CEFOPERAZONE 500 + SULBACTAM ANHYDROUS 500MG
CEFOPERAZONE 500 AND SULBACTAM ANHYDROUS 500MG INJECTION
CEFOPERAZONE+SULBACTAM is a combination drug, used in the treatment of bacterial infections in the respiratory tract, urinary tract, blood infection, meningitis, skin, abdominal, bone, joint infections, or sexually transmitted diseases. For their potency of killing bacteria, CEFOPERAZONE+SULBACTAM falls under the class of medicines called an antibiotic. Bacterial infections occur when foreign bacteria invade our system and start multiplying rapidly. The toxins produced by these bacteria disrupt the normal functioning of the human body and make us sick. CEFOPERAZONE+SULBACTAM only attacks bacteria and does not target other pathogens. Hence, it is used to only treat bacterial infections.
In the combination of CEFOPERAZONE+SULBACTAM, Cefoperazone is a cephalosporin antibiotic and sulbactam is a beta-lactamase inhibitor. Cefoperazone attacks the bacteria by preventing the formation of bacterial cell covering responsible for bacterial cellular activity, thereby destroying the bacteria. Sulbactam decreases bacterial resistance thereby enhancing the activity of cefoperazone against foreign bacteria. This sums up the synergetic action of CEFOPERAZONE+SULBACTAM in fighting bacterial infections.
