Description: Pristinamycin is a mixture of two components that have a synergistic antibacterial action. The two components are Pristinamycin IIA (V673810) and Pristinamycin IA (P745000).
Pristinamycin is a systemic antibiotic of the synergistins/ streptogramins class, composed of two subunits: pristinamycin IA and pristinamycin IIA. It induces several types of drug reactions such as maculo-papular exanthema, systemic dermatitis, or acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis. Some patients have been previously skin-sensitized by virginiamycin. Crossreactivity is expected to virginiamycin and to the associated dalfopristin and quinupristin.
