Abstract

Azithromycin and clarithromycin are two relatively new macrolide antimicrobial agents. Although azithromycin and clarithromycin are structural analogues of erythromycin, they offer distinct advantages in comparison. This article reviews the pharmacokinetics, antimicrobial activity, clinical use, and adverse affects of these antimicrobial agents.
