Azicin - Azicin is an azalide, a subclass of macrolide antibiotics.
Azicin is one of the world's best-selling antibiotics, and is derived from erythromycin; however, it differs chemically from erythromycin in that a methyl-substituted nitrogen atom is incorporated into the lactone ring, thus making the lactone ring 15-membered.
Azicin is used to treat or prevent certain bacterial infections, most often those causing middle ear infections, tonsillitis, throat infections, laryngitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, Typhoid, and sinusitis. In recent years it has primarily been used to prevent bacterial infections in infants and those with weaker immune systems. It is also effective against certain urinary tract infections, such as non-gonococcal urethritis and cervicitis. Recent studies have also indicated it to be effective against late-onset asthma, but these findings are controversial and not widely accepted.

It is also used to treat sexually-transmitted diseases such as gonorrhoea, and other genital infections. Azicin can also be used to prevent infection when you undergo certain dental procedures. Azicin belongs to a group of antibiotics called the macrolides.
