Icufos 4gm Injection consists of the active ingredient Fosfomycin Sodium indicated for various infections caused by bacteria.
Icufos 4gm Injection is active against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Sensitivity tests should be performed before starting this treatment to rule out false-positive indications of resistance.
Uses of Icufos 4gm Injection:
Icufos 4gm Injection is indicated for the treatment of bacterial infections of:
- The urinary tract (complicated urinary tract infection)
- The heart (endocarditis)
- Bones and joints (osteomyelitis)
- Lungs (pneumonia)
- Skin and tissues
- Central nervous system (bacterial meningitis)
How Icufos 4gm Injection works:
Icufos 4gm Injection inhibits enzymes released by the bacterial cell wall called enolpyruvyl transferase thereby irreversibly blocking steps crucial for cell wall synthesis. This prevents the cell wall synthesis at a very early stage and ultimately results in the death of infection-causing bacteria.
