Augmentin (beta-lactam antibacterial penicillin co-formualted with a beta-lactamase inhibitor) is an antibiotic agent with a notably broad spectrum of activity against commonly occurring bacterial pathogens in general practice and hospital. The beta-lactamase inhibitory action of Clavulante extends the spectrum of amoxycillin to embrace a wider range of organisms, including many resistant to other beta-lactam antibiotics. Amoxycillin is a semisynthetic antibiotic with a broad spectrum of antibacterial activity against many gram-positive and gram-negative microogranisms. Amoxycillin is, however, susceptible to degradation by beta-lactamases and therefore the spectrum of activity of amoxycillin alone does not include organisms which produce these enzymes. Clavulanic acid is a beta-lactam, structurally related to the penicillins, which possesses the ability to inactivate a wide range of beta-lactamase enzymes commonly found in micro-organisms resistant to penicillins and cephalosporins. In particular, it has good activity the clinically important plasmid mediated beta-lactamases frequently responsible for transferred drug resistance. It is generally less effective against chromosomally-meditated type 1 beta-lactamases. The presence of clavulanic acid in Augmentin formulations protects amoxycillin from degradation by beta-lactamase enzymes and effectively extends the antibacterial spectrum of amoxycillin to include many bacteria normally resistant to amoxycillin and other penicillins and cephalosporins. Thus Augmentin possesses the distinctive properties of a broad spectrum antibiotic and a beta-lactamase inhibitor. Augmentin is bactericidal to a wide range of organisms.
