Antibiotic Susceptibility Tests are conducted in microbiological laboratories to study the effect of an antibiotic on the growth of a microbe. The most common method to study antibiotic susceptibility includes the Kirby-Bauer Method. In this method, small discs saturated with antibiotic is placed on the plate containing the bacteria. A zone of inhibition of growth around the disc is observed to study the susceptibility of the microbe to the antibiotic. Clindamycin- CD-2mcg is a product by Micromaster. It is an antibiotic which functions against bacteria. It is found to be effective against middle ear infections, Streptococcus, pneumonia, endocarditis, etc. This drug is defined to be bacteriostatic. It inhibits protein synthesis by interfering with ribosomal translocation activity. It binds with the 50S rRNA of the large subunit of the ribosome and inhibits translocation. The compound has been found to be active against bacterial species such as, aerobic gram-positive cocci like Streptococcus and Staphylococcus. Some aerobic gram-negative bacteria like Pseudomonas, Haemophilus are found to have evolved some resistance against Clindamycin.
