Cefaclor general information

What is Cefaclor used for?

Cefaclor tablets 250mg are a broad spectrum antibiotic used to treat common infections caused by a variety of bacteria in different parts of the body.  These include upper respiratory tract infections, such as sinusitis, tonsillitis and pharyngitis; lower respiratory tract infections such as, pneumonia and acute bronchitis, including acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis; ear infections (otitis media).  Cefaclor tablets 250mg are also used for genitourinary tract infections like, cystitis and pyelonephritis (kidney infection); skin and soft tissue infections such as, furunculosis (infection of the hair follicle), pyoderma (pus filled skin infection) and impetigo (a blistering sore skin infection).  Cefaclor tablets 250mg are also used to treat genital infections including acute gonococcal urethritis in men and women.   

How does Cefaclor work?

Cefaclor tablets 250mg contain cefaclor monohydrate, a second generation cephalosporin antibiotic, belonging to a sub group of the beta lactam group of antibiotics (which include penicillins).  Cefaclor works by binding to the penicillin binding proteins on the bacterial cell wall. This inhibits the synthesis of the peptidoglycan layer of the bacterial cell wall, which is important for the structural integrity of the cell wall.  Blocking formation of the bacterial cell wall in susceptible bacteria kills the bacteria.  Unlike other beta lactam antibiotics like penicillins, cephalosporins are less susceptible to destruction by beta-lactamase found in some resistant bacteria.  Cefaclor has good stability to bacterial beta-lactamase and is therefore, active against many ampicillin-resistant or amoxycillin-resistant strains.  Cefaclor in Cefaclor tablets 250mg is effective against a wide range of common bacteria found in general practice and in hospitals including: Streptococcus pyogenes and pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus (including penicillinase-producing strains and non-resistant strains); Haemophilus influenzae; Klebsiella pneumonia, Escherichia coli among others.
