Sulbactam Sodium 69388-84-7 Sterile With GMP
Sulbactam sodium is a beta-lactamase inhibitor with very weak antibacterial action. The compound prevents antibiotic destruction of beta-lactam antibiotics by inhibiting beta-lactamases, thus extending their spectrum activity. Combinations of sulbactam with beta-lactam antibiotics have been used successfully for the therapy of infections caused by organisms resistant to the antibiotic alone.
Sulbactam Sodium is the sodium salt form of sulbactam, a beta-lactam with weak antibacterial property. Sulbactam sodium contains a beta-lactam ring and irreversibly binds to beta-lactamase at or near its active site, thereby blocking enzyme activity and preventing metabolism of other beta-lactam antibiotics. Combining this agent with a beta-lactamase sensitive antibiotic such as penicillins and cephalosporins against penicillinase-producing and beta-lactamase-producing organisms, results in a decreased turnover rate of the sensitive antibiotic and enhances its antibacterial property.
