Apramycin (also Nebramycin II) is an aminoglycoside antibiotic used in veterinary medicine. It is produced by Streptomyces tenebrarius.[1]

Spectrum of bacterial susceptibility and resistance[edit]

Apramycin can be used to treat bacterial infections in animals caused by Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The following shows susceptibility data on medically significant organisms:

  • Escherichia coli - 1 μg/mL - >512 μg/mL (this large range may be due to resistant organisms, typical MIC values are likely in the range of 2 -8 μg/mL.
  • Klebsiella pneumoniae - 2 μg/mL - >256 μg/mL
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa - 4 μg/mL
