|Background||Gentamicin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic that is hydrosoluble, polar heat stable and slightly basic. Gentamicinâ€™s antibacterial activity is due to its ability to bind to the 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome where it inhibits protein synthesis. All the aminoglycosides are potentially toxic compounds causing significant damage in vestibular and auditory functions in human and animals. Nevertheless, they are used in practice because of their antibacterial and antifungal activities. These compounds have been found to be useful for the treatment of serious infections due to Gram negative microorganisms. The European Commission established a gentamicin Maximum Residue Limit (MRL) of 50 ppb for muscle and fat, 200 ppb for liver, 750 ppb for kidney and 100 ppb for milk.|
