Ceftriaxone 250 mg Injection

Composition

Ceftriaxone 250 mg

Description:

DOBEX 250 is the brand name for the antibiotic agent ceftriaxone. Ceftriaxone is one of the most powerful antibiotics that belong to the class of third-generation cephalosporins, with high penetrability and longer half-life.

Ceftriaxone is a beta-lactam antibiotic that works by inhibiting the synthesis and assembly of the bacterial cell wall. This antibiotic binds to the Penicillin Binding Proteins (PBPs) that are present in the bacterial cell wall and blocks the transpeptidation step of the peptidoglycan synthesis. Impaired cell wall synthesis will lead to leakage of the cell content and eventually cause the death of the bacteria.
