IndicationFor the treatment of sinus and lung infections such as sinusitis, pneumonia, and secondary infections in chronic bronchitis. Also for the treatment of bacterial conjunctivitis (pinkeye).
PharmacologyMoxifloxacin is a quinolone/fluoroquinolone antibiotic. Moxifloxacin can be used to treat infections caused by the following bacteria: Aerobic Gram-positive microorganisms: <i>Corynebacterium</i> species, <i>Micrococcus luteus</i>, <i>Staphylococcus aureus</i>, <i>Staphylococcus epidermidis</i>, <i>Staphylococcus haemolyticus</i>, <i>Staphylococcus hominis</i>, <i>Staphylococcus warneri</i>, <i>Streptococcus pneumoniae</i>, and <i>Streptococcus viridans</i> group. Aerobic Gram-negative microorganisms: <i>Acinetobacter lwoffii</i>, <i>Haemophilus influenzae</i>, and <i>Haemophilus parainfluenzae</i>. Other microorganisms: <i>Chlamydia trachomatis</i>.<br/>Moxifloxacin is bactericidal and its mode of action depends on blocking of bacterial DNA replication by binding itself to an enzyme called DNA gyrase, which allows the untwisting required to replicate one DNA double helix into two. Notably the drug has 100 times higher affinity for bacterial DNA gyrase than for mammalian. Moxifloxacin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is active against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
Mechanism of actionThe bactericidal action of moxifloxacin results from inhibition of the enzymes topoisomerase II (DNA gyrase) and topoisomerase IV. DNA gyrase is an essential enzyme that is involved in the replication, transcription and repair of bacterial DNA. Topoisomerase IV is an enzyme known to play a key role in the partitioning of the chromosomal DNA during bacterial cell division.
