How does Clindamycin work?

Clindamycin has a primarily bacteriostatic effect in that it works by slowing or stopping the growth of bacteria. Just like antibiotics, Clindamycin works by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis thereby inhibiting bacterial growth. It also has a bacteriostatic effect in that it stops bacteria from reproducing but can’t kill them. Clindamycin’s actions work by binding to the 50s ribosomal subunit of bacteria thus disrupting protein synthesis in the process by interfering with the transpeptidation reaction, which thereby inhibits early chain elongation.
