Description

Generic Omnicef is a semi-synthetic (partially man-made) oral antibiotic in the cephalosporin family of antibiotics. Like other cephalosporins cefdinir stops bacteria from multiplying by preventing bacteria from forming walls that surround them. The walls are necessary to protect bacteria from their environment and to keep the contents of the bacterial cell together. Bacteria cannot survive without a cell wall. Generic Omnicef is active against a very wide spectrum of bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus; Streptococcus pneumoniae; Streptococcus pyogenes (the cause of strep throat); Hemophilus influenzae; Moraxella catarrhalis; E. coli ; Klebsiella; and Proteus mirabilis. It is not active against Pseudomonas. Therapeutic uses of cefdinir include otitis media (infections of the middle ear), infections of soft tissues, and respiratory tract infections.

Generic name of Generic Omnicef is Cefdinir.

Omnicef is also known as Cefdinir, Sefdin, Adcef.

Brand name of Generic Omnicef is Omnicef.

Dosage

Generic Omnicef is taken once or twice daily, depending on the nature and severity of the infection.

The capsules or suspension can be taken with or without food.

Patients with advanced renal disease may need to take lower doses to prevent accumulation of cefdinir since it is eliminated from the body by the kidneys.

For adult infections the usual dose is 300 mg every 12 hours or 600 mg per day for 5-10 days depending on the nature and severity of the infection.

The recommended dose for children 6 months to 12 years of age is 7 mg/kg every 12 hours or 14 mg/kg per day for 5-10 days depending on the infection.

For most infections once daily dosing is as effective as twice daily dosing, though once daily dosing has not been evaluated for the treatment of skin infections or pneumonia.

Do not stop taking Generic Omnicef suddenly.

Overdose

If you overdose Generic Omnicef and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care provider immediately.

Storage

Store at room temperature between 20 and 25 degrees C (68 and 77 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

Of the 175 enrolled patients, urine was obtained by clean catch in 138 (79%), catheterization in 35 (20%), first-pass void in 1 (0.6%), and undocumented method in 1 (0.6%). Pyuria was demonstrated in 164 patients (94%), but only 97 (55%) had a positive urine culture. The combination of pyuria and a positive urine culture confirmed UTI in 90 patients (51%). The most commonly prescribed antibiotics were cefdinir in 103 patients (59%), trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole in 40 (23%), and ciprofloxacin in 23 (13%). The median duration of prescribed therapy was 10 days (interquartile range, 7-10 days). Treatment duration was correlated negatively with age (r = -0.53, P < 0.01).

The clinical efficacy of cefditoren pivoxil (CDTR-PI) was evaluated for 43 pediatric patients with acute otitis media or acute sinusitis. The causative organisms were identified and their susceptibilities to 6 oral beta-lactam antibiotics were measured; ampicillin (ABPC), cefaclor (CCL), cefdinir (CFDN), cefditoren pivoxil (CDTR-PI), cefteram pivoxil (CFTM-PI) and cefpodoxime proxetil (CPDX-PR). The ages of 43 patients were distributed from 4 months to 10 years and 7 months, and especially children under 4 years accounted for 72% (31 cases). In 22 cases (51%), Haemophilus influenzae or Streptococcus pneumoniae were identified as the pathogens, but in 18 cases, no causative organisms were defined. Treatment by CDTR-PI was successful in 12 cases out of 15 evaluable cases in which H. influenzae or S. pneumoniae were identified as the main causative organisms. From the susceptibility testing of them, some strains of H. influenzae were found to be ABPC-resistant and some strains of S. pneumoniae were benzylpenicillin (PCG)-resistant. To support above clinical evaluation of CDTR-PI, susceptibility testings on clinically isolated H. influenzae (81 strains) and S. pneumoniae (79 strains) were performed using above mentioned 6 oral beta-lactam antibiotics. The MIC80s against H. influenzae were; CDTR-PI 0.06 microgram/ml, CCL 2 micrograms/ml, CPDX-PR 0.125 microgram/ml, CFTM-PI 0.03 microgram/ml, CFDN 1 microgram/ml and ABPC 1 microgram/ml. Those against S. pneumoniae were; CDTR-PI 0.5 microgram/ml, CCL > 4 micrograms/ml, CPDX-PR 2 micrograms/ml, CFTM-PI 1 microgram/ml, CFDN 2 micrograms/ml and ABPC 1 microgram/ml. From those results, it was concluded that CDTR-PI or CFTM-PI may be preferable for the treatment of acute otitis media and acute sinusitis in children.

