Antimicrobial activities of BMY-28142, cefbuperazone, and cefpiramide compared with those of other cephalosporins.

By N J Khan, J A Bihl, R F Schell, J L LeFrock and S J Weber


The antimicrobial activities of BMY-28142, cefbuperazone (BMY-25182; formerly T-1982), and cefpiramide (WY-44635; formerly SM-1652) were compared with those of cefmenoxime, cefoperazone, cefotaxime, ceftizoxime, and moxalactam. BMY-28142 was the most active cephalosporin against the majority of aerobic and facultatively anaerobic microorganisms studied. Its spectrum of activity was very similar to that of cefotaxime. However, BMY-28142, cefbuperazone, cefmenoxime, cefotaxime, ceftizoxime, and moxalactam were equivalent in activity and rate of killing against members of the family Enterobacteriaceae. Cefpiramide was considerably less active than the other cephalosporins against the Enterobacteriaceae
