About Cifran CT Tablet 10’s

Gram-negative organisms, on the other hand, cause infections like pneumonia, bloodstream infections, wound or surgical site infections, and meningitis (inflammation of membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord). Anaerobes are responsible for causing skin and soft tissue infections. Examples of infection caused by protozoa include dysentery (inflammation of the colon) and malaria.
