What is Tetracycline?
Antibiotic Tetracycline is a drug that is part of the tetracycline group. The group of tetracyclines and their derivatives (including semi-synthetic ones) has a little more than 262 pharmacological preparations and almost 40 names. They are united by a chemical structure: a condensed 4-row system. The commonality of the structure causes a similar antimicrobial effect on the human body and the mechanism of influence.
The drug destroys gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Tetracycline has been widely used as a drug for the treatment of various purulent skin diseases (including furunculosis, acne), inflammatory processes of the respiratory tract (tonsillitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, etc.) and the genitourinary system (gonorrhea, syphilis, etc. )

Tetracycline is active against streptococci, staphylococci, brucella, bartonella and many other bacteria. The medicine fights against chlamydia, clostridia, bacilli, treponema and other pathogenic microorganisms.
Tetracycline has a bacteriostatic effect on pathogenic microorganisms. Once in the body, tetracycline blocks protein synthesis by a bacterial cell, as a result of which the transmission of genetic information during its division is disrupted.
