Active Ingredient History

  • Now
Ceforanide is a new cephalosporin with a longer elimination half-life than any currently available cephalosporin. Its activity is very similar to that of cefamandole, a second-generation cephalosporin, except that ceforanide is less active against most gram-positive organisms. The bactericidal activity of ceforanide results from the inhibition of cell wall synthesis via affinity for penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs). Ceforanide is primarily indicated in conditions like bone and joint infection, endocarditis, respiratory tract infections, skin infections, surgical infections, urinary tract infection. Rash and pruritus, and nausea, vomiting and other mild gastrointestinal side effects were noted in a few of the subjects but were mild and transient.   NCATS
