NITROXOLINE possesses a wide range of antimicrobic action. Are sensitive to it miogy gram-positive (strepto-and staphylococcus, a diphtheritic stick, etc.) and gram-negative (colibacillus, salmonellas, shigellas, vulgar proteas, a pyocyanic stick, etc.) microorganisms, and also nek-ry fungi (e.g., Candida albicans).

The minimum bacteriostatic concentration of N. for the majority of activators make from 1 to 5 mkg/m of l, and for a pyocyanic stick — apprx. 40 mkg/ml.

Unlike other derivatives 8 oxyquinolines — Enteroseptolum (see), Chiniofonum (see) — N. is well soaked up from went. - kish. a path and, practically without being metabolized, it is removed in not changed look through kidneys. In this regard in urine drug collects in the concentration (to 100 mkg/ml and above) considerably exceeding minimum bacteriostatic for all microorganisms, sensitive to it.

N. apply at acute and hron, inf. diseases of kidneys and urine of the removing ways (pyelonephritis, cystitis, prostatitis, an urethritis, etc.) caused by microflora, sensitive to it, and also for prevention of infections after kidney and urinary tract operations.
