Pharmacodynamic properties: FEDROX (Cefadroxil) binds to penicillin-binding protein (PBPs) and inhibits the transpeptidation step of peptidoglycan synthesis in bacterial cell wall, thus inhibiting biosynthesis and arresting cell wall assembly. This causes formation of a defective cell wall that is osmotically unstable, resulting in bacterial cell death.
