Pharmacological properties

Streptomycin sulfate – an aminoglycoside antibiotic, which has a wide spectrum of antimicrobial (bactericidal) action. The drug is active against Mycobacterium tuberculosis, most of the gram-negative bacteria (Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Yersinia spp., Klebsiella spp., Including Klebsiella pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Neisseria meningitidis, Yersinia pestis, Francisella tularensis, Brucella spp.) and some gram-positive microorganisms (Staphylococcus spp., Corynebacterium diphtheriae). Less active drug against Streptococcus spp. (including Streptococcus pneumoniae), Enterobacter spp. Streptomycin is inactive relative to anaerobic bacteria, Spirochaetaceae, Rickettsia spp., Proteus spp., Pseudomonas aeroginosa. The bactericidal action of the drug is detected as a result of binding to the 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome, which in the future leads to suppression of protein synthesis in microorganisms.
