CLOFORT contains cefaclor, a cephalosporin antibacterial given by mouth similarly to cefalexin in the treatment of susceptible infections including upper and lower respiratory-tract infections, skin infections, and urinary-tract infections in Kenya. Some classify cefaclor as a second-generation cephalosporin and its greater activity against Haemophilus influenzae makes it more suitable than cefalexin for the treatment of infections such as otitis media.
