What is doxycycline?
Doxycycline is a broad-spectrum bacteriostatic drug (antibiotic) synthesised from oxytetracycline, a found naturally tetracycline synthesized by Streptomyces species bacteria; it falls to the tetracycline family of antibiotics.
Doxycycline is prescribed for the prevention or treatment such as rickettsial infections, sexually transmitted diseases, respiratory tract infections, bacterial infections, Lyme disease, ocular infections, anthrax, acute intestinal amebiasis, traveler’s diarrhoea, and severe acne are some of the conditions that can occur. It has also been studied as a cancer therapy since some research show that doxycycline can reduce cell proliferation and invasion, induce apoptosis, and prevent the gap phase (in which a cancerous cell grows and prepares to synthesis DNA).
What is doxycycline available as?
Doxycycline is available as a capsule, tablet, delayed-release tablet, and oral suspension (liquid).
Which types of bacteria does doxycycline treat?
Doxycycline is efficient against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, spirochetes, and mycoplasma.
