ABSTRACT:
Cefadroxil, a first-generation cephalosporin antibiotic, is used to treat urinary tract infections, skin and skin structure infections, pharyngitis and tonsillitis. Like all beta-lactam antibiotics, cefadroxil binds to specific penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) located inside the bacterial cell wall, causing the inhibition of the third and last stage of bacterial cell wall synthesis. This article examines published analytical techniques that are reported so far for determination of cefadroxil in bulk and pharmaceutical formulation. They included various techniques likes Spectroscopy, First order, Second order, Colorimetry, High Performance Liquid Chromatography, High Performance Thin Layer chromatography and FTIR.
KEYWORDS:
Cefadroxil, Analytical methods.
