Tigecycline is a new glycylcycline
derivative of tetracycline, which is bacteriostatic in nature and effective against both Gram-positive as well as Gram-negative organisms.
One is tigecycline, the first drug in the glycylcycline
class of antibiotics, and the other is ceftaroline fosamil, a broad-spectrum cephalosporin.
Rates of antimicrobial resistance in Latin America (2004-2007) and in vitro activity of the glycylcycline

sup] Tigecycline is a glycylcycline
with a wide spectrum of activity against aerobic and anaerobic Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
Antimicrobial susceptibility among pathogens collected from hospitalized patients in the United States and in vitro activity of tigecycline, a new glycylcycline
28 Tigecycline, a glycylcycline
, is recommended for resistant skin, soft tissue and intra- abdominal infections and is not a good option for blood stream infections and urinary tract infections.
However tigecycline, a glycylcycline
antimicrobial, is in use for several years with a mechanism of entering the bacterial cell through energy-dependent pathways or via passive diffusion, and then binding to the subunit 30S of the ribosomes, resulting the inhibition of protein syntesis of the microorganism.
19Tigecycline is a glycylcycline
derived antibioticwhich is in vitro effective on MDR A.

Distribution of resistant gram-positive organisms across the census regions of the United States and in vitro activity of tigecycline, a new glycylcycline
Therefore, we studied the in vitro susceptibility of tigecycline, a new glycylcycline
with promising broad spectrum of activity against Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria at a tertiary care hospital in north India.
If approved, tigecycline would be the first glycylcycline
available to treat pneumonia, said Dr.
