Mupitas is a novel topical broad spectrum antibiotic for the treatment bacterial skin infections. Mupitas ointment contains Mupirocin 2% weight/weight. Mupirocin is a topical antibacterial agent, active against those organisms responsible for the majority of skin infections, e.g. Staphylococcus aureus, including methicillin-resistant strains, other staphylococci and streptococci. It is also active against Gram-negative pathogens, such as Escherichia coli and Heamophilus influenza.
Absorption & Excretion:
Mupitas penetrates intact human skin but the rate of systemic absorption appears to be low. Systemically absorbed Mupitas is rapidly metabolized to the inactive metabolite monic acid and quickly excreted by the kidneys.
