Moxifloxacin HCl is anti-infective compound with a broad antibacterial spectrum.[1]

Moxifloxacin is a fourth generation fluoroquinolone antibacterial agent with a broad antibacterial spectrum against Gram positive bacteria and Gram negative bacteria in vitro.[1] The antibacterial activity of moxifloxacin is from the inhibition effect of DNA topoisomerase II and topoisomerase IV which are involved in bacterial DNA replication, transcription, recombination and repair[2]. The oral bioavailability of moxifloxacin is absolutely good which can be up to 90%. There are no many potenti[al drug interactions because that moxifloxacin is not a inhibitor or substrate of the hepatic cytochrome P-450 isoenzyme system. Moxifloxacin had bacteriologic eradication rates about 90–97% and clinical success rates of 88–97%. The MIC90s of moxifloxacin for the ciprofloxacin-susceptible isolates were ≤0.6 μg/mL. The MIC90s of moxifloxacin for enterococci range from 1 to 4 μg/mL. The reported MIC90s of moxifloxacin for Haemophilus parainfluenzae are from 0.03 to 0.125μg/mL. The MIC90s of moxifloxacin for B. fragilisrange 0.25–4 μg/mL and 4 μg/mL for other bacteroides species. [3]

Moxifloxacin also inhibits hPON1 (human serum paraoxonase-1) enzyme activity with Ki value of 2.641±0.004 mM in vitro.[4]
