Each SPORIBEST 500 capsule contains cephalexin 500mg.
SPORIBEST 500 is the brand name for cephalosporins class antibiotic, cephalexin. Cephalexin possesses broad-spectrum activity against both Gram +ve and Gram-ve bacteria. This drug kills the bacterial cells by disrupting the cell wall and causing cell content leakage.
Cephalexin belongs to the class of first-generation cephalosporins and is a beta-lactam antibiotic. This antibacterial drug binds to the penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) and blocks the transpeptidation step of peptidoglycan synthesis. This hampers the synthesis and assembly of the cell wall and increases its permeability, which will eventually lead to the death of the bacterial cells.
