CAS Number : 220620-09-7

Therapeutic Category: Antibiotic

Innovator: Developed by Francis Tally and marketed by Wyeth under the brand name Tygacil

Indication : Tigecycline is given intravenously and has activity against a variety of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial pathogens, many of which are resistant to existing antibiotics

Dosage: 50mg in 1 vial injection.

Class: New class of antibiotics called the glycylcyclines


This antibiotic is the first clinically available drug in a new class of antibiotics called the glycylcyclines. It is structurally similar to the tetracyclines in that it contains a central four-ring carbocyclic skeleton and is actually a derivative of minocycline. Tigecycline has a substitution at the D-9 position which is believed to confer broad spectrum activity.

Mechanism of Action:

Tigecycline is bacteriostatic and is a protein synthesis inhibitor by binding to the 30S ribosomal subunit of bacteria and thereby blocking entry of Aminoacyl-tRNA into the A site of the ribosome during prokaryotic translation.
