FIXIMAC DRY SYRUP
Each 5ml of reconstituted suspension contains:
equivalent to Anhydrous Cefixime
It is a third generation oral cephalosporin, effective against a wide spectrum of sensitive gram positive, gram negative & anaerobic bacterial pathogens including Beta-lactamase producing strains. It has high affinity for penicillin binding proteins with varying site of activity. It acts by inhibition of bacterial cell-wall synthesis. The elimination half-life is about 3 hours, with little variation over the usual therapeutic dosage range.
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
It binds to one of the penicillin binding proteins (PBPs) which inhibits the final transpeptidation step of the peptidoglycan synthesis in the bacterial cell wall, thus inhibiting biosynthesis and arresting cell wall assembly resulting in bacterial cell death.
Infections of respiratory, urinary & billiary tract and other salmonella infections.
