Ceftas (Cefixime)

Rating of sales:          


Ceftas is a third generation oral bactericidal cephalosporin. Mechanism of action of Ceftas is similar to penicillin. Ceftas acts by inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis. Lack of bacterial cell wall results in death due to lysis of bacteria. Ceftas is used in treatment of uncomplicated urinary tract infections, otitis media, acute bronchitis, acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis, uncomplicated gonorrhoea.

VLBW-infants below 1500 g of birth weight have a quite high risk to acquire a nosocomial sepsis. 20-40% of all infants exhibit signs of nosocomial infection once during neonatal intensive care. The rate of infection is related to technique and amount of used invasive devices as to gestational age. Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CONS) and gram-negative organisms contribute most to these cases of sepsis. In a three phase study we tried to demonstrate the efficacy of different mechanisms to change the rate of nosocomial sepsis. During the first phase a strict hygienical protocol was enforced as isolation, care with sterile gloves and aseptic techniques in introducing and maintaining i.v. lines. In a second phase we started a randomized controlled study of prophylactic vancomycin (10 mg/kg/day in two doses). In a third phase we added an oral antibiotic regime with cefixime for all patients with positive cultures for gramnegative organisms under the hypothesis of translocation from the gut as the way of infection. During the first phase 23.7% of 76 patients enrolled acquired CONS-sepsis, 0.52% gramnegative sepsis. During the second phase (41 patients) 6 patients in the control group acquired CONS-sepsis, none in the vancomycin-group. The rate of gramnegative infections was not different (4 and 3 cases). During the third phase (vancomycin plus cefixime eventually in cases of positive stool cultures) no case of nosocomial sepsis occurred (35 patients, 11 positive cultures). The management used in phase 3 reduced the rate of nosocomial infections in VLBW-infants drastically.

Acute sinusitis is a common complication of upper respiratory tract infections in children. The primary causative bacteria are Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and alpha-hemolytic streptococci. Concurrent viral infection may confound interpretation of the clinical response to antimicrobial treatment. First-line antimicrobial treatment is usually with amoxicillin. The increase in frequency of beta-lactamase-producing bacteria in some communities, however, may warrant empirical treatment with other drugs such as amoxicillin/clavulanate, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, cefixime, or cefuroxime. With the marketing of newer antimicrobial drugs for treating sinusitis, it is important for physicians to understand the criteria for evaluating the efficacy of each new drug in relation to existing antimicrobial agents. Criteria for clinical and bacteriologic evaluation of new antimicrobial drugs in the treatment of sinusitis in children are described.

Cefixime was compared with amoxicillin for treatment of acute otitis media in a randomized trial. Results of tympanocentesis on day 3 to 5 of therapy were used as the major outcome. Total daily doses were 8 mg/kg of cefixime and 40 mg/kg of amoxicillin. One hundred twenty-six patients were randomly assigned to receive treatment; 64 cultures grew pathogens. Pathogens were eradicated from the middle ear after 3 to 5 days of therapy in 27 (79.4%) of 34 children given amoxicillin and 26 (86.7%) of 30 children given cefixime (p = 0.47). When Streptococcus pneumoniae cases were analyzed, bacteriologic cure occurred in 14 (93.3%) of 15 children given amoxicillin and 12 (75%) of 16 given cefixime (p = 0.333). When cases of Haemophilus influenzae infection were analyzed, significantly more cures occurred with cefixime (10/10, 100%) than amoxicillin (8/13, 62%) (p = 0.046). Pathogens associated with failure of amoxicillin therapy were H. influenzae (five cases, two beta-lactamase-positive), S. pneumoniae (one case), and Moraxella catarrhalis (one case, beta-lactamase-positive). The four failures with cefixime therapy were all in patients infected with S. pneumoniae. Rates of rash, diarrhea, and vomiting were the same in both groups and did not necessitate stopping therapy. We conclude the following: (1) Cefixime and amoxicillin were equivalent in overall clinical and bacteriologic efficacy for otitis media. (2) Cefixime was more efficacious than amoxicillin in treating H. influenzae otitis media and should be preferred when H. influenzae is the suspected etiologic agent. (3) Side effects of both drugs were mild and equivalent.

