hours in new-borns and babies.It can have toxic effects in the kidneys and the inner ear but only at plasma concentrations well above the normal therapeutic range. Its therapeutic index is relatively low so monitoring residual levels and peak plasma concentrations is important. Residual levels show whether or not there is any accumulation of the drug in the kidneys or the inner ear and the peak concentration immediately after administration can be used to evaluate the bactericidal activity of the dose administered.
