Lenapenem – Uses, Dosage, Side Effects, Interaction

Lenapenem is a broad-spectrum, carbapenem antibiotic with bactericidal activity. Lenapenem binds to penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) located on the bacterial cell wall, thereby inhibiting the final transpeptidation step in the synthesis of peptidoglycan, an essential component of the bacterial cell wall. This inhibition Read More ….>

Imipenem – Uses, Dosage, Side Effects, Interactions

Imipenem is a semisynthetic thienamycin that has a wide spectrum of antibacterial activity against gram-negative and gram-positive aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, including many multiresistant strains.