Terahertz Time-Domain Spectroscopy (THz-TDS) technique has a wide range of applications in substances identification and quantitative analysis. In the present paper, we report absorption spectra and index of refraction of 14 kinds of pure cephalosporins in 0.2-2.6 THz, in which eight kinds have apparent absorption peaks, while the others have different index of refraction. Based on these results, different kinds of antibiotics can be identified. Besides, according to THz absorption spectra of both pure sample and real pills we calculated the contents of cefixime in the two pills produced by two manufacturers. Compared with the contents marked on the package, relative errors are 9.38% and 0.92%, respectively. The results manifest that THz-TDS technique is reliable and promising in medicine detection.

Using data from postmarketing surveillance studies of six antibiotics and six antidepressants, conducted using the observational cohort technique of PEM, the number of reports of vaginal candidiasis was determined in women aged > or =16 years, in each of the first 7 weeks following a prescription for one of these drugs. The relative risks for vaginal candidiasis following the use of these antibiotics and for each of the individual antibiotics compared with antidepressants were calculated for each week and for the overall 7-week period. Women treated with antidepressants were the most suitable comparator group from the PEM database, as they were of a similar age range and the studies were conducted at a similar time period to those of the antibiotics. Also, there was no pharmacological plausibility for vaginal candidiasis being associated with antidepressants.

The biliary excretion profile of cefixime was studied in 10 patients provided with T-tube drainage of the common bile duct after cholecystectomy. Following a single 200-mg oral dose, the peak concentration of cefixime in bile reached 56.9 +/- 70 mg/liter, approximately 20 times as high as the peak concentration in serum, 2.3 +/- 0.85 mg/liter. Cefixime levels in bile proved relatively sustained, since a concentration of 4.3 +/- 3.7 mg/liter was still found 20 h after dosing. The cumulative amount of cefixime recovered in the 24-h bile drainage averaged 10.0 +/- 12.3 mg, which is 5% of the administered dose and positions this beta-lactam antibiotic among the most highly bile-excreted cephalosporins. The presented results show that a single 200-mg oral dose of cefixime provided drug levels in bile consistently higher than the MICs for the most frequently recovered members of the family Enterobacteriaceae in biliary tract infections and maintained these levels for over 20 h after dosing. Accordingly, this cephalosporin deserves further clinical trials to assess its usefulness in both prophylaxis and treatment of biliary tract infections.

A 1 year study of Escherichia coli O157 in cattle and sheep at slaughter, on beef and lamb carcasses and in raw beef and lamb products from retail butchers' shops was performed in the Sheffield area. Each month, samples of rectal faeces were collected immediately after slaughter from 400 cattle and 600 sheep, and 400-430 samples of raw meat products were purchased from butchers' shops. Meat samples were also obtained from 1500 beef and 1500 lamb carcasses. All samples were examined for E. coli O157 by enrichment culture, immunomagnetic separation and culture of magnetic particles onto cefixime tellurite sorbitol MacConkey agar. Raw meat products were also examined for numbers of generic E. coli by a standard membrane culture method. E. coli O157 was isolated from 620 (12.9%) of 4800 cattle, 100 (7.4%) of 7200 sheep, 21 (1.4%) of 1500 beef carcasses, 10 (0.7%) of 1500 lamb carcasses and from 22 (0.44%) of 4983 raw meat products. E. coli O157 was isolated more frequently from lamb products (0.8%) than from beef products (0.4%). Numbers of generic E. coli in meat products reached seasonal peaks in July and August with counts of > 10(4)/g occurring more frequently in lamb products (50.8 and 42.4%, respectively) than in beef products (19.3 and 23.8%, respectively). The majority of E. coli O157 strains, from animals, carcasses and meat samples, were isolated during the summer. Most were verocytotoxigenic as determined by Vero cell assay and DNA hybridisation, eaeA gene positive and contained a 92 kb plasmid. The isolates were compared with 66 isolates from human cases over the same period. A combination of phage type, toxin genotype and plasmid analysis allowed subdivision of all the E. coli O157 isolates into 96 subtypes. Of these subtypes, 53 (55%) were isolated only from bovine faecal samples. However, 61 (92%) of the 66 isolates from humans belonged to 13 subtypes which were also found in the animal population.

