  • Pharmacological properties
  • Pharmacological properties

    Metronidazole belongs to the nitroimidazoles group and affects anaerobic bacteria (spore- and nonspore-forming), treponemes, amoebas, balantidia, and trichomonads. 

    Mode of action: the biochemical reduction of the metronidazole 5-nitro group by intracellular transport proteins of anaerobic microorganisms and protozoa. The reduced metronidazole 5-nitro group interacts with the DNA in the bacterial cell, inhibiting the synthesis of nucleic acids in it, and thus causing the death of the microorganism.

    When administered intramuscularly, the drug quickly penetrates the blood and tissues. It is excreted mainly with urine. 


  • Indications
