Trivia questions: What is Gentamicin?


Gentamicin is one of the few thermostable antibiotics, and is therefore widely used in media configuration. China has independently developed a broad-spectrum antibiotic, which is one of the great scientific and technological achievements since the founding of New China.

Gentamicin antibiotic

An antibiotic used to treat many types of bacterial infections. May include bone infections, endocarditis, pelvic inflammatory disease, meningitis, pneumonia, urinary tract infections, and sepsis. Not effective for gonorrhea or chlamydia infection. It can be injected intravenously, injected into the muscle or used topically.

Gentamicin toxicity

Gentamicin toxicity can cause any of the following:
Kidney damage and kidney failure;
Nerve injury;
Ototoxicity damage to the ear, such as hearing loss, dizziness, or tinnitus (tinnitus)
Balance problem;
Memory, attention and fatigue issues;
Sternum (rebound vision).

Gentamicin sulfate

It is an aminoglycoside broad-spectrum antibiotic, which has antibacterial and bactericidal effects on a variety of Gram-negative and positive bacteria. It has a strong effect on Gram-negative bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Aerobacter pneumoniae, Pneumococcus, Salmonella, Escherichia coli and Proteus, and S. aureus.

Gentamicin mechanism of action

Gentamicin works by acting on ribosomes in bacteria, inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis, and destroying the integrity of bacterial cell membranes. Gentamicin can first pass through the outer membrane porin through passive diffusion, and then enter the cell through the cell membrane through the transport system. It does not reversibly bind to the isolated ribosomal 30S subunit, leading to the destruction of the A site and blocking bacterial proteins' synthesis.

Gentamicin uses

Gentamicin eye drops

Main ingredients: gentamicin sulfate;
Efficacy: For conjunctivitis, eyelid inflammation, meibomitis;
Gentamicin eye drops dose: Use before meals, 4 drops at a time, 3 times a day, one month as a course of treatment.

Gentamicin cream

This medication is used to treat minor skin infections (such as impetigo, folliculitis) or minor infections associated with certain skin conditions (such as eczema, psoriasis, minor burns / cuts / wounds). Gentamicin works by preventing the growth of certain bacteria. It belongs to a class of drugs called aminoglycoside antibiotics.
This antibiotic can only treat bacterial infections. It does not apply to viral or fungal infections. Unnecessary or excessive use of any antibiotic may cause its effectiveness to decrease.

Gentamicin dosage

The gentamicin dosage is very particular, and more or less can not achieve the desired effect, and even cause certain harm to the human body. The best way to use it is to follow your doctor's advice and don't use it blindly.

Gentamicin side effects

The main adverse reactions are:
Ototoxicity: manifested as hearing loss, tinnitus, ear fullness, severe cases can develop drug-induced deafness, and irreversible.
Renal toxicity: manifested as decreased urination frequency, decreased urine output, decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, etc. In severe cases, it can lead to renal failure and cannot be reversed.
Other rare adverse reactions are rash, fever, dyspnea, dizziness, fatigue, etc. The application of large doses can also cause edema. A small number of patients may have changes in liver function. Long-term use will lead to disturbance of the normal intestinal flora and teratogenic effects on the fetus.

Gentamicin allergy

Gentamicin allergic reactions often occur very quickly, and more than 90% of patients occur within 10 minutes after administration, and some individuals have severe shock before injection. Symptoms may include dizziness, dizziness, tinnitus, convulsions in the legs, rash, fever and generalized spasm, hematuria, a significant decrease in the number of urination or loss of appetite, extreme thirst, and instability.


Gentamicin began development in 1967, and was successfully identified at the end of 1969. It was named "gentamicin", which means to celebrate the "Nineth Congress" and to celebrate the greatness of the working class. Today, gentamicin has been widely used in dairy farming, and the situation of residual gentamicin in milk has become increasingly serious. The gentamicin rapid test kit independently developed by Ballya can effectively detect gentamicin residues in milk. The operation is simple, the time is short, and the accuracy is high, and the test results comply with EU standards. Ballya will do more in-depth research in this area in the future.
