      Cefadroxil Monohydrate

      Used For

      Bacterial Infection

      How it works

      Cefadroxil is a first-generation cephalosporin antibiotic. It is bactericidal, and acts by inhibiting synthesis of the bacterial cell wall. Bacterial cell wall is held rigid and protected against osmotic rupture by peptidoglycan. Cefadroxil inhibits the final cross linking stage of peptidoglycan production by binding to and inactivating transpeptidase, which is a penicillin binding protein on the inner surface of the bacterial cell membrane may result in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms. Careful observation of the patients is essential. If super infection occurs during the therapy, appropriate measures should be taken.
