Amikacin sulfate (Synonyms: BAY 41-6551 sulfate)

Cat. No.: HY-107813
Handling Instructions

Amikacin sulfate (BAY 41-6551 sulfate) is an aminoglycoside antibiotic and a semisynthetic analog of kanamycin. Amikacin sulfate is bactericidal, acting directly on the 30S and 50S bacerial ribosomal subunits to inhibit protein synthesis. Amikacin sulfate is very active against most Gram-negative bacteria including gentamicin- and tobramycin-resistant strains. Amikacin sulfate also inhibits the infections caused by susceptible Nocardia and nontuberculous mycobacteria.

Description

Amikacin sulfate (BAY 41-6551 sulfate) is an aminoglycoside antibiotic and a semisynthetic analog of kanamycin. Amikacin sulfate is bactericidal, acting directly on the 30S and 50S bacerial ribosomal subunits to inhibit protein synthesis. Amikacin sulfate is very active against most Gram-negative bacteria including gentamicin- and tobramycin-resistant strains. Amikacin sulfate also inhibits the infections caused by susceptible Nocardia and nontuberculous mycobacteria[1][2].

In Vitro

Amikacin offers definite advantages for treating infections caused by organisms resistant to other aminoglycosides. Amikaci is affected by relatively few arninoglycoside-modifying enzymes. Amikacin is useful in the treatment of infections caused by Nocardia asteroides, Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare, and certain species of "rapid-growing" mycobacteria (that is, M. chelonae and M. fortuitumi)[1].
Amikacin (100-1500 μM) causes a reliable dose-dependent loss of lateral line zebrafish hair cells with a LD50 value of 453 μM[3].

In Vivo

Amikacin (320 mg/kg; subcutaneous injection; daily; for 10 days; male Fischer rats) treatment increases the chance of serious hearing loss in rats in vivo[3].

Animal Model: Male Fischer 344 rats (40-50-day-old)[3]
Dosage: 320 mg/kg
Administration: Subcutaneous injection; daily; for 10 days
Result: Induced hearing loss in rats.
