Antibacterials

Bactericidal antibacterials inhibit bacterial growth and proliferation.

Ciprofloxacin (Cipro)

Ciprofloxacin is a member of the fluoroquinolone family of synthetic, broad-spectrum antibacterials. It contains a piperazine moiety responsible for antipseudomonal activity. Ciprofloxacin interferes with DNA gyrase normally needed for synthesis of bacterial DNA.
