Antimicrobic microbicide of a broad spectrum of activity.
The combined drug, contains co-trimoxazole – mix of Trimethoprimum and sulfamethoxazole (1:5). The effect is connected with the dual blocking action of drug on metabolism of bacteria. Sulfamethoxazole breaks synthesis of dihydrofolic acid in bacterial cells, and Trimethoprimum interferes with transformation of dihydrofolic acid into tetrahydrofolic. High concentration of drug is created in tissues of lungs, kidneys, a prostate, in cerebrospinal fluid, bile, bones.
