2 Pharmacological properties 

2.1 Amoxicillin is a semisynthetic antibiotic from the penicillin group. It has a wide spectrum of bactericidal activity against Gram-positive (Actinomyces spp., Bacillus anthracis., Clostridium spp., Corynebacterium spp., Erysipelothrix rhusiopathrix rhusiopathiae., Listeria monocytoqenes. Staphilococecus spp.,) And Gram-negative microorganisms (Actinobacillus spp., Bordetella bronchiseptica, E . coli, Salmonella spp., Fusobacterium spp., Haemophilus spp., Moraxella spp., Pasteurella spp., Proteus mirobillis). The drug does not affect the penicillinase-forming strains of microorganisms from the genera Klebsiella and EnterobakterYu and also Pseudomonas.

2.2 Amoxicillin interferes with the synthesis of the cell membrane of the bacterium by inhibiting the enzymes of transpeptidase and carboxypeptidase and causing a disturbance in the osmotic balance, which leads to the death of the bacterium at the growth stage. The oil filler, which is part of the preparation, gradually releases micronized amoxicillin into the blood, thereby ensuring a prolonged action of the antibiotic.

2.3 In case of parenteral use, the antibiotic is well absorbed into the blood from the injection site and penetrates into all organs and tissues of the body. The maximum concentration in the blood plasma is achieved 1-2 hours after the administration of the drug and remains at the therapeutic level for 48 hours. Amoxicillin is practically not metabolized. It is excreted from the body mainly with urine, to a lesser extent with milk and bile.
