A07A INTESTINAL ANTIINFECTIVES
This group comprises locally acting antiinfectives. Antiinfectives for systemic use, see J - Antiinfectives for systemic use.
See also P - Antiparasitic products, insecticides and repellents.
Vancomycin and colistin for oral therapy are classified in this group as they are used in enterocolitis. Vancomycin injection/infusion is classified in J01XA - Glycopeptide antibacterials, and colistin injection/infusion in J01XB - Polymyxins.
Most of the combined products containing more than one antibiotic, contain neomycin. Neomycin is given classification priority, thus all combined products containing neomycin and other antibiotics should be classified in A07AA51 - neomycin, combinations.
