    Trivia questions: What is Erythromycin?


    Erythromycin class

    Erythromycin antibiotics are strictly macrolide antibiotics. They are fast bacteriostatic drugs, including erythromycin, mdicomycin, acetylspiramycin, and josamycin. Main treatments: aerobic Gram-positive bacteria, Legionella, Campylobacter, Chlamydia, Mycoplasma, certain anaerobic bacteria, Mycobacterium and Toxoplasma. Newer drugs, ie, new macrolides, include roxithromycin, azithromycin, and clarithromycin. The antibacterial spectrum and bacteriostatic effect of these drugs are similar to those of erythromycin, but the half-life is extended, which can reduce the number of administrations, reduce the dosage and reduce adverse reactions.

    Erythromycin mechanism of action

    Erythromycin showed antibacterial activity or inhibition of bacterial growth, especially at high concentrations. [30] by binding to the 50S subunit of the bacterial rRNA complex, it inhibits protein synthesis and subsequent structural and functional processes essential for life or replication. [30] erythromycin interferes with aminoacyl transport and prevents tRNA binding at a site of rRNA complex from transferring to P site of rRNA complex. Without this translocation, site a is still occupied, thus inhibiting the addition of the incoming tRNA and its linked amino acids to the new polypeptide chain. This will interfere with the production of functional proteins, which is the basis of this antibacterial effect.

    Erythromycin improves intestinal motility by binding to motilin, so it is a motilin receptor agonist, in addition to its antibacterial properties.

    Erythromycin ointment

    Erythromycin ointment is a commonly used topical drug and belongs to macrolide antibiotics. The main effect is suitable for purulent skin diseases, small area burns, infections and acne vulgaris. It should be noted that using erythromycin ointment is not effective for skin diseases caused by fungal infections.
    Erythromycin dosage: Topical topical. Take an appropriate amount of this product and apply it to the affected area twice a day.

    Erythromycin for acne

    Robimycin (oral erythromycin) is an antibiotic used to treat moderate to severe inflammatory acne or acne that isn't getting better with other treatments. Erythromycin is also used topically to treat acne. Besides acne, erythromycin is used to treat a wide variety of conditions, from ear infections to rosacea.

    Erythromycin for eyes

    Erythromycin eye ointment for bacterial infections. It is mainly used to treat bacterial external eye infections, trachoma and bacterial intraocular infections. For trachoma, conjunctivitis, keratitis, etc.

    Erythromycin for gastroparesis

    Erythromycin has an antibacterial effect and is often used to treat mild to moderate respiratory infections and skin and soft tissue infections. But little known is that erythromycin is also a motilin receptor agonist, which can promote gastric emptying and can be used to treat gastroparesis.

    Erythromycin side effects

    1. Gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, mid-upper abdominal pain, and loss of appetite may appear after administration, and the incidence is related to the size of the dose.
    2. Hepatic toxicity such as fatigue, jaundice, and abnormal liver function may occur after administration.
    3. Large doses (≥4g per day) may cause ototoxicity after administration to patients with liver and kidney disease and elderly patients. Mainly manifested as hearing loss. It may be related to the high blood concentration (> 12mg / L), and most of them can return to normal after stopping the drug.
    4. Allergic reactions such as drug fever, rash, and eosinophilia may occur after treatment, and the incidence is about 0.5% to 1%.
    5. A small number of patients occasionally have arrhythmia, oral or vaginal candidiasis, etc.
    6. In some patients, intravenous irritation or phlebitis may occur after intravenous administration.


    Erythromycin is mainly used in clinical practice for tonsillitis, scarlet fever, diphtheria and carriers, gonorrhea, listeriosis, and lower respiratory tract infections caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae. At the same time, it is also used as a veterinary antibiotic in dairy farming, which may cause erythromycin residue in milk. Ballya offers erythromycin rapid test kits, whose test results comply with EU standards. Not only is the operation simple, but the time is short and the accuracy is high. Not only that, Ballya also independently developed rapid test kits for various antibiotics. In the future, Ballya will put more effort into research.
