Most ESBL are mutant of classical TEM-1, TEM-2 and SHV-3 [beta]-lactamase types and, unlike these parents enzymes, ESBL hydrolyses oxyimino-aminothiazolyl cephalosporins such as cefuroxime, cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, ceftizoxime, ceftazidime cefpirome and cefeprine as well as penicillins and other cephalosporins except cephamycins (2).

or Single-dose cephalosporin regimens (other than ceftriaxone 125 mg IM) include ceftizoxime (500 mg IM), cefoxitin (2 g IM with probenecid 1 g orally), and cefotaxime (500 mg IM).
Alternatives include intravenous cefotaxime, 1 g every 8 hours; IV ceftizoxime, 1 g every 8 hours; or IM spectinomycin, 2 g twice daily Intravenous ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin are good choices for patients allergic to [beta]-lac-tam antibiotics.
Lamivudine would be artifactually increased in the presence of cefotetan and ceftizoxime, and didanosine would be artifactually increased in the presence of ceftizoxime and metronidazole.
