Cephems and Cephalosporins: Cefepime, Cefoperazone
, Cefotaxime, Cefuroxime, Ceftazidime, Ceftriaxone, Cephalexin, Cephradine, Cefaclor, Cefixime.
 Cefepime/tazobactam interpretative criteria was not available, Cefoperazone
and Cefepime zone size as per CLSI 2018 was used to interpret these two drug combinations (CLSI 2018).
Patients with cUTI who often requires intravenous antibiotic therapy, treatment with third-generation cephalosporins (i.e., Cefotaxime and Cefoperazone
) can help to decrease the risk and cost of disease progression.
Linezolid, Vancomycin, Amoxycillin, Cefoperazone
and Meropenem are the most effective antibiotics for treating post-surgical wound infections.
The antibiotics and their concentrations used were Ampicillin (25[micro]), Amoxicillin/ Clavulanic acid (30[micro]g), Cefoperazone
(75[micro]), Ceftriaxone (30[micro]), Cefotaxime (10[micro]g), Cephalexin (30[micro]), Chloramphenicol (30[micro]), Ciprofloxacin (30[micro]), Co-Trimoxazole (30[micro]), Enrofloxacin (10[micro]), Gentamicin (20[micro]), Levofloxacin (5[micro]), Penicillin G (10 units) and Tetracycline (30[micro]).
The different anti-microbials tested were piperacillin (100 ug), ceftazidime (30 ug), amikacin (30 ug), piperacillin-tazobactam (100/10 ug), imipenem (10 ug), ciprofloxacin (5 ug), cefepime (30 ug), ceftriaxone (30 ug), aztreonam (30 ug) and cefoperazone
For the combination of cefoperazone/sulbactam, there are no standards specified by the CLSI or the European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (EUCAST) for the sulbactam concentration to be used in agar dilution or disk diffusion tests, and interpretations usually take into account the MICs of cefoperazone
(CFZ), (6R, 7R)-7-[[(2R)-[[(4-ethyl-2, 3-dioxo-1-piperazinyl) carbonyl] amino] (4 hydroxy phenyl) acetyl] amino]-3-[[(1-methyl-1H-tetrazol-5-yl) thio] methyl]-8-oxo-5-thia-1-azabicyclo [4.2.0] oct-2-ene-2-carboxylic acid (Figure 1), has been combined with SBT in a dosage form (Sulperazone[R] or Peractam[R]) for intra-abdominal infections .
The agar dilution method was used to evaluate the susceptibility of the isolated pathogens to cefoperazone
The majority of tested strains were resistant to cefotaxime (94.1%) amikacin (90.2%) cefritaxone (88.2%) GM (82.4%) and CAZ (60.8%), and almost half of all tested strains were resistant to cefoperazone
(49.0%), PIP (45.1%) and cefepime (45.1%).
Austin, TX, August 27, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Bioo Scientific's MaxSignal[R] Beta-Lactam ELISA Test Kit has been validated for the screening of a wide range of beta-lactam antibiotics including ampicillin, penicillin G, amoxicillin, azlocillin, piperacillin, nafcillin, cloxacillin, oxacillin, cefoperazone
, ceftiofur and other beta-lactams in a number of food matrices.
Antimicrobial agents and medium: Standard (Oxoid) discs of Amikacin (30 [micro]g), Cefoperazone
(75 [micro]g), Ceftriaxone (30 [micro]g), Ciprofloxacin (5 [micro]g), Colistin (10 [micro]g), Fosfomycin (50 [micro]g), imipenem (10 [micro]g), Polymixin B (300units), Mueller Hinton Agar (Oxoid UK) and Mueller Hinton broth (Oxoid UK) were used.
