Lincomycin derivatives

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Lincomycin derivatives are a small group of antibiotics that inhibit synthesis of bacterial proteins, essential for bacteria to survive. Lincomycin derivatives are reserved for treatment of infections due to susceptible strains of pneumococci, staphylococci and streptococci. One derivative is also indicated for treatment of Plasmodium falciparum (malaria).
