What is Sulbactam
Sulbactam is a -lactamase inhibitor given in combination with -lactam antibiotics to inhibit -lactamase, an enzyme produced by bacteria that destroys antibiotic activity.
Sulbactam mechanism of action
Sulbactam is an irreversible inhibitor of -lactamase; by binding and inhibiting -lactamase produced by bacterial cells, sulbactam is thereby able to prevent it from reducing antibiotic activity. Although sulbactam alone possesses little useful antibacterial activity, except against the Neisseriaceae, whole organism studies have shown that sulbactam restores ampicillin activity against beta-lactamase producing strains. In particular, sulbactam has good inhibitory activity against the clinically important plasmid mediated beta-lactamases most frequently responsible for transferred drug resistance. The presence of sulbactam in formulations with ampicillin effectively extends the antibacterial spectrum of ampicillin to include many bacteria normally resistant to it and to other beta-lactam antibacterials. Thus, products with ampicillin + sulbactam possess the properties of a broad-spectrum antibacterial and a beta-lactamase inhibitor.
