Tylosin is a macrolide antibiotic that interferes with bacterial protein synthesis by reversibly binding to
the 50S subunit of the ribosome. Tylosin is bacteriostatic in action and has a broad spectrum of activity.
It is active against aerobic and anaerobic Gram-positive bacteria including Clostridium perfringens and
some Gram-negative strains such as Pasteurella. Tylosin has a particular action against Mycoplasma
gallisepticum S6, which is implicated in the chronic respiratory disease (CRD) in chickens and
infectious sinusitis in turkeys.
