LP15010-9   Trimethoprim
Trimethoprim is a synthetic (man-made) antibiotic that interferes with the production of tetrahydrofolic acid, a chemical necessary in protein production. The drug inhibits the enzyme responsible for making tetrahydrofolic acid from dihydrofolic acid. Trimethoprim inhibits the bacterial enzyme more than the corresponding human enzyme, so it has less effect on the production of tetrahydrofolic acid by humans. It is effective against a wide variety of bacteria. Information is from MedicineNet.com, accessed 2006 10 16. Copyright Copyright © 1996-2008 MedicineNet, Inc. All rights reserved.
