TICARSET is a sterile injectable antibacterial combination consisting of the semisynthetic antibiotic ticarcillin disodium and the β-lactamase inhibitor clavulanate potassium (the potassium salt of clavulanic acid) for intravenous administration. Ticarcillin and clavulanic acid is a combination medicine used to treat many different infections caused by bacteria, such as urinary tract infections, bone and joint infections, stomach infections, skin infections, and others.
Ticarcillin 3g + Clavulanic Acid 100mg
MODE OF ACTION:
Ticarcillin’s principal mechanism of action revolves around its capacity to prevent the cross-linking of peptidoglycan during bacterial cell wall synthesis. Consequently, when the offending bacteria attempt to undergo cell division, cell death occurs.
Clavulanic acid contains a beta-lactam ring in its structure that binds in an irreversible fashion to beta-lactamases, preventing them from inactivating certain beta-lactam antibiotics, with efficacy in treating susceptible gram-positive and gram-negative infections.
