INTRODUCTION

LYNX contains Lincomycin which belongs to a group of medicines called Lincosamide antibiotics. It is used to treat upper, lower respiratory infections, skin and soft tissue infections, bone and joint infections, septicemia, endocarditis and bacillary dysentery.

Lincomycin is an antibiotic produced by fermentation of Streptomyces lincolnensis which inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by binding to the 50S subunit of the bacterial ribosome.
