- Oral / IV / PRMetronidazoleFlagyl
- Mechanism of Action
- Broken down into its active form selectively by anaerobic and protozoal cells. Binds to and disrupts DNA, resulting in DNA degradation and cell death.
- Good anaerobic cover (e.g. Clostridium spp, Bacteroides fragilis), with additional activity against protozoa such as Trichomonas vagilanis, Giardia lamblia and Entamoeba histolytica.
