Properties :
Clavumox contains two synergistically active drugs:
* Amoxycillin is a semisyhthetic antibiotic with a broad spectrum of bactericidal
activity against G + ve & G –ve organisms.
* Clavulanic acid is a ß-lactam structurally related to penicillins. It possesses the
ability to inactivate a wide range of ß-lactamase enzymes that found in
microorganisms resistant to penicillins & Cephalosporins.
So Clavumox protects Amoxicillin from degradation by ß-lactamses and
effectively extends the antibiotic spectrum to include many bacteria normally
resistant to amoxicillin and other ß-lactam antibiotics.

Clavumox is indicated in the treatment of all infections caused by
susceptible micro-organisms mainly:
