pneumoniae are treated with macrolides or azalide
antibiotics (8); however, because of excessive and inappropriate use of antibiotics, macrolide resistance is increasing (9-11).

The role of azalide
antibiotics in the treatment of Chlamydia.
Azithromycin belongs to the azalide
subclass in the macrolide antibiotic class, with a proven in vitro and in vivo action spectrum against major pneumonia-causing agents: S.
Treatment for either organism generally requires a single dose of an antimicrobial (typically an intramuscular or oral cephalosporin for gonorrhea and an oral tetracycline or azalide
for chlamydia); however, there is evidence suggesting that pharyngeal gonococcal infections are more difficult to treat and, therefore, may require a longer course of treatment.
Azithromycin is an azalide
antibiotic with an extensive range of indications.
Azithromycin, an azalide
antibiotic, is commonly used for community-acquired pneumonia, chlamydia, cervicitis, cellulitis, and bronchitis.

In this context, wide use of 14-membered and azalide
