Cefoxitin is a semisynthetic, broad-spectrum second-generation cephalosporin with antibacterial activity. The activity of cefoxitin results in the weakening of the bacterial cell wall and causes cell lysis. Cefoxitin acts by interfering with cell wall synthesis. Its activity spectrum includes a broad range of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria including anaerobes.
