Sulbactam Sodium

About Sulbactam Sodium
An irreversible ?-lactamase inhibitor, To increase the antibacterial activity of penicillins and cephalosporins against ?-lactamase?producing organisms.
Mechanism of Action of Sulbactam Sodium
Sulbactam has no significant antimicrobial activity, despite sharing the ?-lactam ring that is characteristic of beta-lactam antibiotics. This similarity in chemical structure helps the Sulbactam to act as a competitive inhibitor of beta-lactamase enzyme secreted by certain bacteria that are resistant to beta-lactam antibiotics. This inhibition restores the antibacterial activity of beta-lactam antibiotics against ?-lactamase-secreting resistant bacteria.It is usually given in combination with Amoxycillin.
It is used to increase the antibacterial spectrum of penicillin and cephalosporin against penicillinase-producing and beta-lactamase-producing organisms such as Staphylococcus aureus, H. flu, Moraxella catarrhalis that are resistant to Ampicillin alone.
