Instruct patient not toswallow medicationCiproCiprofloxacinThe Fluoroquinolones arebactericidal, meaning that they killthe bacteria cell. They act to inhibitDNA Gyrase, the enzymeresponsible for the supercoiling andpacking, and thus replication andtranscription, of DNA in bacteria.Fluoroquinolones also inhibitTopoisomerase IV, an enzymeinvolved in DNA replication and celldivision. Since these agents do notbind to human Topoisomerases,they are not toxic to the patient.Antibacterial
