T Bact Ointment efficiency

t bact ointment

T Bact Ointment is a topical antibiotic medication that is used to treat bacterial skin infections, including impetigo, folliculitis, boils, and other types of skin infections. The medication contains mupirocin, which is an antibiotic that works by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis and thus stopping the growth of bacteria.

In general, T Bact Ointment is considered highly effective for the treatment of bacterial skin infections. In clinical studies, mupirocin has been shown to be effective against a wide range of bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes, which are common causes of skin infections.

However, it is important to note that the effectiveness of T Bact Ointment may vary depending on the type and severity of the infection, as well as the age and overall health of the patient. Additionally, as with any medication, there may be some patients who do not respond well to the treatment or who experience side effects.

In summary, T Bact Ointment is considered an effective and safe treatment for bacterial skin infections, but it is important to follow the doctor's instructions and be aware of any side effects that may be experienced.

The dosage and duration of use of T Bact ointment depend on the response to the medication. The recommended dosage for use is to apply a small amount of T Bact ointment to cover the affected areas. This is done twice or thrice a day for a duration of 10 days.

Before applying the ointment, clean the affected area and dry it. After the application of T Bact ointment, gauze can be used to cover the affected area.

Chemical composition

The active ingredient in T Bact Cream is:

                        Mupirocin 2% of the total weight

Mupirocin also contains other pseudomonic acids including pseudomonic acid A, pseudomonic acid B, pseudomonic acid C, and Pseudomonic acid D.

Mechanism of Action (MOA)

T Bact ointment is an antibacterial effective against Gram-positive bacteria and a few gram-negative bacteria. At low concentrations, Mupirocin has bacteriostatic properties while at high concentrations Mupirocin has bactericidal activities.

T Bact ointment works by preventing the production of some proteins by the bacteria. It does this by binding to an enzyme Isoleucyl Transfer RNA-synthetase. When transfer RNA is not synthesized, proteins synthesis stops. Protein not being synthesized makes the bacteria to die as they no longer can grow resulting in healing effects of the ointment.

T Bact Cream active ingredient Mupirocin works in a unique way and has a unique structure. For these reasons, it does not show cross-resistance to other antibiotics that are clinically available. Thus the ointment has limited resistance.
