Product Details:

  • Product Name: Cefoxitin Sodium
  • CAS #: 33564-30-6
  • Mode of Action:

    The bactericidal action of cefoxitin results from inhibition of cell wall synthesis.

  • Pharmacodynamics:

    Cefoxitin is a cephamycin antibiotic often grouped with the second-generation cephalosporins. It is active against a broad range of gram-negative bacteria including anaerobes. The methoxy group in the 7a position provides cefoxitin with a high degree of stability in the presence of beta-lactamases, both penicillinases and cephalosporinases, of gram-negative bacteria.

  • Metabolism:

    Minimal (approximately 85 percent of cefoxitin is excreted unchanged by the kidneys over a 6-hour period).

  • Toxicity:

    The acute intravenous LD50 in the adult female mouse and rabbit was about 8.0 g/kg and greater than 1.0 g/kg, respectively. The acute intraperitoneal LD50 in the adult rat was greater than 10.0 g/kg.
