LP15010-9   Trimethoprim
A pyrimidine inhibitor of dihydrofolate reductase, it is an antibacterial related to PYRIMETHAMINE. The interference with folic acid metabolism may cause a depression of hematopoiesis. It is potentiated by SULFONAMIDES and the TRIMETHOPRIM-SULFAMETHOXAZOLE COMBINATION is the form most often used. It is sometimes used alone as an antimalarial. TRIMETHOPRIM RESISTANCE has been reported. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006

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.
