Medical Description

Cefakind 250 tablet is an antibiotic medicine used to treat bacterial infections of various parts of the body. It contains Cefuroxime as its active ingredient. Cefuroxime is a higher antibiotic and belongs to the class of cephalosporins. Cefakind 250 tablet is effective against infections of tonsils, throat, sinus, ears, respiratory tract, urinary tract, skin and soft tissues. It works by inhibiting the cell wall synthesis of the bacteria, which ultimately causes the death of bacteria.
