5. PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES Pharmacotherapeutic group: antibiotics for topical use, tetracycline and derivates ATCvet code: QD06AA02
5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties In vitro, chlortetracycline is primarily bacteriostatic. Chlortetracycline exerts its action by inhibiting the protein synthesis of the bacterial cell. In particular cell division and the formation of the cell wall are impaired. Chlortetracycline binds to receptors on the 30Ssubunit of the bacterial ribosome where they interfere with the binding of the aminoacyltransfer RNA to the acceptor site on the messenger RNA ribosome complex.
5.2 Pharmacokinetic particulars After cutaneous administration of chlortetracycline spray, absorption of chlortetracycline is negligible. Therefore the veterinary medicinal product will only have a local effect, no systemic effects are to be anticipated.
