Description / Action: 

Staphban-F ointment has mupirocin 2.0% w/w along with Fluticasone 0.005% in a water-soluble base. Mupirocin has antimicrobial property and its unique structure is different from any other class of antibiotics. Mupicin works by blocking protein synthesis in bacteria by inhibiting enzymes helping in RNA synthesis (isoleucyl transfer-RNA synthetase).   Mupirocin is produced by fermentation of Pseudomonas fluorescens. This mode of action makes mupirocin different from other classes of antibiotics and there is no cross-resistance with gentamicin, lincomycin, chloramphenicol, neomycin, erythromycin, novobiocin, penicillin, tetracycline and streptomycin. Mupirocin is effective against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Fluticasone is a steroid which is helpful in the management of inflammation. Fluticasone is safer than systemic steroids.
