Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Amikacin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic used to treat different types of bacterial infections. Amikacin works by binding to the bacterial 30S ribosomal subunit, causing misreading of mRNA and leaving the bacterium unable to synthesize proteins vital to its growth. Amikacin may be administered once or twice a day but must be given by the intravenous or intramuscular route. There is no oral form available as amikacin is not absorbed orally. In people with kidney failure, dosage must be adjusted according to the creatinine clearance, usually by reducing the dosing frequency.show more
