CEFUROXIME 500 MG: – Cefuroxime is an antibiotic which is active against wide range of gram positive and gram negative bacteria. It is a cephalosporin antibiotic. It acts by inhibiting the bacterial cell wall growth.

PHARMACODYNAMICS: – Cefuroxime is a second-generation cephalosporin, this works as penicillin. It interrupts the synthesis of bacterial cell wall by interfering the formation of major components essential for the formation of cell wall i.e. peptidoglycan. Like penicillins, Cefuroxime binds to penicillin binding proteins in the bacterial cell wall which affects the synthesis of bacterial cell wall. Ultimately, Cell lysis is initiated with autolytic enzymes in the cell wall such as autolysins.
