Ceftriaxone Sodium - Chemical & Pharmaceuticals - Pharmaceutical
Ceftriaxone Sodium is an antibiotic, a third-generation cephalosporin. It has broad-spectrum activity against Gram-positive bacteria and expanded Gram-negative coverage. lt is useful for the treatment of a number of bacterial infections, includeing ear infections, skin infections, urinary tract infections, pneumonia, gonorrhea, pelvic inflammatory disease, bone and joint infections, intra-abdominal infections, and meningitis and so on. It is used preoperatively to reduce the risk of postoperative infections. It inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis by means of binding to the penicillin-binding proteins. It is a stimulator of EAAT2 expression with neuroprotective effects in both in vitro and in vivo models, which is based in part on its ability to inhibit neuronal cell death by glutamate excitotoxicity. It may have potential to manipulate glutamate transmission and ameliorate neurotoxicity. It is administered by intravenous or intramuscular injection.
