How it works
Ciprofloxacin inhibits an enzyme required for the bacterial DNA to replicate; this blocks the multiplication and growth and results in the eventual death of the bacteria. Ornidazole inhibits the growth of protozoa (parasites) or bacteria by interfering with protein formation; this leads to bacterial or protozoal death.
