Abstract
The MIC values of desacetylcefotaxime, as determined by an agar dilution method, for several strains of Escherichia coli largely resistant to ampicillin were considerably higher than those of cefotaxime or ceftriaxone respectively. The values were, however, definitely lower than those of cefoxitin. In a mouse model of a systemic infection with a plasmid-bearing, j3-lactamase producing strain of E. coli the therapeutic potency of ampicillin, cefotaxime and desacetylcefotaxime was determined by counting the bacterial numbers per liver at days 1,3 and 7 after subcutaneous infection with about 103 viable bacteria. Desacety1cefotaxime was able to redure thc bacterial...
