MECHANISM OF ACTION:

Moxifloxacin belongs to a group of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones. It kills a wide range of infection causing bacteria both gram positive and gram negative (broad spectrum). It acts by inhibiting enzymes (DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV) involved in DNA processes that are essential for bacterial growth and survival thereby killing the bacteria.
