About Azithromycin quality control

Azithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic related to erythromycin. It is used primarily to treat various bacterial infections caused by respiratory pathogens, such as Aerobic gram-positive microorganisms and Aerobic gram-negative microorganisms. Azithromycin prevents bacterial cells from manufacturing specific proteins necessary for their survival. Azithromycin is rapidly absorbed and is widely distributed to tissues and becomes concentrated in cells. Peak plasma concentrations are achieved within 2 to 3 hours. Since Azithromycin is synthesized from Erythromycin, impurities will undergo the same modifications and the Azithromycin analogues of these impurities can be found in Azithromycin bulk samples. In addition, degradation products of Azithromycin as well as intermediate compounds of the semi-synthesis may be present as well. The detection and assessment of the purity of the Azithromycin sample become the key element for quality control.
