      Bacterial Infection

      How it works

      The bactericidal action of fosfomycin is due to its inactivation of the enzyme enolpyruvy transferase, thereby irreversibly blocking the condensation of uridine diphosphate N-acetylglucosamine with p-enolpyruvate, one of the first steps in bacterial cell wall synthesis. It also reduces adherence of bacteria to uroepithelial cells.
