MECHANISM OF ACTION

Doripenem is a broad-spectrum carbapenem with potent in vitro antibacterial activity against aerobic and anaerobic gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria including Pseudomonas aeruginosa. It inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis by binding to penicillin-binding proteins; which in turn inhibits the final transpeptidase step of peptidoglycan synthesis in bacterial cell walls.
