Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2014.


An antiprotozoal preparation, a derivative of 5-nitroimidazole.
The mechanism of action is the biochemical reduction of the 5-nitro group of ornidazole by intracellular transport proteins of anaerobic bacteria and protozoa. The reduced 5-nitro group of ornidazole interacts with DNA by microorganism cells, inhibiting the synthesis of their nucleic acids, which leads to the death of bacteria.
It is active against Trichomonas vaginalis, Giardia lamblia, Entamoeba histolytica, as well as against anaerobic bacteria Bacteroides spp.
(including Bacteroides fragilis, Bacteroides distasonis, Bacteroides ovatus, Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron, Bacteroides vulgatus), Fusobacterium spp., Clostridium spp. Orniferous microorganisms are not sensitive to ornidazole.

Suction and distribution

Absorption from the gastrointestinal tract is high.
Bioavailability is 90%. The time to reach C max is 1-2 h.
Binding to plasma proteins is less than 15%.
Penetrates into most tissues, passes through the BBB and the placental barrier. Excreted in breast milk.
Metabolism and excretion

Metabolized in the liver by hydroxylation, oxidation and glucuronation.
T 1/2 - 12-14 hours. It is excreted as metabolites by the kidneys (60-70%) and with the calves (20-25%), about 5% of the dose is excreted unchanged.

Duration of treatment is 1-2 days.
To prevent infections caused by anaerobic bacteria , appoint 0.5-1 g before the operation and 0.5 g 2 times / day after the operation for 3-5 days.
