Oflomelide is a combined antimicrobial agent for external use.
Release form and composition
The dosage form of Oflomelid is a white or almost white ointment for external use (in aluminum tubes and orange glass jars sealed with plastic lids, 30, 50 and 100 g each, in polymer cans with first opening control, 200 and 400 g each; each tube / jar in cardboard box; packaging for hospitals: polymer jars with first opening control, 200 and 400 g each, plastic jars with a screw cap 1000 g each, orange glass jars of 1000 and 2000 g sealed with plastic lids).
Content of active substances in 100 g of ointment:
- dioxomethyltetrahydropyrimidine (methyluracil) - 4 g;
- lidocaine hydrochloride monohydrate - 3 g (in terms of lidocaine hydrochloride);
- ofloxacin - 1 g
Additional components: macrogol-1500 (low molecular weight polyethylene glycol-1500, polyethylene oxide-1500), propyl parahydroxybenzoate (nipazole or propyl paraben), methyl parahydroxybenzoate (nipagin or methyl paraben), propylene glycol, macrogol-400 (low molecular weight polyethylene), polyethylene 400
Oflomelide is a combined preparation with antimicrobial, local anesthetic, anti-inflammatory and regenerating action.
The hydrophilic (water-soluble) and hyperosmolar base of the ointment is a mixture of polyethylene oxides (polyethylene glycols) with a molecular weight of 400 and 1500 (PEO-400 and PEO-1500 or PEG-400 and PEG-1500). It provides moisture-absorbing (dehydrating) and osmotic effect of the drug on tissues, 20 times stronger than sodium chloride solution 10%, lasting up to 18–20 hours.
The active substances of the drug are ofloxacin, methyluracil and lidocaine.
It is an antimicrobial agent from the group of fluoroquinolones, has a wide spectrum of action. It has a bactericidal effect due to the blockade in bacterial cells of the enzyme DNA gyrase, which is necessary for transcription, replication, recombination and repair of bacterial DNA. Due to the inhibition of this enzyme, bacterial DNA unwinds and destabilizes, which leads to the death of the microbial cell.
The most sensitive (minimal inhibitory concentration <0.5 mg / l) to ofloxacin are the following microorganisms:
- gram-negative aerobes: Citrobacter spp. (including freundii), Campylobacter jejuni, Bordetella spp., Aeromonas hydrophila, Brucella spp., Vibrio spp. (including V. cholerae, V. parahaemolyticus), Salmonella spp., Yersinia spp. (including Y. enterocolitica), Serratia (including S. marcescens), Providencia spp., Shigella spp. (including S. sonnei), Enterobacter spp. [including Enterobacter aerogenes, Enterobacter cloacae, Klebsiella spp. (including K. pneumonia), Plesiomonas spp., Haemophilus parainfluenzae, Haemophilus influenzae, Neisseria meningitides, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Morganella morganii, Proteus spp. (P. mirabilis, indole + and indole - P. vulgaris), Haemophilus ducreyi, Escherichia coli, Moraxella (Branhamella) catarrhalis];
- gram-positive aerobes: Staphylococcus aureus methi-S (methicillin-sensitive strains), Staphylococcus coagulase negative (coagulase-negative staphylococci: S. haemolyticus, S. saprophyticus, S. hominis, S. epidermidis, etc.);
- anaerobes: Helicobacter pylori, Clostridium perfringens, Propionibacterium acnes;
- others: Mycoplasma spp. (including hominis), Legionella spp., Chlamydia trachomatis.
The following microorganisms are moderately sensitive to ofloxacin: Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Acinetobacter spp. (including A. calcoaceticus), Chlamydia psittaci, Bacteroides fragilis, Mycobacterium leprae, Gardnerella vaginalis, Bacteroides urealyticus, Enterococcus faecalis, Ureaplasma urealyticum, penicillin-sensitive gram-positive strains of anaerobic s. (including S. pneumoniae, S. pyogenes, S. viridans), Pseudomonas spp. (including P. aeruginosa), Peptostreptococcus spp., Peptococcus spp.).
The following microorganisms are resistant (minimum inhibitory concentration> 1 mg / l) to the effects of ofloxacin: most strains of Enterococcus spp., Treponema pallidum, Acinetobacter baumannii, Nocardia spp. (including N. asteroids), Listeria monocytogenes, methicillin-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus spp. (Staphylococci methi-R).
It stimulates tissue repair. Improves the process of cell regeneration in wounds by accelerating growth, tissue granulation maturation and epithelialization.
It is an anesthetic, the mechanism of action of which is due to the blockade of Na + -channels, due to which the generation of impulses in the endings of sensitive neurons and the conduction of impulses along nerve fibers is prevented.
When applied externally, lidocaine dilates blood vessels, while it does not have a local irritating effect.
Indications for use
Oflomelid ointment is used to treat infected wounds of various origins and localization, which are in the first phase of the wound process (purulent-necrotic).
So, the drug is prescribed in the following cases: trophic ulcers, bedsores, infected burns of II-IV degrees, post-traumatic and postoperative fistulas and wounds, as well as wounds after opening phlegmon or abscesses, after surgical treatment of hydradenitis, lipomas, carbuncles, suppurating atheromas, abscessing boils and etc.
