Concentrate for the preparation of solution for infusion, solution for infusion, solution for infusions [in sodium chloride solution 0.9%], injection, tablets, coated tablets, tablets of prolonged action, coated.

Quintor - Pharmacological action

Quintor is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent, a derivative of fluoroquinolone that suppresses bacterial DNA gyrase (topoisomerases II and IV, responsible for the process of supercoiling the chromosomal DNA around the nuclear RNA, which is necessary for reading the genetic information), violates DNA synthesis, growth and division of bacteria ; causes significant morphological changes (including the cell wall and membranes) and the rapid death of the bacterial cell.

Quintor acts bactericidal on gram-negative organisms during rest and division (because it affects not only the DNA-gyrase, but also causes lysis of the cell wall), and gram-positive microorganisms only during the fission period. Low toxicity for macroorganism cells is explained by the absence of DNA-gyrase in them.

Against the background of taking ciprofloxacin, there is no parallel development of resistance to other actitobiotics that do not belong to the group of inhibitors of gyrase, which makes it highly effective against bacteria that are resistant, for example to aminoglycosides, penicillins, cephalosporins, tetracyclines and many other antibiotics.

Gram-negative aerobic bacteria are sensitive to ciprofloxacin: enterobacteria (Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Citrobacter spp., Klebsiella spp., Enterobacter spp., Proteus mirabilis, Proteus vulgaris, Serratia marcescens, Hafnia alvei, Edwardsiella tarda, Providencia spp. , Morganella morganii, Vibrio spp., Yersinia spp.), Other gram-negative bacteria (Haemophilus spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Moraxella catarrhalis, Aeromonas spp., Pasteurella multocida, Plesiomonas shigelloides, Campylobacter jejuni, Neisseria spp.), Some intracellular pathogens - Legionella pneumophila, Brucella spp., Chlamydia trachomatis, Listeria monocytogenes, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycobacterium kansasii, Corynebacterium diphtheriae; Gram-positive aerobic bacteria: Staphylococcus spp. (Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus haemolyticus, Staphylococcus hominis, Staphylococcus saprophyticus), Streptococcus spp. (Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus agalactiae).

The majority of staphylococci, resistant to methicillin, are resistant to ciprofloxacin. The sensitivity of Streptococcus pneumoniae, Enterococcus faecalis, Mycobacterium avium (located intracellularly) is moderate (their suppression requires high concentrations).

Quintor is resistant to the preparation: Bacteroides fragilis, Pseudomonas cepacia, Pseudomonas maltophilia, Ureaplasma urealyticum, Clostridium difficile, Nocardia asteroides. Not effective against Treponema pallidum. Resistance develops very slowly, since on the one hand, after the action of ciprofloxacin, there are practically no persistent microorganisms, and on the other hand bacterial cells do not have enzymes that inactivate it.

Treatment should continue for at least 3 days after the normalization of body temperature or the disappearance of clinical symptoms. At the glomerular filtration rate (CK 31-60 ml / min / 1.73 m2 or serum creatinine concentration from 1.4 to 1.9 mg / 100 ml), the maximum daily dose is 1 g.

In patients with immunodeficiency treatment is carried out throughout the neutropenia period. Treatment should be conducted for at least 3 days after the normalization of body temperature or the disappearance of clinical symptoms. At the glomerular filtration rate (CK 31-60 ml / min / 1.73 m2 or serum creatinine concentration from 1.4 to 1.9 mg / 100 ml) the maximum daily dose is 0.8 g.

In peritonitis, it is permissible to use intraperitoneal administration of infusion solutions at a dose of 50 mg 4 times per day per liter of dialysate. After IV application, you can continue treatment orally.

Quintor - Special instructions

With the simultaneous administration of ciprofloxacin and drugs for general anesthesia from the barbituric acid derivative group, continuous monitoring of heart rate, blood pressure, and ECG is necessary.

To avoid the development of crystalluria, exceeding the recommended daily dose is inadmissible, adequate fluid intake and maintenance of acid urine reaction are also necessary.

During treatment, one should refrain from engaging in potentially dangerous activities that require increased attention and speed of mental and motor reactions.

Patients with epilepsy, seizures in the anamnesis, vascular diseases and organic brain lesions, in connection with the threat of the development of adverse reactions from the central nervous system, ciprofloxacin should be prescribed only for "vital" indications.

If a severe and prolonged diarrhea occurs during or after treatment, the diagnosis of pseudomembranous colitis should be ruled out, which requires immediate discontinuation of the drug and the appropriate treatment.

When pain occurs in the tendons or the first signs of tendovaginitis treatment should be discontinued (individual cases of inflammation and even rupture of tendons during treatment with fluoroquinolones are described).

During the treatment period, avoid direct sunlight.

Interaction with medicinal products

Due to a decrease in the activity of microsomal oxidation in hepatocytes, it increases the concentration and prolongs T1 / 2 theophylline (and other xanthines, for example caffeine), oral hypoglycemic drugs, indirect anticoagulants, and helps to reduce the prothrombin index.

When combined with other antimicrobial drugs (beta-lactam antibiotics, aminoglycosides, clindamycin, metronidazole), synergy is usually observed; can be successfully used in combination with azlocillin and ceftazidime in infections caused by Pseudomonas spp .; with mezlocillin, azlocillin, etc. beta-lactam antibiotics - with streptococcal infections; with isoxazole penicillins and vancomycin - with staphylococcal infections; with metronidazole and clindamycin - with anaerobic infections.

Increases the nephrotoxic effect of cyclosporine, there is an increase in serum creatinine, in such patients monitoring of this indicator is required 2 times a week. With simultaneous reception increases the effect of indirect anticoagulants.

Oral administration together with Fe-containing drugs, sucralfate and antacid medicines containing Mg2 +, Ca2 + and Al3 +, leads to a decrease in absorption of ciprofloxacin, therefore, it should be prescribed 1-2 hours before or 4 hours after the administration of the above drugs. NSAIDs (excluding ASA) increase the risk of seizures.

Didanosine reduces the absorption of ciprofloxacin due to the formation with it of complexes with didanosine-containing Al3 + and Mg2 +. Metoclopramide accelerates absorption, which leads to a decrease in the time to reach its Cmax. Co-administration of uricosuric drugs leads to a delay in excretion (up to 50%) and an increase in the plasma concentration of ciprofloxacin. The infusion solution is pharmaceutically incompatible with all infusion solutions and drugs that are physically and chemically unstable under acidic conditions (the pH of the infusion solution of ciprofloxacin is 3.9-4.5). Do not mix the IV solution with solutions having a pH of more than 7.
