Mechanism of Action

Ciplox Tz tablets hamper cell division and bacterial DNA synthesis. This causes the destruction of existing bacteria as well as regulates the proliferation of new bacteria.

The activity of Enzymes DNA Gyrase and Topoisomerase IV are crucial for bacterial DNA synthesis. Ciplox Tz impedes the path of DNA gyrase which in turn damages the DNA. This stops cell division of bacteria and curbs growth of new ones.

Ciprofloxacin:  This fluoroquinolone class of medicine inhibits bacterial DNA synthesis thus annihilating bacteria.

Tinidazole:  A powerful Nitroimidazole antibiotic, which controls production of DNA in protozoa and bacteria. This drug enters the cells of bacteria and protozoa and destroys them, which reduces the infection.
