Description

Ceftibuten is a semisynthetic, beta-lactamase-stable, third-generation cephalosporin with antibacterial activity. Ceftibuten binds to and inactivates penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) located on the inner membrane of the bacterial cell wall. This results in the weakening of the bacterial cell wall and causes cell lysis.