The study highlights that there is a continuous increase in resistance to previously recommended antibiotics despite their disuse for treatment. The increase in number of strains with decreased susceptibility to extended-spectrum cephalosporins and azithromycin resistance, currently recommended for management of gonorrhea, is of serious concern. These trends should be monitored continuously to change antibiotic policy.

Acute urinary tract infection (UTI) is common in children. By the age of seven 8.4% of girls and 1.7% of boys will have suffered at least one episode. Symptoms include fever, lethargy, anorexia Cefdinir Drug Category , and vomiting. UTI is caused by Escherichia coli in over 80% of cases and treatment consists of a course of antibiotics. Due to acute illness caused by UTI and the risk of pyelonephritis-induced permanent kidney damage, many children are given long-term antibiotics aimed at preventing recurrence.

Most isolates carried PBP2 mutation Enhancin 125 Mg pattern IX (D345a, F504L, A510V, A516G and P551L; 50/146, 34.2%), a G45D substitution in MtrR (37.7%) and a wild-type (WT) sequence for PorB (43.2%). Group 2 gonococcal isolates were significantly associated with: penA pattern IX; dual mutations in the promoter (A-) and DNA dimerization domain (H105Y) of MtrR; and G120K;A121D substitutions in PorB. There were 50 combined penA/mtrR/porB mutation patterns, with corresponding patterns I/WT/WT and IX/G45D/G120K;A121D predominating. Gonococci susceptible to ceftriaxone and cefixime were significantly associated with NG-MAST ST 25 (33/36; 92%) and the combined penA/mtrR/porB mutation pattern I/WT/WT. No combined mutation pattern or specific ST was associated with elevated ceftriaxone MICs. NG-MAST ST 3654 was significantly associated with the pattern IX/G45D/G120K;A121D and cefixime group 2 isolates.

The antibacterial activities of cefetamet, cefixime and cefuroxime were investigated in Escherichia coli with regard to their penetration rates through the outer membrane and their affinities for PBPs in Escherichia coli. The permeability coefficient of cefetamet was measured in E. coli C600 carrying a pUC18 plasmid derivative, in which the gene of a transferable cephamycinase (CMY-2) was cloned, whereas diffusion of cefixime and cefuroxime was measured in E. coli C600 harbouring the OXA-1 beta-lactamase gene. It was found that cefetamet penetrated 5 and 9 times faster than cefixime and cefuroxime, respectively. The correlation Macrozit Suspension between antibacterial activities and PBP affinities was studied in E. coli C600 not producing beta-lactamases. In this strain, cefetamet and cefixime shared the same inhibitory activity (MIC = 1 microgram/ml for both antibiotics) and the same affinity for PBP 3 (ID50 = 0.25 micrograms/ml). Cefuroxime had a lower inhibitory activity (MIC = 4 micrograms/ml) and a lower affinity for PBP 3 (ID50 = 0.5 microgram/ml). Cefixime and cefuroxime had 20 and 10 times higher affinity, respectively, than cefetamet for PBP 1s. It was concluded that the superior PBP affinity of cefixime can counterbalance the better penetration of cefetamet through the outer membrane, whilst differences in either permeability or PBP affinity seem sufficient to explain the lower antibacterial activity of cefuroxime compared to cefixime, which might well be related to the poor stability of the cefuroxime molecule.

Clinical Bactoclav Syrup Dosage urethritis should motivate urine analyses including tests for leukocytes and PCR for C. trachomatis and N. gononhocae. The culture of an urethral swab for gonococci is sensitive as well. It allows susceptibility tests. Other infectious agents have been associated with urethritis (e.g., M. genitalium, T. vaginalis, H. simplex). They should be searched in case of negative first results or non-response to an empiric treatment. Given the emergence of resistances to quinolones, single doses of azithromycin 1 g plus cefixime 400 mg constitute a good choice which permits to ensure adherence. Contact tracing, screening for other sexually transmitted infections, and the evaluation of the sexual behaviour should always be done in order to prevent any further transmission.

