It works by preventing the formation of the bacterial protective covering which is essential for the survival of bacteria in the human body. Clavulanic Acid is a beta-lactamase inhibitor which blocks the action of enzymes produced by bacteria to inactivate Cefuroxime . Addition of Clavulanic Acid reduces resistance and enhances the activity of Cefuroxime against bacteria.
