Clindamycin

Description
Clindamycin is a lincosamide antibiotic with a primarily bacteriostatic action against Gram-positive aerobes and a wide range of anaerobic bacteria. Lincosamides such as Clindamycin bind to the 50S subunit of the bacterial ribosome similarly to Macrolides such as Erythromycin and inhibit the early stages of protein synthesis. The action of Clindamycin is predominantly bacteriostatic although high concentrations may be slowly bactericidal against sensitive strains.
