Vantin - Pharmacology:

Vantin is active against a wide spectrum of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Vantin is stable in the presence of beta-lactamase enzymes. As a result, many organisms resistant to penicillins and cephalosporins, due to their production of beta-lactamase, may be susceptible to cefpodoxime. Vantin is inactivated by certain extended spectrum beta-lactamases. The bactericidal activity of cefpodoxime results from its inhibition of cell wall synthesis.
