Lincomycin is a lincosamide antibiotic that comes from actinomycete Streptomyces lincolnensis. A related compound, clindamycin, is derived from lincomycin by using thionyl chloride to replace the 7-hydroxy group with a chlorine atom with an inversion of chirality.
Although similar in antibacterial spectrum and mechanism of action to macrolides, lincomycin is also effective against other organisms including actinomycetes and some species of Mycoplasma and Plasmodium. Intramuscular administration of a single dose of 600 mg of Lincomycin produces average peak serum levels of 11.6 µg/mL at 60 min, and maintains therapeutic levels for 17 h to 20 h, for most susceptible gram-positive organisms.
Urinary excretion after this dose ranges from 1.8% to 24.8%. Lincomycin is an antibiotic classified as a member of the lincosamide class, which typically features an L-proline amino acid derivative linked through an amide group with an eight-carbon aminothio sugar.
Lincomycin is a narrow-spectrum antibiotic with activity against Gram-positive and cell wall-less bacteria including pathogenic species of Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, and Mycoplasma.
