Preferred Name: Fosfomycin Tromethamine

Definition: The tromethamine salt form of fosfomycin, a synthetic broad-spectrum antibiotic. Fosfomycin tromethamine binds to and inactivates the enzyme enolpyruvyl transferase. This leads to an irreversible blockage of the condensation of uridine diphosphate-N-acetylglucosamine with p-enolpyruvate, which is one of the first steps of bacterial cell wall synthesis, thereby eventually causing cell lysis. In addition, fosfomycin tromethamine reduces the adherence of bacteria to uroepithelial cells. (NCI05)
