The greatest innovation of the 20th century is the launch of antibiotics into the clinical use. It helps in treating infectious diseases caused by bacteria and in addition to this, it is used in the cancer treatment, organ transplant and open-heart surgery. This work focusses on a miracle antibiotic, Azithromycin which is used in several diseases caused by bacteria. The detailed study on this compound is discussed in the forthcoming sections. This article pinpoints on computing various degree-based topological indices for Azithromycin followed by the numerical representation of the considered indices in tabulated form for better understanding.
