Amikacin sulfate [ chemically : D-Streptamine, O-3-amino-3-deoxy-alpha-D-
glucopyranosyl-(1-6) -O-(6-amino-6-deoxy-alpha-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-4) ) -
N1-(4-amino-2-hydroxy-1-oxobutyl) -2-deoxy-, (S) -sulfate (1:2) (salt) ] is a semi-synthetic aminoglycoside ( Streptomycin, Gentamicin, Tobramycin, Amikacin ) antibiotic derived from kanamycin. Its spectrum is somewhat broader than that of other aminoglycosides, including Serratia and Acinetobacter species, as well as certain staphylococci and streptococci. Amikacin is subject to attack by only two of the nine enzymes that attack gentamicin (seven of which also attack tobramycin) so that it often is the most effective agent against Gram-negative bacilli that have some aminoglycoside resistance. It is used for the treatment of serious infections due to organisms resistant to gentamicin and tobramycin (bone infections, respiratory tract infections, endocarditis, and septicemia) .
