Semisynthetic, broad-spectrum antibiotic derivative of cephalexin. .

Ranic - Pharmacology:

Ranic, like the penicillins, is a beta-lactam antibiotic. By binding to specific penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) located inside the bacterial cell wall, it inhibits the third and last stage of bacterial cell wall synthesis. Cell lysis is then mediated by bacterial cell wall autolytic enzymes such as autolysins. It is possible that cefaclor interferes with an autolysin inhibitor.

Ranic for patients

Patients should be counseled that antibacterial drugs including Ceclor should only be used to treat bacterial infections. They do not treat viral infections (e.g., the common cold). When Ceclor is prescribed to treat a bacterial infection, patients should be told that although it is common to feel better early in the course of therapy, the medication should be taken exactly as directed. Skipping doses or not completing the full course of therapy may (1) decrease the effectiveness of the immediate treatment and (2) increase the likelihood that bacteria will develop resistance and will not be treatable by Ceclor or other antibacterial drugs in the future.
