Intracef

Generic Name: Cefradine
Manufacturer: Beximco Pharmaceuticals Ltd.

Intracef contains Cefradine which is a semisynthetic first generation cephalosporin antibiotic that works in a similar way to penicillin by inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis.

Indications

Intracef is a broad spectrum bactericidal antibiotic active against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. It is also highly active against most strains of penicillinase producing staphylococci.

Intracef is indicated for the treatment of the following infections when caused by susceptible organisms.

  • The upper and lower respiratory tract infections : pharyngitis, sinusitis, otitis media, tonsillitis, laryngo-tracheo-bronchitis, acute and chronic bronchitis, lobar pneumonia
  • Gastrointestinal tract infections
  • Urinary tract infections : cystitis, urethritis, pyelonephritis
  • Skin and soft tissue infections : abscess, cellulitis, furunculosis and impetigo
  • Prophylaxis for surgical procedures associated with high risk of disastrous consequences of infection.

Precautions

There is evidence of partial cross allergenicity between penicillins and the cephalosporins. Therefore Cefradine should be used with caution in patients with known hypersensitivity to penicillins.
