Mode of Action of Aproxe Ca Tab

How Does It Work?

  • Aproxe Ca Tablet works by the combined action of both its components: cefpodoxime and clavulanic acid
  • Cefpodoxime controls the growth of bacteria and kills them by inhibiting the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall. However, the bacteria make an enzyme (beta-lactamases) that can destroy Cefpodoxime.
