modeOfAction

Mode of Action of V Pod Dry Syr

How Does It Work?

  • V Pod Dry Syr 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.
  • Clavulanic acid inactivates this enzyme and hence helps Cefpodoxime to function optimally.
