Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects Click here for help
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.
