Active substance:
Piperacillin sodium + Tazobactam sodium

Pharmacotherapeutic group:
Antibacterials for systemic use, Combinations of penicillins incl. beta-lactamase inhibitors;
ATC code: J01CR05

Mechanism of action:
Piperacillin, a broad-spectrum, semisynthetic penicillin exerts bactericidal activity by inhibition of both septum and cell-wall synthesis.

Tazobactam, a beta-lactam structurally related to penicillins, is an inhibitor of many beta-lactamases, which commonly cause resistance to penicillins and cephalosporins but it does not inhibit AmpC enzymes or metallo beta-lactamases. Tazobactam extends the antibiotic spectrum of piperacillin to include many beta-lactamase-producing bacteria that have acquired resistance to piperacillin alone.
