Pharmaceutical precautions
Pharmacodynamic properties
Gentamicin is a broad spectrum bactericidal antibiotic, active against such organisms as Klebsiella and Pseudomonas. Gentamicin is particularly effective on rapidly multiplying organisms. Gentamycin is lethal to susceptible bacteria mainly by binding to bacterial ribosomes and impairing protein synthesis.
Pharmacokinetic particulars
The application of one or two drops to the eye enables the persistence of therapeutic levels for more than 6 hours.
