Chemical Properties White Solid

antibacterial, inhibits protein synthesis
Clindamycin hydrochloride is a salt of clindamycin, a semi-synthetic lincosamide. The hydrochloride salt forms at the basic N-ethylproline moiety and is the preferred pharmaceutical formulation. Like other members of the lincosamide family, clindamycin is a broad spectrum antibiotic with activity against anaerobic bacteria and protozoans. Clindamycin hydrochloride acts by binding to the 23S ribosomal subunit, blocking protein synthesis. Clindamycin hydrochloride has been extensively studied with over 8,000 literature citations.
Labelled Clindamycin. Semi-synthetic antibiotic prepared from Lincomycin;Labeled Clindamycin, intended for use as an internal standard for the quantification of Clindamycin by GC- or LC-mass spectrometry.
Therapeutic Function Antibacterial

Cleocin hydrochloride Other Information

Clindamycin is recommended for the treatment of a widevariety of upper respiratory, skin, and tissue infections causedby susceptible bacteria. Its activity against streptococci,staphylococci, and pneumococci is indisputably high, and it isone of the most potent agents available against somenon–spore-forming anaerobic bacteria, the Bacteroides particular.
