Mechanism of Action:
Ozenoxacin is an antimicrobial drug. Ozenoxacin is a quinolone antimicrobial drug. The mechanism of action involves the inhibition of bacterial DNA replication enzymes, DNA gyrase A and topoisomerase IV. Ozenoxacin has been shown to be bactericidal against S. aureus and S. pyogenes organisms.
The mechanism of quinolone resistance can arise through mutations of one or more of the genes that encode DNA gyrase or topoisomerase IV. Resistant organisms will typically carry a combination of mutations within gyrA and parC subunits. Overall the frequency of resistant mutants selected by ozenoxacin is ≤10-10 .
Ozenoxacin is indicated for the topical treatment of impetigo due to Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus pyogenes in adult and pediatric patients 2 months of age and older.
Ozenoxacin is found to be effective against certain bacteria which are resistant to currently used quinolones or fluoroquinolones antimicrobial agents.
