VIOPLEX-T combines the action of neomycin and bacitracin and is used exclusively for the topical treatment of bacterial skin and mucosa infections, for injuries susceptible to infection, as well as in operating procedures. The additive action of both antibiotics of the product and its efficacy towards all Gram (+) and Gram (-) microorganisms has been established. This combination provides great safety as far as the development of hospital staphylococcal infections or epidemy of the so-called "epidemic strains", that is, group I staphylococcus, or group III enterotoxinplasts and other types of high pathogenicity is concerned.
VIOPLEX-T is comparable to known broad spectrum antibiotics in the field of antimicrobial efficacy and it has the advantage over them due to its evident antimicrobicidal efficacy. Since it is not practically absorbed, high concentrations of the active ingredients may be achieved at its efficacy point thus avoiding the development of microbial resistance. The product's antimicrobial efficacy does not abolish the pus or necrotic tissues from the blood plasma. Due to the non-absorption of its active ingredients there are neither side effects nor contraindications regarding its use. In addition, no incidences of hypersensitivity or toxic incidences have been observed. Enzymes that may affect its action are not known.
