Colistin (or polymyxin E) is a bactericidal antibiotic with a spectrum of activity entirely limited to the gram– bacteria.The mode of action may be in relation with the permeability of the cell through an effect on the cell membranes of the susceptible bacteria.The species usually susceptible to colistin are: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Haemophilus inﬂuenzae, Klebsiella, Aerobacter, Pasteurella, Salmonella, Shigella Colistin is very few absorbed by the intestinal mucosa. Its activity will therefore be limited to enteric infections. Absorption being very low following oral administration, the treatment with colistin will be tolerated.
Poultry, rabbits, calves, lambs: infections caused by sensitive germs.
