Sulfonamides chemical review


Sulfonamides, also known as sulfa drugs, are synthetic antimicrobial agents. They were widely used in food-producing animals to treat bacterial diseases because of their relatively low cost and ease of administration.

Five compounds in the sulfonamides group are approved for use in food-producing animals in Australia: sulfadimidine, sulfadiazine, sulfadoxine, sulfaquinoxaline and sulfatroxazole.
