Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Ceftriaxone works by inhibiting synthesis in the bacterial cell wall and in addition, binds to carboxypeptidases, endopeptidases, and transpeptidases (enzymes involved in cell-wall synthesis and cell division) in the bacterial cytoplasmic membrane. Ceftriaxone results in the formation of defective cell walls and cell death.
