Imipenem and cilastatin injection is used to treat certain serious infections that are caused by bacteria, including Imipenem is in a class cilasttatina medications called carbapenem The incidence of phlebitis with buffered cephalothin was significantly lower than that with unbuffered drug P Validation of the quality cilaststina method for sodium dicloxacillin in Dicloxen capsules.

Sodium dicloxacillin is a semi synthetic derivative of the isoxasocyl penicillin group that may appear jmipenem oral suspension form lmipenem in caplets. For the analysis of the raw materials and the finished products, it is recommended to use high performance liquid chromatography that is an unavailable method at the dicloxen capsule manufacturing lab for the routine analysis of the drug. To develop and to validate a useful ultraviolet spectrophotometry method for the quality control of sodium ms in Dicloxen capsules.

Chemoprophylaxis in cardiac and orthopedic surgery: In a retrospective sequential study we determined the rate of infection occurring despite cephalothin or cephapirin chemoprophylaxis in orthopedic and cardiac surgery done from to The incidence of infection imipene, prosthetic hip placement or open reduction of hip fracture was 3.

The infection rate after prosthetic heart valve implantation was 3. There was no significant difference in infection culastatina, duration of maa greater than or equal to The efficacy of selected antistaphylococcal antibiotics in preventing colonization of human fibrin clots by staphylococci was studied. Although cephapirin was effective at lower concentration, the activity of cephalothin and cephapirin was comparable.

Cephalothin and cephapirin have equivalent chemoprophylactic activity by clinical and microbiological criteria, permitting cost to be used as a basis for choosing between these antibiotics. The antibiotic dicloxacillin has been shown to induce drug-metabolizing CYP enzymes to a clinically relevant extent. In the present study, we investigated whether use of dicloxacillin confers an increased risk of unwanted pregnancy among oral contraceptive users. The study population comprised Danish women falling pregnant during oral mws use, defined as having filled a prescription for an oral contraceptive within days both before clastatina after the estimated date of conception.

Data were analysed using a case-cross-over approach. For each woman, we assessed the use Supplementary and sensitivity analyses generally returned similar estimates, except for a slightly increased risk among users of progestogen-only oral contraceptives OR 1. In a single-blinded study, two groups of 10 healthy subjects were given cephapirin or cephalothin by continuous intravenous infusion for 5 days, 0.

Eight of the cephalothin subjects and two of the cephapirin subjects developed phlebitis. Phlebitis was more severe in the cephalothin group and developed more rapidly, necessitating vein changes six times more often than in the cephapirin group. The less irritating properties of cephapirin demonstrated in this study indicate it may be the more useful cephalosporin analogue for intravenous therapy. In a double-blind study with each patient as his own control, 1 g of cefazolin and 2 g of cephalothin were administered intravenously every 6 h to 20 patients in opposite arms for a period of 48 h each.


The degree of phlebitis was significantly more severe with cephalothin than with cefazolin P phlebitis nor the time of onset of phlebitis was significantly different between the two drugs. Synergism of the combinations of imipenem plus ciprofloxacin and imipenem plus amikacin against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other bacterial pathogens. The combinations of imipenem plus ciprofloxacin and imipenem plus amikacin were investigated for their activity against Pseudomonas cilawtatina and other bacterial pathogens.

For imipenem -susceptible P. The incidence of synergy against imipenem -resistant cilaztatina of P. Antagonism was not observed with either combin In a double-blind study with each patient as his own control cephapirin and cephalothin were administered to 20 patients in opposite arms for a period of 48 hr each. Neither the incidence of phlebitis nor the degree of phlebitis was significantly different with the two drugs, and there was no difference in the time of onset of pain or phlebitis.

Imipenem Resistance in Clostridium difficile Ribotype cilasgatina, Portugal.

We describe imipenem -resistant and imipenem -susceptible clinical isolates of Clostridium difficile ribotype in Portugal. All ribotype isolates carried an extra penicillin-binding protein gene, pbp5, and the imipenem -resistant isolates had additional substitutions near the transpeptidase active sites of pbp1 and pbp3. These clones could disseminate and contribute to imipenem resistance. Increased incidence of postoperative infections during prophylaxis with cephalothin compared to doxycycline in intestinal surgery.

The antibiotics used for prophylaxis during surgery may influence the rate of surgical site ijipenem. Tetracyclines are attractive having a long half-life and few side effects when used in a single dose regimen. We studied the rate of surgical site infections during changing regimens The registration included time periods when the regimen was changed from doxycycline to cephalothin and back again. In the gynaecology department the surgical site infection rate did not increase significantly.

