^^ Tylosin is a macrolide antibiotic used in veterinary medicine. It has a broad spectrum of activity against Gram-positive organisms and a limited range of Gram-negative organisms.

Tylosin is used for bacterial infections in a wide range of species and has a high margin of safety. It has also been used as a growth stimulant in some species, and as a treatment for colitis in companion animals.

The method of work 
Like other macrolides, Tylosin has a bacteriostatic effect on susceptible organisms, resulting from inhibition of protein conformation through binding.

Scope of activity
Tylosin has a broad spectrum of activity against Gram-positive bacteria including Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Corynebacterium, and Erysibilothrix. It has a much narrower Gram-negative spectrum of activity, but has been shown to be active against Campylobacter coli and some spirochete species.
