Fosfomycin sodium/ Fosfomycin trometamol
Fosfona (Fosfomycin sodium, Fosfomycin trometamol) is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. Intravenous fosfomycin has been prescribed for various serious systemic infections, such as acute osteomyelitis, nosocomial lower respiratory tract infections, complicated urinary tract infections, bacterial meningitis, and bacteremia. However, it is only used when other common antibiotics cannot be used.Recently, fosfomycin has attracted renewed interest for the treatment of serious systemic infections caused by multidrug-resistant Enterobacteriaceae. Fosfomycin is used as an essential and beneficial option for serious systemic infections induced by multidrug-resistant Enterobacteriaceae.

MODE OF ACTION:
Fosfomycin is a bactericidal antibiotic agent. It inhibits an enzyme-catalyzed reaction in the first step of the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall.
It irreversibly inhibits enolpyruvate transferase (MurA), which prevents the formation of N-acetylmuramic acid, an essential element of the peptidoglycan cell wall.
This inhibitory action takes place at an earlier step than the action of β-lactams or glycopeptides.
