*Please inquire the availability for this product. Rolitetracycline, launched in the late 1950s, was the first of the semi-synthetic tetracyclines. Rolitetracycline is formed by a Mannich condensation of formaldehyde and pyrrolidine with tetracycline. Rolitetracycline is a pro-drug of tetracycline, in which the pyrrolidine moiety improves bioavailability compared with tetracycline. Rolitetracycline has broad spectrum Gram positive activity in vivo, but pH instability limits use to parenteral administration. The intrinsic in vitro activity and SARs for this region of the tetracycline molecule have not been extensively investigated.
