Mechanism of action

Finafloxacin is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic, which selectively inhibit bacterial type II topoisomerase enzymes, DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV, which are required for bacterial DNA replication, transcription, repair and recombination.

Toxicity

-Finafloxacin was shown to be genotoxic and clastogenic in vitro, with and without metabolic activation, and in vivo. -General toxicity studies in rats have confirmed sperm toxicity following oral and intravenous dosing. -At 500 mg/kg/day, males were completely infertile, presumably due to low sperm count and sperm immobility.