233 H. influenzae isolates obtained from pediatric outpatients with acute otitis media (n = 55), sinusitis (n = 58), or lower respiratory tract infections ( n = 120) from 1 November 2004 to 30 April 2005 were characterized for beta-lactamase production and susceptibility to a panel of 10 beta-lactam antimicrobials. 5000 concentration-time profiles were simulated for US FDA-approved doses of oral amoxicillin, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, cefpodoxime, cefprozil, ceftibuten, and cefuroxime using pharmacokinetics and weights of 5-year old male children. The probability of attaining free drug concentrations above the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) for 50% of the dosing interval (50% fT > MIC) was assessed for each regimen against this population of H. influenzae.

The in vitro activity of cefdinir, an oral aminothiazolyl hydroxyimino cephalosporin was compared with that of cefixime, cefpodoxime, cefaclor, cephalexin, ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, oxacillin, ampicillin, vancomycin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole against 279 gram-positive and gram-negative recent clinical isolates from adult and pediatric patients. Cefdinir was the most active drug among the cephalosporins against oxacillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus and coagulase-negative staphylococci, Streptococcus pneumoniae, S. pyogenes, Escherichia coli and Moraxella catarrhalis (MIC90 0.015-2 mg/l). Cefixime was the most active agent against Hemophilus influenzae, Klebsiella pneumoniae, K. oxytoca, Proteus mirabilis and P. vulgaris (MIC90 < 0.015-0.125 mg/l). The activity of cefpodoxime was better than that of cefixime against S. pneumoniae and oxacillin-sensitive staphylococci (MIC90 0.25-8 vs. 0.5-32 mg/l), similar to cefixime against S. pyogenes (MIC90 0.06 mg/l) and not as good as cefixime against H. influenzae, M. catarrhalis, Klebsiella spp. and Proteus spp. (MIC90 < 0.015-0.25 vs. 0.125-0.5 mg/l). The activity of cefdinir was greater than that of the other cephalosporins against Enterococcus faecalis (MIC90 16-32 vs. > 64 mg/l). None of the cephalosporins were active against methicillin-resistant, coagulase-positive or -negative staphylococci or Pseudomonas aeruginosa (MIC90 > 64 mg/l). Overall, the susceptibilities of adult and pediatric isolates were similar. Kinetic kill curves demonstrated rapid and similar killing at 6 h by cefdinir, cefixime, cefpodoxime and ofloxacin. At 24 h at 1 x MIC, the least regrowth was observed with cefdinir and cefpodoxime; at 2 x MIC, suppression of growth was similar with all four drugs.

A first step in management decisions regarding otitis media must focus on accurate diagnosis to distinguish normal from acute otitis media (AOM) from otitis media with effusion (OME) or a retracted tympanic membrane without middle ear effusion. There are several classification schemes for AOM that may impact management decisions: patients with acute, persistent, recurrent, or chronic AOM may have a different distribution of bacterial pathogens and a different likelihood of success from antimicrobial therapy. Patient age, prior treatment history and daycare attendance are other important variables. The natural history of AOM without antibiotic treatment is generally favorable; however, from the few studies available, this is difficult to quantitate because the diagnosis was infrequently confirmed by tympanocentesis leaving the possibility that many patients entered into these trials may not have had bacterial AOM. Antibiotic choices should reflect pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic data and clinical trial results demonstrating effectiveness in eradication of the most likely pathogens based on tympanocentesis sampling and antibiotic sensitivity testing. Thereafter, compliance factors such as formulation, dosing schedule and duration of treatment and accessibility factors such as availability and cost should be taken into account. The increasing prevalence of antibiotic resistance among AOM pathogens and the changing susceptibility profiles of these bacteria should be considered in antibiotic selection. Current best practice recommends amoxicillin for uncomplicated AOM; continuing or switching to an alternative antibiotic based on clinical response after 48 hours of therapy; and selection of second line antibiotics as first line choices when the patient has already been on an antibiotic within the previous month or is otitis prone. Preferred second-line agents frequently noted in various guidelines include amoxicillin/clavulanate, cefdinir, cefpodoxime, cefprozil, and cefuroxime. Three injections of ceftriaxone or gatifloxacin (when approved) or diagnostic/therapeutic tympanocentisis (when approved) become a third-line treatment option. No single antibiotic or management strategy is ideal for all patients.

