Ampicillin is a semi-synthetic compound derived from 6-aminopenicillanic acid which is characterized by its broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity. ß-lactam antibiotics exert their bactericidal effects by preventing the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall and disrupting its integrity. It usually results in cell death by lysis, which can be measured by bacterial autolysins. Most penicillins in aqueous solution are rapidly absorbed from the sites of parenteral application.
Ampicillin is distributed to the liver, bile, muscle, kidney and fat after absorption by the gastrointestinal system or from the site of injection. Excretion is renal and, after 6-8 hours, about 30% of the administered dose can be detected in the urine.
