We all know that a bacterial infection can be very dangerous. Therefore, when the first symptoms are detected, people should immediately go to the hospital. Infection by bacteria may occur both outside and develop from within the body in response to the weakening of the immune system. Bacteria – single-celled organisms that multiply by dividing. They can be circular, and rod-shaped form. The bacteria are round in shape are called cocci. The most famous of them is the Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, meningococcus and pneumococcus. Bacteria with rod-shaped form are also known Escherichia coli, Shigella dysenteriae, pertussis Bacillus, and others. Bacteria can live on human skin, its mucous membranes, and intestines. In this case, if the person is completely healthy, his body constantly suppresses and growth. When there is a violation of immunity, the bacteria begin to develop rapidly, acting as a pathogenic factor.
The drug penetrates well into cells and tissues of the body and blocks the synthesis and construction of proteins by the bacteria. Therefore, it is highly effective against infection caused by both the extracellular and intracellular microorganisms (chlamydia, Legionella, Brucella, Mycoplasma). Macrophages responsible for phagocytosis (digestion and elimination of bacteria) do not always cope with a large antigenic load on their own. Rulide, once inside macrophages, contributes to the phagocytosis and anti-inflammatory effect.
