RE>cefachlor-what is it?
Meagan-cefachlor is -I think- another spelling of cefaclor, a semisynthetic
cephalosporin antibiotic. Cephalosporins are another class of beta lactam
antibiotics which work, like penicillin, by inhibiting cell wall formation to
various degrees. I found this on page 293 of the 11th edition of the Merck
Index. In that entry there are several more references for in vitro activity,
clinical studies, etc. Good luck with your final! walter may at merck.com
