Description: Cefmetazole is a cephamycin with a nonaromatic side chain at C-7. In addition to a fairly characteristic second-generation cephalosporin antimicrobial spectrum, it possess fairly significant anti-antiaerobic activity. The ejection of its C-3 side chain leads to alcohol intolerance of the disulfuram type and prolonged clotting times.
