Cefditoren pivoxil is a semi-synthetic cephalosporin antibiotic for oral administration. It is a 3rd generation cephalosporin that is FDA approved for the treatment of acute bacterial exacerbation of chronic bronchitis, community acquired pneumonia, infection of skin and/or subcutaneous tissue, and pharyngitis/tonsillitis. Cefditoren is a cephalosporin with antibacterial activity against gram-positive and gram-negative pathogens. The bactericidal activity of cefditoren results from the inhibition of cell wall synthesis via affinity for penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs). Common adverse reactions include diarrhea, nausea and candida vaginitis. Co-administration of a single dose of an antacid which contained both magnesium (800 mg) and aluminum (900 mg) hydroxides or co-administration of a single dose of intravenously administered famotidine (20 mg) reduced the oral absorption of a single 400 mg dose of cefditoren pivoxil administered following a meal. Co-administration of probenecid with cefditoren pivoxil resulted in an increase in the plasma exposure of cefditoren.   NCATS
