About Sporidex® DT

Rating of sales:          


Sporidex® DT is manufactured by Sun Pharma and comprises Cephalexin as an active ingredient. Cephalexin is a semisynthetic, beta-lactam antibiotic of a drug class called Cephalosporins (1st generation).


- upper respiratory tract infections (pharyngitis, otitis media);

- bone infections (osteomyelitis);

- genitourinary infections (cystitis, pyelonephritis, prostatitis);

MOA (mechanism of action):

Cephalexin is a bactericidal antibiotic which inhibits the bacteria cell walls synthesis. This results in the cell walls rupture and bacteria eventually die.

Cephalexin is active against aerobes gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus (penicillinase-producing strains), Streptococcus pneumoniae (penicillin-susceptible strains), Streptococcus pyogenes); aerobes gram-negative (Escherichia coli, Haemophilus influenzae, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Moraxella (Branhamella) catarrhalis, Proteus mirabilis).
