KETEK® tablets contain telithromycin, a semisynthetic antibacterial in
the ketolide class for oral administration. Chemically, telithromycin is designated
as Erythromycin, 3-de[(2,6-dideoxy-3-C-methyl-3-O-methyl-α-L-ribo-hexopyranosyl)oxy]-11,12-dideoxy-6-O-methyl-3-oxo-12,11-[oxycarbonyl[[4-[4-(3-pyridinyl)-1H-imidazol-1-yl]butyl]imino]]-.

Telithromycin, a ketolide, differs chemically from the macrolide group of antibacterials
by the lack of α -L-cladinose at position 3 of the erythronolide A ring,
resulting in a 3-keto function. It is further characterized by a C11-12 carbamate
substituted by an imidazolyl and pyridyl ring through a butyl chain. Its empirical
formula is C43H65N5O10 and its molecular
weight is 812.03. Telithromycin is a white to off-white crystalline powder.
The following represents the chemical structure of telithromycin.









KETEK tablets are available as light-orange, oval, film-coated tablets, each
containing 400 mg or 300 mg of telithromycin, and the following inactive ingredients:
croscarmellose sodium, hypromellose, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose,
polyethylene glycol, povidone, red ferric oxide, talc, titanium dioxide, and
yellow ferric oxide.Last reviewed on RxList: 3/20/2007
