Active Ingredient History
Aztreonam is the first monocyclic beta-lactam antibiotic (monobactam) originally isolated from Chromobacterium violaceum. Aztreonam has a high affinity for the protein-binding protein 3 (PBP-3) of aerobic gram-negative bacteria. Most of these organisms are inhibited and killed at low concentrations of the drug. Aztreonam must be administered as an intravenous or intramuscular injection (AZACTAM®), or inhaled (CAYSTON®). Aztreonam for injection is indicated for the treatment of the following infections caused by susceptible gram-negative microorganisms: urinary tract, lower respiratory tract, skin and skin-structure, intra-abdominal and gynecologic infections as well as for septicemia. Aztreonam for inhalation solution is indicated to improve respiratory symptoms in cystic fibrosis patients with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. NCATS
