Mupirocin 2.0% w/w
Water soluble base q.s.
CHEMISTRY: 9 - 4 - [5S - (2S,3S - epoxy - 5S - hydroxy - 4S - methylhexyl) - 3R,4R - dihydroxytetrahydropyran - 2S - yl] - 3 - methylbut - 2(E) - enoyloxy - nonanoic acid.
Mupirocin is a chemical entity produced by fermentation of the organism Pseudomonas fluorescens. Mupirocin inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by reversibly and specifically binding to bacterial isoleucyl transfer-RNA synthetase. Due to this mode of action, mupirocin shows no cross resistance with chloramphenicol, erythromycin, gentamicin, lincomycin, neomycin, novobiocin, penicillin, streptomycin, and tetracycline. Mupirocin is an antimicrobial agent that inhibits the growth of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.
Bacteria susceptible to the action of mupirocin in vitro include the aerobic isolates of Staphylococcus aureus (including methicillin-resistant strains and β-lactamase-producing strains), Staphylococcus intermedius, Staphylococcus epidermidis, other coagulase positive or negative Staphylococci, α-hemolytic Streptococci, β group A Streptococci (including S. pyogenes), other β Streptococci (including S. agalactiae), group D Streptococci (including S. faecalis and S. faecium), group Viridans Streptococci, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Corynebacterium hofmanii, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Proteus vulgaris, Enterobacter cloacae, Enterobacter aerogenes, Citrobacter freundii, Hemophilus influenzae (including β-lactamase-producing strains), Neisseria gonorrheae(including β-lactamase-producing strains), Neisseria meningitidis, Branhamella catarrhalis and Pasteurella multocida, and the anaerobic isolates of Peptostreptococcus anaerobius, Clostridium difficile, and Clostridium sporogenes.
