Mode of Action
Clinton inhibits protein synthesis by reversibly binding to the 50 S Subunit of the ribosomal bock in the susceptible organism thus blocking the transpeptidation or translocation reaction resulting in stunted cell growth.
Clinton is used for the same purpose as Lincomycin but its activity against sensitive organisms is higher. Effective mainly against Gram Positive organisms and Anaerobic organisms.
Clinton can be used in the treatmenfof infections due to staphylococci, streptococci and Bacteroides fragilis.
Clinton penetrates the bones and is used successfully in the treatment of Acute and Chronic Osteomyelitis, Endocarditis, Meningitis, Pharyngitis, Sinusitis, Sprue and Reiter's disease etc.
Clinton is prescribed in Respiratory tract, Skin and Soft Tissue, Dental and nasopharyngeal infections.
Absorption and Fate
Clindamycin Phosphate in Clinton is biologically inactive but is rapidly hydrolyzed in blood to Clindamycin. When an equi. of 300mg of Clindamycin is injected intramuscularly every 8 hours, a mean peak concentration of 6 Micro gram per ml is achieved within 3 hours: 600mg every 12 hours gives peak concentration of 9 Micro gram per ml. When same doses are infused intravenously every 8 hours, peak concentration of 7 and 10 Micrograms per ml are achieved at the end of infusion.
