Azithromycin is an antibiotic used for the treatment of a number of bacterial infections (middle ear infections, strep throat, pneumonia, traveller’s diarrhoea) or number of sexually transmitted infections (chlamydia and gonorrhoea infections). Along with other medications, it may also be used for malaria. Recently the combination of azithromycin with antiviral drug hydroxychloroquine was found to be more efficient in the treatment of COVID-19.
Azithromycin was discovered in 1980 by Pliva and approved for medical use in 1988. It is one of the Essential Medicines in the World Health Organization’s List, the safest and most effective medicines needed in a health system. Azithromycin belongs to family of azalides, a type of macrolide antibiotic. It works by decreasing the production of protein, thereby stopping bacterial growth.
