Description

Fidaxomicin is a narrow spectrum macrocyclic antibiotic, sourced from actinomycete Dactylosporangium aurantiacum. Fidaxomicin is non-systemic, meaning it is minimally absorbed into the bloodstream. This anti-bacterial agent  selectively acts against pathogenic Clostridium difficile bacteria which may infect the colon, while causing minimal damage to the natural intestinal microbial flora.