This article reviews the structure-activity relationships, biological properties and synthesis of two new oral cephalosporin antibiotics, cefixime (CFIX) and cefdinir (CFDN). Our research into new oral cephalosporin antibiotics began in the late 1970's. The first goal of our research was to discover a new oral cephem possessing similar antibacterial activity and resistance to beta-lactamase as the 3rd generation injectable cephalosporins. We focused our attention on searching for a non-prodrug type cephem, that is, a new parent structure with high intrinsic absorption. We selected ceftizoxime (CZX) as a seed compound due to its relatively high excretion rate (8.5%) in the urine after oral administration to rats. We concentrated our research on the chemical modification of the oxime moiety in CZX based on our hypothesis for oral absorption, and discovered a lead compound with a carboxymethoxyimino group which displayed better urinary excretion (41.0%). Optimization studies led to a new oral cephem, CFIX. However, CFIX shows only low to moderate antibacterial activity against gram-positive bacteria such as S. aureus. Hence, the second goal of our research was to discover a new oral cephem with enhanced activity against gram-positive bacteria. From a consideration of structure-absorption relationships, we studied the activity and absorbability of cephems bearing other acidic functional groups at the oxime moiety of CFIX. As a result, we found a new oral cephem, CFDN with a hydroxyimino group at the 7-position. CFIX has excellent biological properties, displaying potent antibacterial activity against a wide range of gram-positive bacteria except S. aureus and gram-negative bacteria including opportunistic pathogens, high stability towards beta-lactamases and long acting efficacy. CFDN exhibits excellent and well balanced antibacterial activities against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. The pharmacokinetic of CFDN in healthy volunteers showed that serum levels were high enough to make CFDN as an effective antibacterial agent. The proposed mechanisms of intestinal absorption of CFIX and CFDN are briefly described. The efficient synthetic methods to CFIX and CFDN were achieved via a common intermediate, 7-amino-3-vinylcephalosporanic acid diphenylmethyl ester from 7-ACA.

We studied pharmacokinetics and clinical effects of cefdinir (CFDN), a newly developed oral cephalosporin, and the following results were obtained. 1. Pharmacokinetics of CFDN in 2 patients were investigated. The 2 patients with ages of 8 years (36.5 kg, body weight) and 6 years (26.5 kg, body weight) were administered with 3 mg/kg of fine granules of CFDN on empty stomachs. Peak plasma levels of CFDN were 0.85 microgram/ml in one patient and 0.56 microgram/ml in the other. The 8-hour urinary recovery rate was 21.6% of the administered dose in one and was not calculable in the other. 2. Clinical effects of CFDN were studied in 25 children with various infectious diseases: 11 with acute pharyngitis, 1 with acute tonsillitis, 2 with acute laryngitis, 3 with acute bronchitis, 2 with acute bronchopneumonia, 4 with scarlet fever, 1 with acute otitis media, 1 with acute lymphadenitis. The efficacy rate was 96% (24/25), and the bacteriological eradication rate was 83.3% (10/12). 3. No side effects were noted. Clinical laboratory test values were investigated in 14 patients. There were no seriously abnormal laboratory test findings except a slight elevation of eosinophile and GPT.

One hundred and thirteen strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae (S. pneumoniae) were isolated from the clinical specimens of patients with respiratory tract infections between January and December 1998 in three hospitals in Hokusetsu area of Osaka. We investigated susceptibility of 113 strains of S. pneumoniae to benzylpenicillin (PCG) and other antimicrobial agents and their serotypes. 1) Of the 113 strains of S. pneumoniae isolated, 25.7% were susceptible (PSSP), 51.3% were intermediate (PISP) and 23% were resistant to benzylpenicillin (PRSP). 2) The MICs of cefaclor, cefditoren, cefpodoxime, cefdinir, erythromycin, clindamycin and minocycline were elevated, but the MIC values of cefditoren ranged from < or = 0.03 to 1.0 microgram/ml. The susceptibility of 113 strains to cefditoren was comparatively high. 3) The MIC values of imipenem, meropenem and vancomycin for 81 strains of PISP and PRSP ranged from < or = 0.015 to 1.0 microgram/ml, from < or = 0.015 to 2.0 micrograms/ml and from 0.13 to 0.5 microgram/ml, respectively. The susceptibility of these strains to three antimicrobial agents was superior to that to the other antimicrobial agents examined. 4) Of the 60 strains examined, 19, 6, and 23 serotypes were 30, 25 and 18.3%, respectively. The three serotypes were observed in PISP and PRSP with a high frequency. 5) Isolates of S. pneumoniae were 37.2% for children under 2 years of age and 30.9% for children from 2 to 6 years of age. Most of the strains isolated from these children were resistant.

