Description: Troleandomycin (Triacetyloleandomycin), a macrolide acrolide antibiotic, is a selective CYP3A inhibitor. Troleandomycin is an oral corticosteroid for asthma study.
Troleandomycin, is a macrolide antibiotic, sold in Italy and Turkey. It is a derivative of Oleandomycin (O517500), and acts as a CYP3A4 inhibitor, which may cause drug interactions .
Oleandomycin contains three hydroxyl groups that aresubject to acylation, one in each of the sugars and one in theoleandolide. The triacetyl derivative retains the in vivo antibacterialactivity of the parent antibiotic but possesses superiorpharmacokinetic properties. It is hydrolyzed in vivo tooleandomycin. Troleandomycin achieves more rapid andhigher plasma concentrations following oral administrationthan oleandomycin phosphate, and it has the additionaladvantage of being practically tasteless. Troleandomycinoccurs as a white, crystalline solid that is nearly insoluble inwater. It is relatively stable in the solid state but undergoeschemical degradation in either aqueous acidic or alkalineconditions.
