Baycip-TZ (Ciprofloxacin) is a broad-spectrum antiinfective agent of the fluoroquinolone class. Baycip-TZ (Ciprofloxacin) has in vitro activity against a wide range of gram-negative and gram-positive microorganisms. The mechanism of action of quinolones, including ciprofloxacin, is different from that of other antimicrobial agents such as beta-lactams, macrolides, tetracyclines, or aminoglycosides; therefore, organisms resistant to these drugs may be susceptible to ciprofloxacin. There is no known cross-resistance between Baycip-TZ (Ciprofloxacin) and other classes of antimicrobials. Notably the drug has 100 times higher affinity for bacterial DNA gyrase than for mammalian.
Tinidazole - A nitroimidazole antitrichomonal agent effective against Trichomonas vaginalis, Entamoeba histolytica, and Giardia lamblia infections.

Baycip-TZ (Tinidazole) is a synthetic antiprotozoal agent. Baycip-TZ (Tinidazole) demonstrates activity both in vitro and in clinical infections against the following protozoa: Trichomonas vaginalis, Giardia duodenalis (also termed G. lamblia), and Entamoeba histolytica.
