Ceflax (Cephalexin Water Soluble Powder)
Ceflax is Cephalexin – a cephalosporin antibiotic, and is active against Gram positive bacteria, including the penicillinase-producing strains of Staphylococcus aureus and various Gram negative bacteria. The method of action is based on inactivation of the enzyme transpeptidase that is responsible for the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall.
Cephalexin is well absorbed after oral administration. Absorption is delayed in the presence of food particles and results in lower serum concentrations.
The use of cephalexin is indicated in bacterial infections caused by bacteria sensitive to cephalexin, Such as Staphylococcus spp, Streptococcus spp, Clostridium spp, E.Coli, Proteus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella spp and Klebsiella spp.
