Manufacturing Process:

As described in US Patent 2,931,798, Streptomyces kanamyceticus (K2-J) was first cultured in shake flasks in the following media: (a) 0.75% meat extract, 0.75% peptone, 0.3% NaCl, with 1.0% of starch, dextrin, maltose, glucose, lactose, sucrose or glycerol; or (b) 2.0% soybean meal, 0.05% KCl, 0.05% MgSO4 · 7H2O, 0.5% NaCl, 0.2% NaNO3, with 1.0% of starch, dextrin, maltose, glucose, lactose, sucrose or glycerol. The initial pH of all media was adjusted to 7.0. After 24 to 48 hours shaking in some cases the pH decreased to about 6.0 to 6.8, but from 72 to 120 hours the pH rose and became 7.5 to 8.6. The production of kanamycin was apparent after 48 hours and, depending on the media; the maximum production was found after 72 to 120 hours.

Clinical Use:

Kanamycin Sulfate was isolated in 1957 by Umezawaand coworkers from Streptomyces kanamyceticus. Its activity against mycobacteria and many intestinal bacteria, aswell as several pathogens that show resistance to other antibiotics,brought a great deal of attention to this antibiotic.As a result, kanamycin was tested and released for medicaluse in a very short time.
