Cephalosporins have a six membered sulfur containing ring adjoining a ß lactam ring. Cefixime is effective in a large variety of bacterial infections, such as respiratory tract, ear, skin, gonorrhea, otitis media, and urinary tract infections.Cefiget 400mg capsule is indicated in the treatment of the following infections when caused by the susceptible strains of the designated microorganisms:

  • Uncomplicated gonorrhoea (cervical/urethral) caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae.

Third generation Cephalosporins

Cefiget 400mg capsule is a third generation semisynthetic cephalosporin antibiotic for oral administration. It is bactericidal against a broad spectrum of gram positive and gram negative bacteria at easily achievable plasma concentrations. It kills bacteria by interfering in the synthesis of bacterial cell wall. It is highly stable in the presence of Beta-lactamase enzyme. As a result, many organisms resistant to penicillins and some cephalsporins due to the presence of beta-lactamases, may be susceptible to Cefixime. Absorption of it is about 40% to 50% whether administered with or without food.

It is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections.
