Azab 500 is a semi-synthetic antibiotic, the first representative of the azalide subclass, somewhat different in structure from the classical macrolides.
Obtained by modifying 14-membered macrolides by incorporating a nitrogen atom into the lactone ring between 9 and 10 carbon atoms, the ring then becomes 15-membered. This restructuring causes a significant increase in the acid resistance of the drug – 300 times compared with erythromycin.
