CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY SECTION.
CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY: The most widely accepted mechanism of action of sulfonamides is the Woods-Fildes theory which is based on the fact that sulfonamides act as competitive antagonists to para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), an essential component for bacterial growth.

The biological half-life has variously been reported as to 12.8 hours.
