Chloramphenicol is an antibiotic that prevents the accumulation of bacterial proteins in the body. It was discovered in 1948, Chloramphenicol was administered  to treat a variety of pathogens, including gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, and severe infections caused by bacterial growth.

One of the factors contributing to Chloramphenicol’s increased therapeutic potential is its lipid solubility. This characteristic allows it to easily diffuse through bacterial cell membranes, and attaches to the 50s subunit of the bacterial ribosome, thereby obstructing protein synthesis and inhibiting bacterial growth. Chloramphenicol capsule stops protein synthesis, leading to bacterial death and preventing proliferation. 

Let’s not forget, this drug also has some risks along with its benefits. For a breastfeeding mother or a woman planning to conceive while taking Chloramphenicol, it is strongly advised to consult a doctor beforehand.