Congenital deformities of the labyrinth of the inner ear can be associated with meningitis and varying degrees of hearing loss or deafness. A recurrence of meningitis is due to the development of a fistulous communication between the subarachnoid space and the middle ear cavity, and can prove lethal. An illustrative case of a 4-year-old Japanese girl with bilateral severe hearing loss, recurrent meningitis and malformations of the inner ear and stapes footplate is presented. Removal of the stapes during tympanotomy provoked a gush of cerebrospinal fluid. The defect was repaired successfully, and there has been no further episodes of meningitis to date.

Dermatologists treat a variety of uncomplicated skin and skin structure infections (uSSSIs) such as folliculitis, impetigo, erysipelas, cellulitis, furuncles, carbuncles, and non-perirectal abscesses. Most uSSSIs are caused by Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes. The new extended-spectrum cephalosporins (cefdinir, cefpodoxime) offer efficacy against most Gram-positive and Gram-negative pathogens. Despite recently published guidelines, many physicians do not prescribe cephalosporins for uSSSIs out of concern that these agents will produce a hypersensitivity reaction in patients allergic to penicillin. Although the rate of cephalosporin reaction in penicillin-allergic patients is often quoted as up to 10%, this rate does not take into account the 1% to 3% risk for allergy to cephalosporin alone and the nonspecific increased risk of penicillin-allergic patients to develop hypersensitivity to other drugs. When these additional risks are considered, the likelihood of a reaction in known penicillin-allergic patients, especially to most third-generation and extended spectrum cephalosporins, becomes less than 1%. Cephalosporins with side chains unlike those of penicillin or ampicillin side chains are less likely to result in an allergic reaction in penicillin or ampicillin-allergic patients than cephalosporins with similar side chains. Although both cefdinir and cefpodoxime are considered to carry a very low risk of cross reactivity with penicillin or ampicillin, the former demonstrates better activity against S. aureus. Among the late-generation cephalosporins, cefdinir is the most potent oral agent when tested against oxacillin-susceptible staphylococci, 4- to 16-fold more active than cefprozil and cephalexin, respectively.

The therapeutic activities of orally administered FK041 were evaluated in mouse models of systemic and local infections with a variety of bacteria and were compared with those of cefdinir (CFDN) and cefditoren pivoxil (CDTR-PI). FK041 exhibited potent therapeutic activity against lethal systemic infections induced by intraperitoneally inoculated Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, and Klebsiella pneumoniae with 50% effective doses (ED50) in the range of 0.20 to 0.36 mg/kg and was more active than CFDN and CDTR-PI. This result correlated well with its in vitro activity. The therapeutic effects of FK041 and reference drugs on murine local infections were evaluated in an in vivo pharmacokinetic model simulating human plasma concentrations for oral administration of 50 mg, 100 mg, and 200 mg. Against murine subcutaneous abscess induced by S. aureus, FK041 was as effective as CFDN and significantly more effective than CDTR-PI in reducing the number of recoverable viable bacteria in the skin at the infection sites. The efficacy of FK041 against murine pneumonia with H. influenzae was comparable to that of CDTR-PI and was superior to that of CFDN in reducing viable bacteria activity in the lungs. These results strongly suggest that FK041 has potential for clinical use against various bacterial infections.

