Pneumonia is an infection which causes inflammation in the air sac producing cough with phlegm and shortness of breath. Pyelonephritis is a urinary tract infection affecting the urinary bladder later gets spreads to the kidneys. Bacteraemia is an infectious condition indicating presence of bacteria in the blood stream.

Bacterial meningitis is an infection caused by bacteria in the region surrounding the brain. Neutropenic is low levels of neutrophils (a type of white blood cells) in our body.

USES OF TAZOLIFE INJECTION

It is used to treat the following infections:

  • intra-abdominal infection such as appendicitis and peritonitis
  • skin and skin structure infection such as cutaneous abscesses, cellulitis, diabetic foot

  • management of neutropenia associated with fever

HOW TAZOLIFE INJECTION WORKS

TAZOLIFE INJECTION works by destroying the bacterial growth responsible for causing infections. Piperacillin works by interrupting the cell wall formation by binding with the enzymes responsible for cell wall synthesis. This binding causes defects in the cell wall leading to cell death causing death of the organism. Tazobactam is responsible for the irreversible termination of enzymes (beta- lactamases) that protect the organism from antibiotics and produces less anti-bacterial actions when given alone so it’s always used in combination with other antibiotics. Thus, both the substances works by preventing cell growth and function inhibiting bacterial growth.
