Aristopharma Ltd. proudly introduced the synthetic oxazolidinone antimicrobial drug "Lizox" the preparations of Linezolid 400 & 600 mg tablets.

Linezolid is a synthetic antibacterial agent belonging to the oxazolidinones class, which has clinical utility in the treatment of infections caused by aerobic gram-positive bacteria. Linezolid inhibits bacterial protein synthesis through a mechanism of action different from that of other antibacterial agents; therefore, cross-resistance between Linezolid and other classes of antibiotics is unlikely. Linezolid binds to a site on the bacterial 23S ribosomal RNA of the 50S subunit and prevents the formation of a functional 70S initiation complex, which is an essential component of the bacterial translation process.

Linezolid is indicated for the treatment of- Nosocomial pneumonia, Community-acquired pneumonia, Complicated skin and skin structure infections, including diabetic foot infections, without concomitant osteomyelitis, Uncomplicated skin and skin structure infections, Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium infections.
