Sinaclox (Cloxacillin) is a beta-lactamase resistant semisynthetic antibiotic having bactericidal activity against most gram-positive organisms and Neisseria species. It is also effective against beta lactamase producing gram negative organisms when given with Ampicillin. Cloxacillin resists the action of betalactamase by its possession of an acyl side chain, which protects beta-lactam bond by preventing the enzyme getting access to it.
