RIT (Ceftriaxone) is a sterile semi-synthetic broad spectrum 3rd generation Cephalosporin antibiotic for intravenous or intramuscular administration. The bactericidal activity of Ceftriaxone results from inhibition of cell wall synthesis. Ceftriaxone has a high degree of stability in the presence of beta-lactamase, both penicillinases and cephalosporinases of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. RIT (Ceftriaxone), like other cephalosporins and penicillins, kills bacteria by interfering with the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall. A remarkable feature of RIT (Ceftriaxone) is its relatively long plasma elimination half-life of about 6 to 9 hours, which makes single or once-daily dosage of the drug appropriate for most patients.
