Introduction

Anspar Tablet is a synthetic, broad-spectrum antibacterial agent from the difluoroquinolone family. It has been reported to be more active in vitro than ciprofloxacin against some organisms, including staphylococci and Mycobacteria, and has a much longer plasma half-life (16 hours).

Anspar Tablet inhibits the supercoiling activity of DNA gyrase which is an enzyme essential for DNA replication thus promoting the breakage of DNA structures. It has activity against S. pneumoniae, S. aureus, H. influenzae, K. pneumoniae, M. catarrhalis and Mycobacterium spp.

Anspar Precaution

It should be used with caution in renal diseases, gastric ulcers and with concomitant use of NSAIDs. In renal failure of third degree severity (creatinine clearance < 30 ml/min) dosage modification is recommended 400 mg on 1st day, 200 mg on 2nd and 3rd day followed by 200 mg every 48 hours. Because fluoroquinolones have been associated with tendon rupture, Anspar Tablet should be discontinued at the first sign of tendon pain. Exposure to UV radiation during treatment should be avoided.
