The pharmacodynamics
the Tsefalosporinovy antibiotic of the II generation of a broad spectrum of activity, has bactericidal effect at the expense of inhibition of synthesis of a cell wall of bacteria. Zotsef acetylates membrane-bound transpeptidases, breaking, thus, the cross stitching of peptidoglikan necessary for ensuring durability and rigidity of a cell wall.
It is highly active concerning gram-negative bacteria: Escherichia coli, Haemophilus influenzae, Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Proteus mirabilis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Enterobacter spp. It is active also concerning gram-positive bacteria: Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp.
