Norodine is a broad-spectrum antibacterial, active against a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative organisms. Together the active ingredients produce a double blockade of folinic acid synthesis in bacteria resulting in a level of activity much greater than that obtained from either drug alone.
In vitro Norodine is effective against Escherichia coli, Rhodococcus equi, Staphylococcus spp and Streptococcus spp.
When susceptible organisms are present Norodine Granules may be effective in treating the following conditions.
Alimentary tract infections including diarrhoea.
Respiratory tract infections including pneumonia, pleurisy and strangles.
Wounds, septicaemia and general infections.
