Amacin® Eye and Ear Ointment

Amacin®

Amacin® combines antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions effective in the majority of commonly occurring eye and ear infections. Amacin is formulated in a polybase that ensures fluidity for ease of application and good contact of active ingredients with the cornea and aural mucosa.

Neomycin sulfate is a broad spectrum aminoglycoside antibiotic most active against aerobic Gram-negative rods (for example Proteus spp. and Pseudomonas spp.) and Gram-positive cocci such as Staphylococci.

Polymixin B is bactericidal even in the absence of cell growth and effective only against Gram-negative organisms.

Sulfacetamide sodium is well absorbed with high levels quickly attained in the cornea, conjunctiva, aqueous humour and iris.

Prednisolone is a corticosteroid with potent anti-inflammatory and excellent penetrating properties.
