PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

Doxycycline is a broad spectrum antibiotic with a bacteriostatic or bacteriocidal action depending on the dose used. It has excellentáabsorption and tissue penetration, superior to most other tetracyclines. It is active against both Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, rickettsiae, mycoplasmas, chlamydia, actinomyces and some protozoa.

Colistin is a bactericidal antibiotic active against Gram-negative bacteria (eg. E. coli, Salmonella, Pseudomonas). There is very low occurence of resistance.áThe absorption from the gastro-intestinal tract is poor, resulting in higháconcentrations in the intestines for treatment of bowel infections.

The association of both antibiotics shows excellent activity against systemic infections, as well as against gastro-intestinal infections. Therefore, DOXYCOL isáespecially recommended for mass medication under circumstances that need a broad prophylactic or metaphylactic approach (eg. stress situations).
