Ceftizoxime

Also known as Cefizox and Zincaf

Ceftizoxime is a third-generation cephalosporin available for parenteral administration. Unlike other 3rd generation cephalosporins, in ceftizoxime the whole C-3 side chain has been removed to prevent deactivation by hydrolytic enzymes. It rather resembles cefotaxime in its properties, but is not subjected to metabolism.
