What is Metronidazole and what are its uses?

Metronidazole kills or prevents the growth of certain bacteria and protozoa (single cell animals).

How does Metronidazole treat?

Metronidazole belongs to a group of antibiotics called the azoles. Metronidazole works by entering the bacterial cell and binding to its genetic material (DNA). This prevents the formation of further DNA, which the bacteria require for survival, and therefore the bacteria are unable to reproduce.

Metronidazole is an antibiotic specifically used to stop the spread of infections, which do not require oxygen to grow. Metronidazole is used in this preparation to treat an inflammatory condition of the vagina, known as bacterial vaginosis.
