Clindamycin in-vitro activity covers the following organisms: Gram-Positive: Aerobic organisms: Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermis (both penicillinase and non-penicillinase producing strains), Streptococci (except S.faecalis), pneumococci. Anaerobic organisms: Non spore forming Bacilli such as Propionibacterium species. Gram-Negative: Anaerobic Bacilli such as Bacteroides species and Fusobacterium species.
Infections with microorganisms susceptible to Clindamycin such as: – Respiratory tract infections. – Skin and soft tissue infections. – Dental infections. – Genital and post-surgical infections.
Clindamycin demonstrates cross resistance with Lincomycin. Some Staphylococcus strains originally resistant to Erythromycin rapidly develop resistance to Clindamycin.
