💊 Profile

Framycetin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic which forms the major component of neomycin and has similar actions and uses. Framycetin sulfate is used topically in usual concentrations of 1% for the treatment of infections of the skin, and in concentrations of 0.5% for infections of the eye and ear. It is often used with other antibacterials and corticosteroids in topical preparations. Framycetin sulfate is poorly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and has been given orally for the treatment of gastrointestinal infections and pre-operatively for bowel preparation. It has sometimes been given prophylactically as part of regimens for the selective decontamination of the digestive tract in patients in intensive care.