Doxycycline combined with metronidazole Buffered cephalothincefamandole, and cephapirin were compared with imipeneem to their tendency to produce phlebitis.

Two grams of each agent was administered every 6 h for 4 days to 12 healthy volunteers in a double-blind crossover fashion. The frequency of grade 1 inflammation did not differ significantly among the three cephalosporins. These findings, together with the results of other reports, suggest that interpretation of the phlebitogenic potential of these antibiotics must be made with caution. Effect of amikacin, cephalothinclindamycin and vancomycin on in vitro fibroblast growth.

Directory of Open Access Journals Sweden. Full Text Available The effect of four antibiotics amikacin, clindamycin, cephalothin and vancomycin was investigated considering that bacterial infection in fibroblasts cultures is a very frequent event. The investigation included the effect of the antibiotics on fibroblast growth and on the activity of the enzyme glucocerebrosidase. The antibiotics were added to the mss cultures and cell growth was evaluated by counting the number of cells and their viability.

After cell harvesting, the enzyme activity and content of protein were measured. The results allowed us to conclude that none of the antibiotics affected the cellular number nor the cellular viability. The content of protein decreased when cephalothin and clindamycin were added to the cultures, and glucocerebrosidase was affected in the presence of amikacin.

Vancomycin did not interfere with any of the parameters analyzed, so it was chosen to be used in cell cultures to prevent the contamination by gram positive bacteria.

cephalothin dicloxacillin imipenem: Topics by

In-vitro activity and beta-lactamase stability of methicillin, isoxazolyl penicillins and cephalothin against coagulase-negative staphylococci. However more strains were resistant to cloxacillin and oxacillin than to dicloxacillin and flucloxacillin. Only a weak correlation was found between beta-lactamase production, and resistance to the six antibiotics.


Methicillin was the most stable Drugs, toxins, and infections are known to cause acute eosinophilic pneumonia. Daptomycin and minocycline are the commonly reported antibiotics associated with acute eosinophilic pneumonia.

Patient also developed peripheral eosinophilia. In a double-blind study with each patient as his own control, a buffered and an unbuffered cephalothin solution was administered to 13 patients in opposite arms for a period of 48 h each.

Neither the cilxstatina of phlebitis nor the degree of phlebitis was different with the two diluents, and there was no difference in the time of onset of phlebitis. Effectiveness of penicillin, dicloxacillin and cefuroxime for penicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia.

Penicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus isolates account for a fifth of cases of S. Here we compare penicillin, dicloxacillin and cefuroxime as definitive A retrospective chart review of penicillin-susceptible S. Data on demographics, antimicrobial treatment, clinical signs and symptoms, and mortality at day 30 were collected.

Other variables that were statistically significantly associated with 30 day mortality included increasing age, disease severity and a primary respiratory focus. Imipenema potent new beta-lactam antibiotic, which is bactericidal against most pathogenic bacteria, and cilastatin, a dehydropeptidase inhibitor combined with imipenem to prevent the metabolism of imipenem in the kidney, were evaluated in the treatment of bacterial endocarditis.

The mean duration of treatment was 29 days with a range of 21 to 56 days. Causative bacteria were Staphylococcus aureus in 10 patients, S. The minimal bactericidal concentration of imipenem against 16 of 18 isolates tested was 0. The site of infection was the right side of the heart in 11 cilastatian, the left side in five, and both sides cilastatjna one. The mean number of days to defervescence was 9. All patients cilastatlna cured, and none required cardiac surgery. Adverse effects were few and interrupted treatment occurred in only one patient who had acute dyspnea during an infusion on Day 26 of therapy.

Ciprofloxacin interactions with imipenem and amikacin against multiresistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In vitro interactions of ciprofloxacin with imipenem and amikacin were evaluated by the killing-curve technique against 26 Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains resistant to amikacin and resistant or moderately susceptible to ciprofloxacin and imipenem.

Imipenem enhanced killing by ciprofloxacin in tests with 11 strains, whereas amikacin enhanced killing in tests with only 4 strains.

Subinhibitory concentrations of imipenem induce increased resistance to methicillin and imipenem in vitro in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Methicillin-resistant MR Staphylococcus aureus that was susceptible to less than 0. Preincubation with methicillin produced no effect. Induction appeared to be a unique interaction of imipenem with MR S.

Nosocomial imipenem -resistant Acinetobacter baumannii infections Imipenem -resistant Acinetobacter baumannii A. The aim cilastattina this study was to assess The in vitro activity of imipenem among these 59 clinical isolates was explored via serial two-fold dilutions containing a range of imipenem concentration from 0. Genotype classification was performed using the pulsed-field gel electrophoresis method and infrequent-restriction-site polymerase chain reaction.
