Mechanism of Action of Drugs

Cefpodoxime is active against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. It primarily targets the primary constituent of bacterial cell walls- thus leads to the inhibition of cell wall synthesis and eventually results in cell death.

Beta-lactamases are enzymes produced in bacteria which protect themselves from the action of antibiotics. Here, Clavulanic Acid acts by destroying or inhibiting this beta-lactamase therefore reducing the antibiotic activity of the bacteria and allows any external antibiotic sources to work.
