Pharmacodynamic properties:

Lincomycin is a lincosamide antibiotic produced by Streptomyces lincolensis. Lincomycin is bacteriostatic in action inhibiting the protein synthesis predominantly by binding to the 50S ribosomal subunits of bacteria.

Depending on the sensitivity of micro-organisms, and on the concentration of the active substance the protein synthesis inhibition antibacterial action can either be bacteriostatic or bactericide.

Lincomycin is active against a wide range of Gram-positive micro-organisms, including also anaerobic bacteria such as clostridia and Brachyspira spp., as well as Mycoplasma spp.
