A ALIMENTARY TRACT AND METABOLISM
A07 ANTIDIARRHEALS, INTESTINAL ANTIINFLAMMATORY/ANTIINFECTIVE AGENTS
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.


A07AA Antibiotics

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.

The DDDs are based on treatment of intestinal infections.
