PZA Indication

For the treatment of patients (>=12 years of age) with travelers' diarrhea caused by noninvasive strains of Escherichia coli.

PZA Pharmacology

Rifaximin is a structural analog of rifampin and non-systemic, gastrointestinal site-specific antibiotic. Rifaximin acts by inhibiting bacterial ribonucleic acid (RNA) synthesis. While an increase in pulmonary hydrogen excretion is evident in diverticular disease, the therapeutic effect of rifaximin does not appear to be due to a persistent correction of this alteration and the drug appears to cause no significant imbalance in the intestinal ecosystem.

PZA Absorption

Low absorption in both the fasting state and when administered within 30 minutes of a high-fat breakfast.