We compared the antimicrobial activity of commercially available oral cephem agents, cefaclor (CCL), cefroxadine (CXD), cefdinir (CFDN), cefixime (CFIX), cefpodoxime (CPDX), cefteram (CFTM), cefcapene (CFPN), and cefditoren (CDTR), against Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and ESBL-producing bacteria isolated from clinical materials in Kansai Medical University Hospital between 2002 and 2003. Based on the Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) theory, we determined the concentration of each agent at which the time above MIC (TAM) value was 40% or more, and calculated the rate of efficacy against each type of bacteria. In S. pneumoniae strains, the MIC(50,80,90) values of CDTR were 0.25, 0.5, and 0.5 microg/ml, respectively, lower than those of the other agents, demonstrating the most potent antimicrobial activity. However, the efficacy rate for CDTR calculated based on the PK/PD theory was 58.5%. CFTM showed the highest efficacy rate (66.1%). In H. influenzae strains, the antimicrobial activity of CDTR was most potent, followed by that of CFTM and that of CFPN/CFIX. The MIC90 value of CDTR was lowest (0.25 microg/ml), followed by that of CFTM (0.5 microg/ml). The efficacy rate for CDTR was 100%. This result supports that CDTR frequently eradicates H. influenzae. In E. coli strains, the MIC90 values of the above agents, excluding CCL and CXD, ranged from 0.5 to 1 microg/ml. The antimicrobial activity of CFIX against K. pneumoniae was most potent, followed by that of CFDN/CPDX and that of CFTM. In ESBL-producing bacteria, most agents showed an MIC90 value of more than 4 microg/ml. In S. agalactiae and S. pyogenes strains, all of the agents showed satisfactory MIC values. In methi- cillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) strains, CFDN and CXD showed a high efficacy rate, whereas the efficacy rates for the other agents were low. The frequent use of oral agents has increased the number of cephem-resistant bacteria. ESBL-producing bacteria become highly resistant, and the presence or absence of response can be readily evaluated. However, when a mutation of penicillin-binding protein (PBP) occurs, drug resistance is less marked. Therefore, it is difficult to evaluate the treatment response in many cases. In S. pneumoniae strains, the efficacy rates for all of the agents were low in the evaluation using the PK/PD theory, suggesting that a dose higher than the standard dose should be established. Thus, in the future, the efficacy should be evaluated based on the PK/PD theory, appropriate antimicrobial treatment should be administered, and the administration method that does not increase the number of resistant bacteria must be established.

The synthesis and biological properties of 1beta-methylcarbapenems with 1-methyl-5-oxopyrrolidin-3-ylthio group at the C-2 position were studied. The sodium (1R,5S,6S)-6-[(R)-1-hydroxyethyl]-1-methyl-2-[(R)-1-methyl-5-oxopyrro lidin-3-ylthio]-1-carbapen-2-em-3-carboxylate and its (S)-isomer at the 2-position show potent and well-balanced antibacterial activity. The pharmacokinetic parameters of the pivaloyloxymethyl esters of these two carbapenems were compared in mice. The in vivo potency of these carbapenems was compared with that of cefdinir. Good in vivo efficacy of these ester prodrugs reflected the high and prolonged blood levels in parent drugs achieved after oral administration to mice.

The final analysis included 1033 patients: 530 (51%) before the CPG (pre-CPG) and 503 (49%) after the CPG (post-CPG). Pre-CPG, ceftriaxone (72%) was the most commonly prescribed antibiotic, followed by ampicillin (13%). Post-CPG, the most common antibiotic was ampicillin (63%). The effect of the CPG was associated with a 34% increase in ampicillin use (P < .001). Discharge antibiotics also changed post-CPG, showing a significant increase in amoxicillin use (P < .001) and a significant decrease in cefdinir and amoxicillin/clavulanate (P < .001), with the combined effect of the CPG and ASP leading to 12% (P < 0.001) and 16% (P < .001) reduction, respectively. Overall, treatment failure was infrequent (1.5% vs 1%).

N. gonorrhoeae isolates from these two patients showed high-level MICs to these agents. The MIC of cefdinir was 1 microg/ml for both strains and that of aztreonam was 8 microg/ml for both strains, while the MICs of other beta-lactams were also higher than the NCCLS value, except for ceftriaxone, for which the MIC was 0.125 microg/ml for both strains. Moreover, the MICs of fluoroquinolones, tetracyclines, and erythromycin against these two isolates were higher than the NCCLS susceptibility value. These isolates were susceptible to spectinomycin. In N. gonorrhoeae, the emergence of these beta-lactam-resistant isolates is of serious concern. However, a more serious problem is that these isolates were already resistant to non-beta-lactam antimicrobials. In Japan, ceftriaxone has not been permitted for clinical use against gonococcal infections. Therefore, in Japan, patients with gonococcal urethritis caused by these resistant N. gonorrhoeae strains should be treated with cefodizime or spectinomycin.

