    Doxycycline (as Hyclate)

    About

    The main mechanism of action of doxycycline is on protein synthesis. Doxycycline passes directly through the lipid bilayer of the bacterial cell wall and an energy dependent active transport system pumps the drug through the inner cytoplasmic membrane. Once inside the cell doxycycline inhibits protein synthesis by binding to 30S ribosomes and prevents the addition of amino acids to the growing peptide chain. Doxycycline will impair protein synthesis in mammalian cells at very high concentrations but these cells lack the active transport system found in bacteria.

    Indication

    It is used to treat a wide range of infections caused by bacteria, these include: • Chest, lung or nasal infections e.g. bronchitis, pneumonia, sinusitis • Infections of the kidneys and bladder e.g. cystitis, urethritis • Infections of the skin such as acne • Eye infections • Sexually transmitted diseases e.g. gonorrhoea, syphilis, chlamydia • Rickettsial infections such as Q fever or fevers associated with louse or tick bites • Malaria, when chloroquine is not effective • Other infections such as cholera, brucellosis, leptospirosis and psittacosisDosage

    According to severity of infection.
