Product description:Cefepime is a fourth-generation cephalosporin antibiotic developed in 1994. Cefepime has an extended spectrum of activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, with greater activity against both Gram-negative and Gram-positive organisms than third-generation agents. Cefepime hydrochloride was first marketed in 1994 and is currently marketed under various trade names including Neopime(Neomed)Maxipime, Maxcef, Cepimax, Cepimex, and Axepim. A 2007 meta-analysis suggested that when data of trials were combined, mortality was increased in patients treated with cefepime compared with other β-lactam antibiotics.
Application:Cefepime is usually reserved to treat moderate-severe nosocomial pneumonia, infections caused by multi-resistant microorganisms (e.g. Pseudomonas aeruginosa) and empirical treatment of febrile neutropenia.The use of cefepime might become less common, since it has been associated to an increase mortality when used for different types of infections.
Cefepime has good activity against important pathogens including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, and multiple drug resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae. A particular strength is its activity against Enterobacteriaceae. Whereas other cephalosporins are degraded by many plasmid- and chromosome-mediated beta-lactamases, cefepime is stable and is a front line agent when infection with Enterobacteriaceae is known or suspected.
