Cefalexin (INN, BAN) or cephalexin (USAN, AAN) /ˌsɛfəˈlɛksɨn/ is an antibiotic useful for the treatment of a number of bacterial infections. It is taken by mouth and is active against gram positive bacteria and some gram negative bacteria. It is in the class of first generation cephalosporins and has similar activity to other agents within this group including the intravenous agent cefazolin. –Editor's choicemore
Ciprofloxacin (INN) is an antibiotic useful for the treatment of a number of bacterial infections. It is a second-generation fluoroquinolone. Its spectrum of activity includes most strains of bacterial pathogens responsible for respiratory, urinary tract, gastrointestinal, and abdominal infections, including Gram-negative (Escherichia coli, Haemophilus influenzae, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Legionella pneumophila, Moraxella catarrhalis, Proteus mirabilis, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa), and Gram-positive (methicillin-sensitive but not methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Enterococcus faecalis, and Streptococcus pyogenes) bacterial pathogens. Ciprofloxacin and other fluoroquinolones are valued for this broad spectrum of activity, excellent tissue penetration, and for their availability in both oral and intravenous formulations. –Editor's choicemore
