What is Ertapenem

Ertapenem is a carbapenem antibiotic marketed by Merck as Invanz reg;. It is structurally very similar to meropenem in that it possess a 1-beta-methyl group. (Wikipedia)

Ertapenem mechanism of action

The bactericidal activity of ertapenem results from the inhibition of cell wall synthesis and is mediated through ertapenem binding to penicillin binding proteins (PBPs). In i Escherichia coli /i , it has strong affinity toward PBPs 1a, 1b, 2, 3, 4 and 5 with preference for PBPs 2 and 3. Ertapenem is stable against hydrolysis by a variety of beta-lactamases, including penicillinases, and cephalosporinases and extended spectrum beta-lactamases. Ertapenem is hydrolyzed by metallo-beta-lactamases.
