Each vial contains:

Kanamycin  BP – 1,0 g.

Kanamycin (also known as kanamycin A) is an aminoglycoside bacteriocidal antibiotic, produced by  “Streptomyces kanamyceticus”.

Kanamycin is a bactericidal antibiotic which acts by inhibiting the synthesis of protein in susceptible microorganisms.

Kanamycin interacts with the 30S subunit of prokaryotic ribosomes. It induces substantial amounts of mistranslation and indirectly inhibits translocation during protein synthesis.

Kanamycin injection is indicated in the shortterm treatment of serious infections caused by susceptible strains of the designated microorganisms.

To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of Kanamycin injection and other antibacterial drugs, Kanamycin injection should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria.
