Descriptions

LP16294-8   Tobramycin
Tobramycin sulfate is an aminoglycoside antibiotic produced by Streptomyces tenebrarius used to treat various bacterial infections, particularly Gram-negative infections. It works by binding to a site on the bacterial ribosome, causing the genetic code to be misread. Like all aminoglycosides, tobramycin does not pass the gastro-intestinal tract, so for systemic use it can only be given intravenously or intramuscularly. This formulation for injection is branded Nebcin®. Patients with cystic fibrosis will often take an inhalational form (Tobi®) for suppression of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections. Tobramycin is also combined with dexamethasone as an ophthalmic solution (TobraDex®). Bausch Lomb Pharmaceuticals, Inc. makes a sterile Tobramycin Ophthalmic Solution (eye-drops) with a tobramycin concentration of 0.3%. In the USA it is available by prescription only.
