Pharmacodynamics: Erythromycin is a kind of macrolide antibiotics with similar mechanism as penicillin but has a broader spectrum. The Gram-negative bacteria erythromycin is sensitive to are Staphylococcus (including MRSA), Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus, Bacillus anthracis, Erysipelas, Listeria monocytogenes, Clostridium, and clostridium chauvoei. The Gram-positive bacteria erythromycin is sensitive to are Haemophilus influenza, Meningococcus, Brucella, and Pasteurella. Other than these, erythromycin is also effective against Campylobacter, Mycoplasma, chlamydia, Rickettsia, leptospiral. Erythromycin thiocyanate has a better antibacterial activity in basic environment. If the pH value increases from 5.5 to 8.5, the antibacterial activity increases.
Erythromycin base and stearates can be easily degraded by gastric acid. The bioavailability can be determined by erythromycin’s forms and dosage kinds, the acidity of the gastrointestinal tract, and the amount of food in gastrointestinal tract. With better absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, the drug can be dispersed quickly throughout the tissue and fluid but not to the cerebrospinal fluid. The drug’s binding percentage with plasma cells is 73%~81%. Small amount of erythromycin can be digested in liver forming N- methylerythromycin and discharged through bile. Only 2%~5% of the original form of drug is dispersed through urine.