The aim of this study was to compare the bioavailability, after oral administration, of the generic "Adcef Suspension" (test) (125 mg/5 ml cefdinir; CAS 91832-40-5), with that of a commercially available original preparation (reference) (125 mg/ 5 ml cefdinir). For this purpose a randomized, two-way, crossover, bioequivalence study was performed in 24 healthy, male volunteers. The Middle Eastern selected volunteers were divided into two groups of 12 subjects. One group was treated with the reference standard and the other one with the test, with a crossover after the drug washout period of 7 days. Blood samples were collected at fixed time intervals and cefdinir concentrations were determined by a validated HPLC assay method. The pharmacokinetic parameters AUC(0-24), AUC(0-infinity), C(max), T(max), K(e) and T1/2 were determined for both formulations and were compared statistically to evaluate the bioequivalence betwee the two brands of cefdinir, using the statistical model recommended by the FDA. The analysis of variance (ANOVA) did not show any significant difference between the two formulations and 90% confidence intervals (CI) fell within the acceptable range for bioequivalence. Based on the statistical evaluation it was concluded that buy omnicef the two formulations exhibit.

A multicenter, randomized, controlled, investigator-blind study was performed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of oral cefdinir versus oral penicillin V for the treatment of pharyngitis due to group A beta-hemolytic streptococci (GABHS). Patients 13 years of age and older were randomized to receive either oral cefdinir (300 mg twice a day) for 5 days followed by placebo for 5 days or oral penicillin V (250 mg four times a day) for 10 days. Throat cultures were obtained, and signs and symptoms of pharyngitis were recorded at study admission and follow-up visits on study days 11 to 15, 16 to 20, and 25 to 31. Patients kept a diary to record medication intake and their assessment of throat pain at admission and at each day of study treatment. Five hundred fifty-eight patients were enrolled, of whom 432 (77.4%) were clinically and microbiologically evaluable. The GABHS eradication rates 5 to 10 days after completion of therapy were 193 of 218 (88.5%) in the cefdinir group and 176 of 214 (82.2%) in the penicillin group (P = 0.053). Clinical cure rates were 89.0 and 84.6%, respectively (P = 0.80). By the time of the long-term follow-up visit, 2 to 3 weeks after completion of treatment, 156 of 191 (81.7%) of the assessable cefdinir patients and 152 of 195 (77.9%) of the penicillin patients remained free of GABHS. Both treatments were well tolerated, with adverse reaction rates of 18.3% in the cefdinir study arm and 15.0% in the penicillin study arm (P = 0.278). Five-day treatment with cefdinir is safe and effective therapy for GABHS pharyngitis. Based on its twice-a-day dosage and buy omnicef shorter course of therapy, leading to potentially greater patient compliance, cefdinir may be considered for use in the treatment of pharyngitis caused by GABHS.

A total of 2865 strains of the causative organisms isolated from the patients with acute pharyngitis and tonsillitis at the primary medical institutions were used in this study. The MICs of levofloxacin (LVFX) and other oral antimicrobial drugs were determined and evaluated by the NCCLS guideline. LVFX, cefditoren (CDTR) and cefcapene (CFPN) were potently active against 773 isolates of Hemophilus influenzae, the MIC50S of LVFX being < or = 0.06 microgram/mL and also the same as the buy omnicef MIC90S of LVFX. LVFX was the most active against 496 isolates of Enterobacteriaceae. The MIC50S of LVFX were < or = 0.06 microgram/mL and were lower than those of CDTR, cefdinir (CFDN) and cefpodoxime (CPDX) (MIC50S: 0.5 microgram/mL). The MIC90S of these cephems were markedly higher than the respective MIC50S, whereas MIC50 of LVFX was 0.12 microgram/mL, only twice the MIC50. Against the majority of Streptococcus pyogenes (555 isolates) and Streptococcus spp. (495 isolates), CDTR, CFDN, CPDX and CFPN were highly active (MICs: < or = 0.06 microgram/mL), and clarithromycin (CAM) and azithromycin (AZM) were also active against these organisms (MICs: 0.12 to 0.25 microgram/mL). Against S. pneumoniae (92 isolates), CDTR and CFDN were active (MIC50S: 0.12 and 0.25 microgram/mL, respectively). However, the MIC90S of these drugs were 4-8 times the MIC50S. Against Moraxella (Branhamella) catarrhalis (454 isolates), LVFX was potently active, the MIC90 of LVFX being < or = 0.06 microgram/mL and MIC90S of the other cephems being 0.5 microgram/mL or more. When the susceptibility of these strains to LVFX was evaluated by the NCCLS guideline, about 3% of other Streptococcus spp. were resistant to the drug but no test strains resistant to LVFX were detected in H. influenzae, S. pyogenes or Enterobacteriaceae. On the other hand, the percentages of strains susceptible to the cephems tested were 60-90%, which were quite different according to kinds of drugs and species used. Furthermore, the strains of S. pneumoniae resistant to CFDN and CPDX, and those to CAM and AZM were 21-25% and 50% or more, respectively, whereas no LVFX-resistant strains were detected. The major pathogens isolated from patients with pharyngitis and tonsillitis in the primary institutions were highly susceptible to LVFX. These results suggest that LVFX is a useful drug which is potently active against the strains resistant to oral cephem and macrolide antibiotics.

