Pharmacological properties

Ornidazole is an imidazole derivative, an antibiotic that is similar in properties to metronidazole and other 5-nitroimidazoles.
Shows antibacterial and antiprotozoal effect against Trichomonas, lamblia, gardnerella, and other microorganisms, including anaerobic cocci.
Also, as a result of the metabolic processes that this substance causes in the cells, toxins are released that cause impaired cell respiration, which also leads to the death of pathogen cells.
