Active ingredients

The drug ABIOCLAV contains a combination of these active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs):

1 Amoxicillin
UNII 804826J2HU - AMOXICILLIN

Amoxicillin is a semisynthetic penicillin (beta-lactam antibiotic) that inhibits one or more enzymes (often referred to as penicillin-binding proteins, PBPs) in the biosynthetic pathway of bactericidal peptidoglycan, which is an integral structural component of the bacterial cell wall. Inhibition of peptidoglycan synthesis leads to weakening of the cell wall, which is usually followed by cell lysis and death.
