Cefoxitin: A Second Generation Cephem Antibiotic against beta-Lactamase

Cefoxitin and its sodium salt [C3602] are semi-synthetic antibiotic that are derived from cephamycin C which is produced by Streptomyces lactamdurans. Cefoxitins have bactericidal activity against a wide range of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria including aerobes and anaerobes.1-3) Cefoxitins are second generation cephem antibiotics which act by inhibition bacterial cell wall synthesis. Due to the presence of a 7-α methoxy group in the β-lactam ring, cefoxitins exhibit a high degree of stability in the presence of beta-lactamases. In addition, cefoxitin disk diffusion method has been used for the tests for routine detection of all classes of MRSA.4,5)
