Pharmacological properties

Combined preparations containing corticosteroids and antimicrobial agents. Dexamethasone and antimicrobial agents. ATX code S0ЗС A01.
CIPRONORM is a combined drug with pronounced antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties due to the action of ciprofloxacin and dexamethasone.
Ciprofloxacin belongs to the group of fluoroquinolones. The mechanism of action of ciprofloxacin consists in inhibiting bacterial DNA gyrase, thereby preventing the process of DNA replication, as well as in disrupting the integrity of the bacterial cell membrane, which leads to its death. Ciprofloxacin hydrochloride rapidly eliminates R-plasmids, which prevents the development of resistance of microorganisms to the drug.
The drug is active against gram-negative and gram-positive microorganisms, and especially against E. coli, Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Enterobacter spp., Klebsiella spp., Proteus spp., Serratia spp., Campylobacter spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa., Yersinia spp., Vibrio spp., Aeromonas spp., Haemophilus spp .; are also sensitive to the drug: Brucella spp., Staphylococcus spp. (including strains producing penicillinase and methicillin-resistant strains), Mycoplasma spp., Mycobacterium spp.
When instilled into the conjunctiva, the drug easily penetrates into all tissues of the eye, creating a stable therapeutic concentration. Ciprofloxacin penetrates well into the epithelium of the cornea and conjunctiva, while achieving a therapeutic concentration in the ophthalmic fluid.
When the drug is instilled into the ear, absorption of ciprofloxacin is insignificant. It is excreted in the urine.
Dexamethasone is a synthetic glucocorticosteroid with pronounced anti-inflammatory, antiallergic and antiexudative activity, with a rapid onset and short duration of action.
Dexamethasone stabilizes cell membranes, reduces the permeability of blood capillaries, exhibits an antiexudative effect by stabilizing the membranes of lysosomes.
When applied topically, systemic absorption is low. After instillation into the eyes, dexamethasone penetrates well into the epithelium of the cornea and conjunctiva; while in the ophthalmic fluid, therapeutic concentrations are observed; with inflammation or damage to the mucous membrane of the eye, the penetration rate increases. The duration of the anti-inflammatory action after the instillation of 1 drop of the solution is from 4 to 8 hours.
A small amount of dexamethasone enters the systemic circulation. Approximately 60-70% of dexamethasone entering the circulatory system binds to plasma proteins. Dexamethasone is metabolized in the liver under the action of cytochrome-containing enzymes, metabolites are excreted through the intestines. The half-life is on average 3 hours.

Application
Treatment for dogs and cats:
with infectious and inflammatory diseases of the eyes and ears caused by microorganisms sensitive to ciprofloxacin;
