modeOfAction

Mode of Action of Mahacef Cv 200mg Tablet

How Does It Work?

  • Cefixime controls the growth of bacteria and kills them by inhibiting the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall.
  • However, the bacteria can make an enzyme (beta-lactamases) that can destroy cefixime.
  • Clavulanic acid inactivates this enzyme. This helps cefixime to function optimally.