We studied whether the Etest can be used as an alternative to agar dilution to determine antimicrobial susceptibilities of ceftriaxone, cefixime, and cefpodoxime in Neisseria gonorrhoeae surveillance. One hundred fifteen clinical and laboratory isolates of N. gonorrhoeae were tested following the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)-approved CLSI standard agar dilution method and, separately, by the Etest according to the manufacturer's recommendations. The MICs were determined and compared. Ten laboratory-generated mutants were used to simulate substantially nonsusceptible specimens. The Etest and agar dilution methods were well correlated. Statistical tests produced regression R2 values of 88%, 82%, and 85% and Pearson correlation coefficients of 92%, 91%, and 92% for ceftriaxone, cefixime, and cefpodoxime, respectively. When paired comparisons were made, the two tests were 88.7%, 80%, and 87% within 1 log2 dilution from each other for Septibiotic 750 Mg Levofloxacina ceftriaxone, cefixime, and cefpodoxime, respectively. The within-2-log2 agreements were 99.1%, 98.3%, and 94.8% for ceftriaxone, cefixime, and cefpodoxime, respectively. Notwithstanding the good correlations and the within-2-log2 general agreement, the Etest results produced slightly lower MICs than the agar dilution results. In conclusion, we found that the Etest can be effectively used as an alternative to agar dilution testing to determine the susceptibility of N. gonorrhoeae to ceftriaxone, cefixime, and cefpodoxime, although we recommend further research into extremely resistant isolates. For isolates within the typical range of clinical MICs, reexamination of the Etest interpretation of susceptible and nonsusceptible categories would likely allow for successful transition from agar dilution to the Etest.

We characterized the carbohydrate-fermenting ability of 31 strains of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O26 isolated from diarrhea patients in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, in order to establish selective isolation media for these strains. None of the 31 STEC O26 strains (24 O26:H11, 7 O26:H-) fermented rhamnose, whereas all of the other 108 STEC strains (100 O157, 8 O111) and all of the non-STEC strains except one (i.e., 58 of 59) Unixime 200 Mg fermented rhamnose. The great majority of the STEC O26 strains (96.8% [30 of 31]) showed very high resistance to potassium tellurite (MIC > or = 50 microg/ml), whereas the majority of the non-STEC strains (72.9% [43 of 59]) showed very high sensitivity (MIC < or = 1.56 microg/ml) to this compound. Accordingly, we developed a rhamnose-MacConkey (RMAC) medium in which the lactose in MacConkey medium was replaced by rhamnose, and cefixime-tellurite-RMAC (CT-RMAC) medium in which potassium tellurite (2.5 mg/liter) and cefixime (0.05 mg/liter) were added to RMAC. All of the STEC O26 strains generated colorless (rhamnose-nonfermented) colonies on both media; the vast majority of selected E. coli strains (95.7% [89 of 93; including 26 STEC O157, 8 STEC O111]), other than STEC O26, generated red colonies on RMAC, and most of the non-STEC strains (84.7% [50 of 59]) did not grow on CT-RMAC. We demonstrate that both the RMAC and the CT-RMAC media can be used for the isolation of STEC O26 and that CT-RMAC has better specificity for the routine isolation for STEC O26 in a laboratory.

FK 027 was more active than cefaclor, cephalexin, and amoxicillin against stock strains of a wide variety of gram-negative bacteria, including such Dosage Of Loxof opportunistic pathogens as Citrobacter and Enterobacter species and Serratia marcescens. FK 027 was significantly more active than the three reference drugs against clinical isolates of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, indole-positive and -negative Proteus species, Providencia species, Haemophilus influenzae, and Neisseria gonorrhoeae. It was less active than cefaclor, cephalexin, and amoxicillin against staphylococci, but it was similar to cefaclor in its activity against streptococci. With few exceptions, FK 027 was active against strains of E. coli, K. pneumoniae, and Proteus mirabilis that were resistant to the reference agents. The bactericidal activity of FK 027 against various gram-negative bacteria, including Proteus species, Citrobacter freundii, Enterobacter aerogenes, and S. marcescens, was greater than that of cefaclor, cephalexin, and amoxicillin. The therapeutic activities of FK 027 in mice infected with gram-negative bacilli were far superior to the activities of cefaclor, cephalexin, and amoxicillin, but they were inferior to the activities of these reference drugs against infection with Staphylococcus aureus.
