How it works
It acts via inhibition of bacterial DNA gyrase (topoisomerase, which is essential in the reproduction of bacterial DNA), ultimately resulting in interference with DNA function. Ciprofloxacin is highly active against a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative organisms and has shown activity against some anaerobes.
