Nitrofurazolidone Pharmacology

Furoxone has a broad antibacterial spectrum covering the majority of gastrointestinal tract pathogens including E. coli, staphylococci, Salmonella, Shigella, Proteus, Aerobacter aerogenes, Vibrio cholerae and Giardia lamblia. Its bactericidal activity is based upon its interference with DNA replication and protein production; this antimicrobial action minimizes the development of resistant organisms.

Nitrofurazolidone Absorption

Radiolabeled drug studies indicate that furazolidone is well absorbed following oral administration

Nitrofurazolidone side effects and Toxicity
