Chlortetracyclin Indication

For the treatment of infections and to treat acne. It may also be used to treat urinary tract infections, gum disease, and other bacterial infections such as gonorrhea and chlamydia.

It is also effective against Yersinia pestis and malaria and is also prescribed for the treatment of Lyme disease.

Chlortetracyclin Pharmacology

Lymecycline is a tetracycline broad-spectrum antibiotic. It is approximately 5000 times more soluble than tetracycline base and is unique amongst tetracyclines in that it is absorbed by the "active transport" process across the intestinal wall, making use of the same fast and efficient mechanism by which carbohydrates are absorbed. It inhibits cell growth by inhibiting translation.

Chlortetracyclin Absorption

Absorption is fast and efficient. Bioavailability is 100% following oral administration.
