Feature and Benefits
Amikacin sulfate, a active ingredient of samu AMIKACIN injection, is a semi-synthetic aminoglycosides antibiotics derived from Kanamycin. Amikacin, like other aminoglycoside antibiotics, is a bactericidal agent that exerts its action at the level of bacterial ribosome. Amikacin has been shown to be effective against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, and many aminoglycoside-resistant strains due to its ability to resist degradation by aminoglycoside inactivating enzymes known to affect Gentamicin, Tobramycin and Kanamycin. Amikacin is a broad spectrum bactericidal antibiotic agent well absorbed following intravenous, subcutaneous or intramuscular injection and rapidly transmitted to skin and soft tissue, so it maintains a high therapeutic blood level. Amikacin has few side effects such as nephrotoxicity and ototoxicity.
