Minocin is one of the most effective tetracycline antibiotics which is widely used within the territory of the USA, Canada, and countries of the European Union. It contains an active ingredient Minocycline which has been synthesized in 1967 and has a broad-spectrum pharmacological action.


Unlike classical tetracycline, Minocin can act as to meningococcus. Minocin is a tetracycline №1 due to its pharmacological action. Almost any infectious disease can be treated with the help of this antibiotic but it is necessary to be careful because resistance is quickly developed and a prolonged treatment will not do.


As other tetracyclines, Minocin provides a bacteriostatic action. It penetrates inside the cells of bacteria and prevents their development by means of the inhibition of protein synthesis.


The advantage of Minocin is a light anti-inflammatory action, and therefore it is actively used during infectious inflammatory diseases of vessels including rheumatic arthritis.


Minocin is indicated during such diseases as pneumonia, urethritis, bronchitis, pharyngitis, sinusitis, otitis, acne, cholecystitis, pyelonephritis, intestine infections, syphilis, trachoma, purulent infections of the skin, and others.
