Vanogard 500mg Injection consists of the active constituent Vancomycin that is indicated for reducing the development of drug-resistant bacteria. It belongs to a family of medicines called Glycopeptide antibiotics. It is isolated from Amycolatopsis orientalis and is active against Gram-positive bacteria due to its significant molecular weight. The cell wall of gram positive bacteria is almost entirely made of peptidoglycan which is very thick.
Uses of Vanogard 500mg Injection:
- Elimination of infection-causing bacteria
- Treatment of infections of the bones, muscles, skin, lung and heart valves
- Prevention of potential infections of heart valves that is likely to occur after some types of surgery.
- Treatment of severe infections caused by staphylococcus in patients who have failed to respond to other antibiotics.
- Treatment of endocarditis caused by staphylococcus and diphtheroid bacteria
How Vanogard 500mg Injection Works:
Vanogard 500mg Injection binds to units of peptidoglycan present in the bacteria's cell wall. This weakens the peptidoglycan and the bacterial cell becomes more prone to division. Thus, the cell membrane is damaged and cell wall synthesis is also inhibited, ultimately resulting in the inhibition of the bacterial action.
Interaction with other drugs:
Inform your doctor about any medications you are taking or have taken before the treatment.
