This study was designed to compare the clinical and bacteriological efficacy of three oral cephalosporins, cefuroxime axetil, cephalexin and cefadroxil, in the treatment of patients with mild to moderate infections of the skin or skin structures. A total of 330 patients were enrolled at 10 centers and were randomly assigned to receive cefuroxime axetil 250 mg (n = 107), cephalexin 500 mg (n = 111) or cefadroxil 500 mg (n = 112), twice daily for 10 days. Patients were assessed for their clinical and bacteriological responses once during treatment (3-5 days) and twice after treatment (1-3 and 10-14 days). A total of 353 bacterial isolates were obtained: Staphylococcus aureus (41%), Staphylococcus epidermidis (33%) and Streptococcus pyogenes (5%). A satisfactory clinical outcome (cure or improvement) was achieved in 97% (89/92), 89% (80/90) and 94% (82/87) of the clinically evaluable patients treated with cefuroxime axetil, cephalexin or cefadroxil, respectively (p = 0.047, cefuroxime axetil vs. cephalexin). With respect to the eradication of the bacterial pathogens, a satisfactory outcome (cure or presumed cure) was obtained in 96% (69/72), 85% (60/71) and 93% (63/68) of bacteriologically evaluable patients treated with cefuroxime axetil, cephalexin and cefadroxil, respectively (p = 0.026, cefuroxime axetil vs. cephalexin). All three study drugs were well tolerated, with adverse events affecting the gastrointestinal system most commonly reported. There were no significant differences between treatment groups in the incidence of drug-related adverse events.

We present 10 cases (6 males and 4 females) of children aged 4 to 12 years, who were diagnosed with allergy to clavulanic acid (CL) and treated in the Paediatric Allergy Section of the University Hospital Dr. Peset in Valencia from 2000 to 2005. The children reported symptoms of urticaria and angio-oedema after receiving orally-administered amoxicillin/clavulanic acid (A-CL) for an infection. Diagnosis was based on the confirmation of an IgE-mediated aetiology by an oral challenge test with amoxicillin-clavulanic acid. Following negative skin test results and CAP for penicilloyl G and V, amoxicillin, ampicillin and cefaclor < 0.35 KU/l, those patients who were allergic to clavulanic acid (positive oral challenge test) were shown to be tolerant to orally-administered Cefuroxime axetil.

The aim of the present study was to compare the efficacy and the tolerability of three different antibiotic regimens for the treatment of acute otitis media in paediatric patients. 75 children, age range 6 months-6 years, divided into three groups, were involved in the study, each group consisting of 25 randomly assigned children (Group 1, amoxicillin 40 mg/kg tid per os for 10 days; Group 2, cefuroxime axetil 30 mg/kg bid per os for 10 days; ceftriaxone 50 mg/kg single-dose i.m.). No statistically significant difference was noted in the clinical efficacy among the different groups. Although amoxicillin is the drug of choice in paediatric otitis media, single dose ceftriaxone might be considered as an interesting alternative regimen when ease of administration and cost of therapy are considered.

Syntheses are described for penicillins (4b approximately 4i, 5a and 5b) which possess a 6 beta-(2-heteroaryl-3-substituted)-propenamido side-chain of fixed geometry. In vitro results for these compounds against a range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria showed in most cases good stability against both penicillinase and TEM-1 beta-lactamase; analogues (4b approximately 4i) bearing a 2-(2-aminothiazol-4-yl) unit showed the best intrinsic activity, the cyclohexyl compound (4b) being the most promising. The 1-acetoxyethyl ester (6) of 4b was also prepared; in experimental animal studies the in vivo properties of this compound compared favourably with cefuroxime axetil and are reported together with selected in vivo data for the other compounds.

Cefuroxime axetil (CAE), an orally absorbed prodrug of cefuroxime, was evaluated for its efficacy and safety in the treatment of upper respiratory tract infections (tonsillitis, pharyngitis, sinusitis and otitis media) in general practice in the United Kingdom. A total of 385 patients aged 14 or over were enrolled in a randomized study to compare cefuroxime axetil 250 mg b.d. for 5 days with amoxycillin/clavulanate (Augmentin, AUG) 375 mg t.d.s. for 5 days. Of 175 clinically assessable patients treated with cefuroxime axetil, 136 were cured and 33 improved (97% success rate). Of 188 assessable patients given Augmentin, 155 were cured and 29 improved (98% success rate). Sixty-four patients treated with cefuroxime axetil were evaluable for bacteriological response: 47 (73%) of the causative pathogens were eradicated, as compared with 62 of 86 (72%) in patients treated with Augmentin. Thirteen out of 181 (7%) patients treated with cefuroxime axetil experienced drug-related adverse events, including 4% with diarrhoea. In the Augmentin group 24 out of 204 (12%) patients had a drug-related adverse event, including 5% with diarrhoea. In conclusion, cefuroxime axetil at a dose of 250 mg b.d. appears to be as safe and effective as Augmentin at the higher dose of 375 mg t.d.s. in the treatment of upper respiratory tract infections.

A simple, selective and precise thin-layer chromatographic method has been developed for the analysis of eight cephalosporin antibiotics, namely cephadroxil, cephalexin, cefixime, cefaclor, cefpodoxime proxetil, cefuroxime axetil, cefotaxime sodium and ceftriaxone sodium. The hR(F) values of these cephalosporins were investigated on silica gel G-zinc ferrocyanide layers. Mixing of zinc ferrocyanide with silica gel G resulted in a decrease in hR(F) values, removal of tailing and better resolutions. The influence of silica gel G-zinc ferrocyanide ratio and mobile phases on the chromatographic behavior of cephalosporins on thin layers was investigated. Cephalosporins were selectively separated in their binary and ternary synthetic mixtures and pharmaceutical formulations. Quantitative separations of cephalosporins from their synthetic mixtures were also achieved with good recoveries (97.8-100.3%).
