Excipients (benzoic acid, paraffin oil) ad 1 ml
Ampicillin is a broad spectrum semi-synthetic penicillin with strong action on Gram positive (Actinomyces diphteriae, Bacillus anthracis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus viridans, Staphylococcus fecalis, Staphylococcus pyogenes, Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae etc.) and Gram negative (Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, Proteus mirabilis, Salmonella spp., Brucella spp., etc.) germs. It diffuses well through placenta and concentrations reached in liver and kidney are higher than the blood levels. 80% ampicillin is excreted by kidney (as active form) and less by milk and bile.
