|Actions||Pharmacology Resistance to many antibiotics is caused by β-lactamase enzymes which destroy the antibiotic before it can act on the bacteria. The clavulanate in Juroclav counteracts this defence mechanism by inactivating the β-lactamases, thus rendering the organisms sensitive to amoxicillin's rapid bactericidal effect at concentrations readily attainable in the body.Microbiology In vitro , Juroclav is active against a wide range of clinically important bacteria, including Gram-positive bacteria: Staphylococcus sp. (including β-lactamase producing strains), Corynebacterium sp. and Streptococcus sp.; Gram-negative bacteria: Escherichia coli (including β-lactamase producing strains), Salmonella sp. (including β-lactamase producing strains), Bordetella bronchiseptica, Pasteurella, Proteus mirabilis and other sensitive strains and Klebsiella. Juroclav is not indicated for cases involving Pseudomonas sp.|

For the majority of infections, including those of the skin, urinary tract and gastrointestinal tract, the above dosing regimen has been found to be effective. Refractory cases, however, particularly those of the respiratory tract, have shown improved cure rates by doubling the dose to 25 mg/kg bodyweight twice daily.Duration of therapy. Routine cases involving all indications. Therapy should be continued for five to seven days, or for 48 hours after all symptoms have subsided. Chronic or refractory cases. In cases where there is considerable tissue damage, a longer course of therapy may be required to allow sufficient time for damaged tissue to repair.
