aminoglycoside

 [ah-me″no-gli´ko-sīd]
any of a group of antibacterial antibiotics derived from species of Streptomyces; they interfere with the function of bacterial ribosomes. They contain an inositol moiety substituted with two amino or guanidino groups and with one or more sugars or aminosugars. The group includes amikacin, gentamicin, kanamycin, neomycin, streptomycin, and tobramycin. They are used to treat infections caused by gram-negative organisms and are classified as bactericidal agents because of their interference with bacterial replication. All are highly toxic, requiring frequent monitoring of blood serum levels and careful observation of the patient for early signs of toxicity, particularly ototoxicity and nephrotoxicity.

netilmicin

/net·il·mi·cin/ (net″il-mi´sin) a semisynthetic aminoglycoside antibiotic having a wide range of activity; used as the sulfate salt in the treatment of infection caused by susceptible gram-negative organisms.

netilmicin

An AMINOGLYCOSIDE antibiotic drug derived from gentamicin. It is slightly less likely to damage the kidneys than gentamicin and is often effective against organisms resistant to that drug. A brand name is Netillin.
