Mode of Action:
MOXIFLOXACIN, in Moxitak D works as an anti-bacterial agent Floro-Quinolones exert their antibacterial effect by preventing bacterial DNA from unwinding and duplicating. Moxifloxacin hydrochloride is a synthetic 8-methoxyfluoroquinolone with a broad spectrum anti-bacterial effect on gram positive, gram negative and other anaerobic micro-organism. Well tolerated with minimal ocular side effects and provides increased penetration into ocular tissues and fluids with improved activity against Streptococci and Staphylococci species. It has a moderate to excellent activity against clinically relevant, gram-negative ocular pathogens.
DEXAMETHASONE is a synthetic analog of naturally occurring glucocorticoids (hydrocortisone and cortisone). Dexamethasone sodium phosphate is a water soluble, inorganic ester of dexamethasone and has anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant effects. It fulfills it function through multiple pathways, it binds with the corticosteroid receptors and alters the protein synthesis thus prevents the leukocyte infiltration at the site of inflammation, interferes in the function of the mediators responsible for the inflammatory response, suppresses the humoral immune responses and reduction in edema or scar tissue. The anti-inflammatory actions of dexamethasone involve phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins which control the biosynthesis of potent mediators of inflammation such as prostaglandins.