A short history of the pharmaceutical science and technology, postwar 50 years is divided into nine sections for the purpose of discussion. 1. Japan's postwar rehabilitation, Japanese pharmaceutical industries and newly developed pharmaceutical sciences and technologies. In 1945, the Japanese pharmaceutical industry was reconstructed. Production of penicillin was carried out with the strong support of the U.S. Occupation Forces. New sciences in pharmacy (biochemistry, biopharmacy, pharmacology, microbiology, physical chemistry, etc.) were introduced in this period. 2. Introduction age of foreign new drugs and technology (1951 to 1960s). Japan gained independence in 1951. Japanese pharmaceutical companies imported many new drugs and new pharmaceutical technologies from the U.S.A. and European countries in this period. Then, these companies were reconstruction rapidly. However, consequently Japanese pharmaceutical companies were formed as an imitation industry. 3. Rapid economic growth period for pharmaceutical companies (1956 to 1970s). In this period, many Japanese pharmaceutical companies grew rapidly at an annual rate of 15-20% over a period of 15 years, especially with regard to the production of active vitamin B1 analog drugs and some OTC (public health drugs). Some major companies made large profits, which were used to construct research facilities. 4. Problems for the harmful effects of medicines and its ethical responsibility. In the 1970s, many public toxic and harmful effects of medicines were caused, especially SMON's disease. In this time, many pharmaceutical companies changed to its security got development of ethical drugs. 5. Self development of new drugs and administration of pharmaceutical rules (1970s). During the 1970s, many pharmaceutical laws (GLP, GCP, GMP, GPMSP etc.) were enacted by the Ministry of Health and Welfare. In 1976, the Japanese Pharmaceutical Affairs Law was revised, which set forth standards regarding the efficacy and safety of ethical drugs and re-evaluation of drugs. Many facilities were built for the purpose of ensuring efficacy and safety, as shwon in Table 1. 6. Problems of Intellectual Property and followed the revisionist line of research and development for new ethical drugs. In 1976, Japanese pharmaceutical companies ceased to be an imitation industry, and increased research for the development of new drugs. 7. Pharmaceutical science and technology innovation (After 1985). Many of the pharmaceutical innovations during this period were as follows: 7.1) Technology innovation for evaluation of drug efficacy; 7.2) 1st to 3rd medical diagnostic technology innovations; 7.3) medical analytical methods and spectrometry technologies; 7.4) Computer-aided drug-design technology and drug information technology innovation; and 7.5) Drug delivery system and treatment drugs. 8. Recent research and development of new ethical drugs in Japan (1970 to 1995). Cephalosporine type beta-lactams (cefazolin, cefametazole, furomoxef, cefdinir), new quinolones (norfloxcin, ofloxacin, tosfloxcin), H1-Blockers (famotidine), Ca-antagonists (diltiazem, nicardipine), and other new drugs (pravastatine, taclolimus, leuprine) etc. came onto the market. 9. International Harmonization Age and Buspar Drug Classification Review toward 21 century. The rapid development and globalization of the pharmaceutical market has promoted international harmonization and rationalization of pharmaceutical regulatory affairs. In 1990, the Japan Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association published a report toward 21 century, which described practical plans.

