The pharmacokinetics of cefoperazone were evaluated in 25 infants (mean age, 26 days) after intramuscular and intravenous routes of administration. The levels in blood that were achieved were severalfold higher than those required to inhibit common pathogens. The mean half-life of 240 min was one-half of that observed in 1- to 2-day-old infants but about twice that seen in adults. Further evaluation is needed to study the efficacy of the drug in infants and children
