It has effect on all gram-positive bacteria that have no effect on lactic acid bacilli and bifidus bacteria; it suppresses development of gram-negative bacteria: Salmonella spp., E. coli. It assists in decrease of extra-chromosomal resistance of microorganisms to antimicrobial agents what increases their efficacy. Flavomycin inhibits the process of growth of gram-positive bacteria that are colonized in alimentary canal having effect on biosynthesis of the cell membrane of a bacterium breakdown of which results in death of a microorganism.
