Each CEFDIS-AZ LB tablet contains Cefixime 200mg, Azithromycin 500mg, and Lactic Acid bacillus
CEFDIS-AZ LB is the antibacterial combination of cefixime, azithromycin and lactic acid bacillus. This combination works both by killing the harmful bacteria and improving the immune system.
Cefixime is beta-lactam antibiotic belonging to the class of third-generation cephalosporins. It is one of the very few antibiotics that is highly resistant to beta-lactamase activity. This drug works by inhibiting the peptidoglycan synthesis in the bacterial cell wall. Cefixime binds to specific penicillin-binding proteins, which have a key role in the last stage of peptidoglycan synthesis. This binding between the beta-lactam ring and PBPs stops the cell wall synthesis and thereby leading to the cell lysis.
Azithromycin is a semi-synthetic antibiotic drug belonging to the subclass of macrolides of azalides. Azithromycin has a structure similar to that of erythromycin, only with a higher efficacy and longer durability. This isnít a beta-lactam antibiotic.
Azithromycin works by blocking the protein synthesis in the bacteria. It is through this process, the components necessary for the survival of the bacteria, are synthesized. Azithromycin specifically binds to the 50S subunit of the 70S ribosome and thereby stops the expression of the proteins, eventually leading to the death of the bacterial cells.
Role of lactic acid bacillus in this formulation is to kill the harmful bacteria and improving the functioning of the immune system.
