What are Oxazolidinone antibiotics?
Oxazolidinone antibiotics are a class of synthetic antibacterial agents that act as a protein synthesis inhibitor on the ribosomal 50S subunit of the bacteria. This prevents the formation of the 70S initiation complex which is a prerequisite for bacterial reproduction. Oxazolidinones are used for gram-positive infections and can be bacteriostatic or bactericidal depending on bacteria being treated.
