Feature and Benefits
 
1. PENSTREP L/A injection is a combination of Benzylpenicillin (Procaine Penicillin G and Benzathine Penicillin G) and Dihydrostreptomycin. Procaine Penicillin G and Benzathine Penicillin G have high sensitivity mostly against Gram-positive bacteria. Dihydrostreptomycin, an antibiotics from the aminoglycosides group, has a bactericidal action against mainly Gram-negative bacteria. The combination of Penicillin and Dihydrostreptomycin has a broader antibacterial spectrum. Therefore, it can be administered preferentially before the results of bacteriological inspection are obtained.
2. Benzathine Penicillin G and Procaine Penicillin G has low solubility, that is, is very slowly absorbed. So blood concentration can be maintained for a long time and therapeutical blood concentration is continued for 2~3 days with just one injection. The preparation also has a merit of being relatively more stable than other aqueous injectable suspensions.
