Cefathiamidine is a semi-synthetic cephalosporin antibiotic.
Mechanism of action :
Cefathiamidine is a first generation cephalosporin antibiotic.
Cefathiamidine, like the penicillins, is a beta-lactam antibiotic.
By binding to specific penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) located
inside the bacterial cell wall, it inhibits the third and last
stage of bacterial cell wall synthesis. Cell lysis is then mediated
by bacterial cell wall autolytic enzymes such as autolysins.
