Answer

Anti-infectives

These agents treat skin and skin structure infections caused by susceptible organisms.

Cephalexin (Keflex, Biocef)

Cephalexin is a first-generation cephalosporin that arrests bacterial growth by inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis. Cephalexin has bactericidal activity against rapidly growing organisms. Its primary activity is against skin flora, and it is used for skin infections or prophylaxis in minor procedures.
