Each gm contains : Colistin Sulphate : 100 mg (Eq. to Colistin) Excepients : Q.S.
Colistin (polymyxin E) is a polymyxin antibiotic. Colistin is polycationic and has both hydrophilic and lipophilic moieties. These poly-cationic regions interact with the bacterial outer membrane (displacing bacterial counter ions in the lipopolysaccharide Hydrophobic/hydrophilic) just like a detergent, solubilizing the membrane in an aqueous environment. This effect is bactericidal even in an isosmolaric environment.Colistin has been effective in treating infections caused by Pseudomonas, Escherichiacoli, and Hemophillus , Salmonella , Klebsiella
