Description

ALTHROCIN 500mg 

Althrocin is an antibiotic that is used to treat infection of the respiratory tract and conditions such as diphtheria, pertussis, bronchitis and legionnaires disease.

 

How it works?

Althrocin slows down the protein break down by fastening the 50S ribosomal subunit and as a result of this jams down the translocation reactions. Due to this the cell development is completely stopped and the bacteria are not able to grow and thus die.