The bactericidal activity and the postantibiotic effect (PAE) of cefdinir (Cl 983, FK 482) (CDR), were determined against Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Branhamella catarrhalis and Escherichia coli (5 strains each) in comparison to erythromycin (E), cotrimoxazole (SXT) and amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (AMC). Kinetic studies of kill showed that CDR was rapidly bactericidal at concentrations 2 and 4 times the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC): a reduction of 99.9% in CFU values was observed after 6-8 h for many of the isolates tested. As expected, a PAE was observed when S. aureus was treated with CDR at MIC (range of individual values for 5 strains 0.8-1.5 h) and 4 x MIC (range 1.1-1.4 h). Moreover, CDR showed a significant PAE at both its MIC and 4 x MIC against S. pneumoniae (range 0.5-1.0 h and 0.9-1.1 h), H. influenzae (range 0.4-0.7 h and 0.4-0.8 h), B. catarrhalis (range 0.5-0.7 h and 0.65-0.95 h) and E. coli (range 0.5-0.6 h and 0.5-0.7 h). The good bactericidal activity and the significant PAE of CDR against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria (including respiratory pathogens) are a promising indication for the clinical efficacy of this cephalosporin in several bacterial infections.

Cefdinir is a widely used orally administered cephalosporin for community-acquired respiratory tract infections and skin and soft tissue infections (SSTI). A total of 415 nonduplicate isolates of community-acquired SSTI (CA-SSTI) were collected from medical centers in North America and susceptibility tested against cefdinir and various compounds indicated for the treatment of CA-SSTI. The cefdinir MIC(50/90) in microg/mL/% susceptible for strains of the 7 principal CA-SSTI pathogens were: oxacillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus (0.5/0.5/100%), oxacillin-susceptible coagulase-negative staphylococci (0.06/0.12/100%), group A streptococci (< or =0.03/< or =0.03/100%), group B streptococci (< or =0.03/0.06/100%), viridans group streptococci (0.25/2/88%), Klebsiella spp. (0.12/1/95%), and Escherichia coli (0.25/0.5/95%). Cefdinir was the most potent oral cephalosporin tested against staphylococci and the Enterobacteriaceae species, and 8-fold to 64-fold more potent than cephalexin against these pathogens. Beta-Hemolytic streptococci was highly susceptible to cefdinir (MIC(90), < or =0.03-0.06 microg/mL), while viridans group streptococci showed slightly elevated MIC results. Cephalexin MIC values for streptococcal strains (MIC(90), 1-32 microg/mL) were 32-fold to 64-fold higher than those of cefdinir or other oral cephalosporins evaluated. Only 0.5% of all 415 recent CA-SSTI pathogens were resistant to cefdinir (MIC, > or = 4 mg/L). Cefdinir showed a spectrum and potency comparable or superior to other orally administered beta-lactams (cephalexin).

One hundred and thirteen strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae (S. pneumoniae) were isolated from the clinical specimens of patients with respiratory tract infections between January and December 1998 in three hospitals in Hokusetsu area of Osaka. We investigated susceptibility of 113 strains of S. pneumoniae to benzylpenicillin (PCG) and other antimicrobial agents and their serotypes. 1) Of the 113 strains of S. pneumoniae isolated, 25.7% were susceptible (PSSP), 51.3% were intermediate (PISP) and 23% were resistant to benzylpenicillin (PRSP). 2) The MICs of cefaclor, cefditoren, cefpodoxime, cefdinir, erythromycin, clindamycin and minocycline were elevated, but the MIC values of cefditoren ranged from < or = 0.03 to 1.0 microgram/ml. The susceptibility of 113 strains to cefditoren was comparatively high. 3) The MIC values of imipenem, meropenem and vancomycin for 81 strains of PISP and PRSP ranged from < or = 0.015 to 1.0 microgram/ml, from < or = 0.015 to 2.0 micrograms/ml and from 0.13 to 0.5 microgram/ml, respectively. The susceptibility of these strains to three antimicrobial agents was superior to that to the other antimicrobial agents examined. 4) Of the 60 strains examined, 19, 6, and 23 serotypes were 30, 25 and 18.3%, respectively. The three serotypes were observed in PISP and PRSP with a high frequency. 5) Isolates of S. pneumoniae were 37.2% for children under 2 years of age and 30.9% for children from 2 to 6 years of age. Most of the strains isolated from these children were resistant.
