Cloxacillin benzathine - the benzathine salt form of a semisynthetic beta lactamase resistant penicillin antibiotic with antibacterial activity. Cloxacillin binds to and inactivates penicillin binding proteins (pbps) located on the inner membrane of the bacterial cell wall, thereby preventing the cross linkage of peptidoglycans, which are critical components of the bacterial cell wall. This leads to a weakening of the bacterial cell wall, eventually causing bacterial cell lysis.
