Penikanix® is for treatment of infections caused by bacteria sensitive to Penicillin or Kanamycin such as omphalitis, arthritis, gastrointestinal infections, respiratory tract infections, listeriosis, meningitis, mastitis, urogenital tract infection, anthrax, tetanus, malignant edema, botulism, strangles, gas gangrene, foot rot, leptospirosis, salmonellosis, actinomycosis, preoperative treatments and the control of secondary bacterial invaders in disease of viral origin.
Mechanism of action:
Penicillin is an antibiotic of the ß-lactam class and kanamycin belongs to the aminoglycosides. Penicillin acts by interfering with the formation of the bacteria cell wall while it is growing and weakens the cell wall and kills the bacteria. Penicillin G is active against many gram-positive and a limited number of gram-negative bacteria however not active against the penicillinase-producing bacteria. Aminoglycosides display bactericidal activity against most gram-negative bacteria, but not against gram-negative anaerobes and most gram-positive bacteria. This bactericidal activity is done by inhibiting protein synthesis. The combination of penicillin G procaine and Kanamycin acts synergistically and it is active against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.
