Drug Interaction: Cefuroxime is known to interact with other drugs like probenecid.

Mechanism Of Action: Cefuroxime, like the penicillins, is a beta-lactam antibiotic. By binding to specific penicillin-binding proteins located inside the bacterial cell wall, it inhibits the third and last stage of bacterial cell wall synthesis. Cell lysis is then mediated by bacterial cell wall autolytic enzymes such as autolysins, it is possible that cefuroxime interferes with an autolysin inhibitor.
