Keftab is an antibiotic of the broad-spectrum action from the group of cephalosporin. This is a beta-lactam antibiotic which is resistant to acid environment and is not affected by the action of special enzymes beta-lactamase.
Keftab contains an active ingredient Cephalexin which provides a bactericidal action as to pathogenic microflora. In medical practice, Keftab is used for the treatment of the inflammatory and infectious processes of the middle severity: Pharyngitis, sinusitis, otitis media, bronchitis, pneumonia, cystitis, urethritis, prostatitis, vaginitis, furunculosis, osteomyelitis, etc.
