INTRODUCTION

GATE HS contains Gatifloxacin which belongs to a group of antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones. It is indicated to treat bacterial conjunctivitis (infections) and also relieves the symptoms of the infection by stopping further growth of the causative microorganisms. Bacterial conjunctivitis is an infection of the eye's mucous membrane, the conjunctiva, which extends from the back surface of the eyelids.

Gatifloxacin is a quinolone antibiotic used for bacterial eye infections (conjunctivitis) which works by killing the bacteria that cause infection. It prevents the bacteria from dividing and repairing and stops the action of a bacterial enzyme.
