Cefamandole (also known as cephamandole) is a broad-spectrum cephalosporin antibiotic. The clinically used form of cefamandole is an ester form, cefamandole nafate, a prodrug. Cefamandole is no longer available in USA, but it has prescription in UK. Cefamandole under brand name mandol is indicated for the treatment of serious infections caused by susceptible strains of the designated microorganisms such as: lower respiratory infections, including pneumonia, caused by S. pneumoniae. So as urinary tract infections caused by E. coli, Proteus spp.; peritonitis caused by E. coli and Enterobacter spp. Septicemia caused by E. coli; skin and skin structure infections caused by S. aureus; bone and joint infections caused by S. aureus (penicillinase- and non-penicillinase-producing). Like all beta-lactam antibiotics, cefamandole binds to specific penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) located inside the bacterial cell wall, causing the inhibition of the third and last stage of bacterial cell wall synthesis. Bacterial cell wall autolytic enzymes such as autolysins then mediate cell lysis; it is possible that cefamandole interferes with an autolysin inhibitor.   NCATS
