Oxacillin sodium is a freely soluble (50 mg/mL) narrow spectrum β-lactam antibiotic of the penicillin class. Oxacillin is used primarily against gram positive organisms namely resistant Staphylococcus species.

β-lactams interfere with PBP (penicillin binding protein) activity involved in the final phase of peptidoglycan synthesis. PBP’s are enzymes which catalyze a pentaglycine crosslink between alanine and lysine residues providing additional strength to the cell wall. Without a pentaglycine crosslink, the integrity of the cell wall is severely compromised and ultimately leads to cell lysis and death. Resistance to β-lactams is commonly due to cells containing plasmid encoded β-lactamases. Oxacillin however, is resistant to the degradative effects of β-lactamases.
