Chloramphenicol is an antibiotic that is used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections. It is especially effective against conditions like typhoid fever, bacterial meningitis, and rickettsial infections. Chloramphenicol acts by blocking the production of vital proteins needed by bacteria to survive and reproduce, thus killing the bacteria. It has been used to treat bacterial infections since the 1950s and has been found to be a safe and effective option for many conditions. Chloramphenicol is particularly useful for treating infections in areas where access to more modern antibiotics is limited.
