    Cefmetazole sodium

    $90.07 - $318.15

    Cefmetazole is a broad spectrum second generation cephalosporin antibiotic. TOKU-E offers two forms of cefmetazole: cefmetazole, free acid (C122), and cefmetazole sodium (C052). Cefmetazole is freely soluble in water 92 mg/mL.

    Mechanism of ActionLike β-lactams, cephalosporins interfere with PBP (penicillin binding protein) activity involved in the final phase of peptidoglycan synthesis. PBP’s are enzymes which catalyze a pentaglycine crosslink between alanine and lysine residues providing additional strength to the cell wall. Without a pentaglycine crosslink, the integrity of the cell wall is severely compromised and ultimately leads to cell lysis and death. Resistance to cephalosporins is commonly due to cells containing plasmid encoded β-lactamases.
    SpectrumCefmetazole is broad spectrum antibiotic targeting a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Cefmetazole is more potent against many Gram-negative enteric flora and pathogens than other first generation cephalosporins.
    Microbiology ApplicationsCefmetazole is commonly used in clinical in vitro microbiological antimicrobial susceptibility tests (panels, discs, and MIC strips) against Gram positive and Gram negative microbial isolates. Medical microbiologists use AST results to recommend antibiotic treatment options for infected patients. Representative MIC values include:

    • Bacteroides fragilis 4 μg/mL - 32 μg/mL
    • Propionibacterium acnes 0.06 μg/mL - 0.25 μg/mL
