Amoxicillin Clavulanate Pottasium  (2:1,4:1,7:1)

Amoxicillin Clavulanate Pottasium (2:1,4:1,7:1)

functions as a mechanism-based β-lactamase inhibitor. While not effective by itself as an antibiotic, when combined with penicillin-group antibiotics, it can overcome antibiotic resistance in bacteria that secrete β-lactamase, which otherwise inactivates most penicillins.

Introduction

 functions as a mechanism-based β-lactamase inhibitor. While not effective by itself as an antibiotic, when combined with penicillin-group antibiotics, it can overcome antibiotic resistance in bacteria that secrete β-lactamase, which otherwise inactivates most penicillins.

In its most common form, the potassium salt potassium clavulanate is combined with:

· amoxicillin (co-amoxiclav, trade names Augmentin, Tyclav, Synulox (veterinary), and others)

· ticarcillin (co-ticarclav, trade name Timentin)

Clavulanic acid is an example of a clavam.

Clavulanic acid was patented in 1974


Functions and Applications

For the treatment of pyelonephritis during pregnancy, and for the treatment of pyelonephritis caused by gram-positive organisms, amoxicillin or amoxicillin-clavulanate potassium is preferred
