Women with recurrent urinary tract infections treated with cefuroxime axetil (500 or 250 mg twice daily) for 7 days had a higher relapse rate when tested 6 weeks after the start of treatment than those given amoxycillin (250 mg three times daily). The poor performance of cefuroxime axetil is explained by variable bioavailability.

To make legitimate and meaningful cost comparisons between similar types of patients receiving drugs via the same route of administration (i.e., orally), this outpatient economic study examined the resource utilization of the 211 patients enrolled as outpatients who received oral formulations as initial treatment (levofloxacin, 103 patients; cefuroxime axetil, 108 patients). Resource utilization data and clinical trial data were collected concurrently. To generate cost estimates, Medicare cost estimates for resources were multiplied by the resource units used by patients in each treatment arm.

ceftin dosing

Cefixime is an orally active third generation cephalosporin with in vitro antibacterial activity against most important lower respiratory pathogens. The drug is active against Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis and penicillin-susceptible Streptococcus pneumoniae but not Staphylococcus aureus. Cefixime has a long elimination half-life (3 hours compared with 0.5 hours for cefaclor and 1.5 hours for cefalexin), which allows once daily administration. Several trials have established the clinical efficacy of the drug in patients with lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI). In comparative studies cefixime had similar efficacy to amoxicillin +/- clavulanic acid, cefaclor, cefalexin, cefuroxime axetil and clarithromycin. Trials evaluating the efficacy of cefixime as the oral component of intravenous to oral switch therapy have produced promising preliminary results although further carefully designed trials are needed in this area. As with certain other drugs of its class, gastrointestinal disturbances are the most frequently reported adverse events in patients taking cefixime and cases of pseudomembranous colitis have been reported. Thus, cefixime is an effective treatment for mild to moderate LRTI and may have a role as the oral component of intravenous to oral switch therapy although further well designed studies are needed to confirm initial favourable results in this important emerging area of antibacterial therapy.

ceftin suspension

The solubility of five poorly soluble drugs was enhanced by using an effervescence assisted solid dispersion (EASD) technique. EASDs were prepared by using modified fusion method. Drug and hydrophilic carrier were melted, and in this molten mixture, effervescence was generated by adding effervescence couple comprising organic acid (citric acid) and carbonic base (sodium bicarbonate). Solubility of drug powders, solid dispersions, and EASDs was determined at 25°C using shake flask method. Atorvastatin calcium, cefuroxime axetil, clotrimazole, ketoconazole, and metronidazole benzoate were estimated using a spectrophotometer at 246, 280, 260, 230, and 232 nm (λ max), respectively. Solubility of atorvastatin calcium (from 100 to 345 μg/ml), cefuroxime axetil (from 441 to 1948 μg/ml), clotrimazole (from 63 to 677 μg/ml), ketoconazole (from 16 to 500 μg/ml), and metronidazole benzoate (from 112 to 208 μg/ml) in EASDs was enhanced by 3.45-, 4.4-, 10.7-, 31.2-, and 1.8-fold, respectively. Scanning electron micrographs of drug powder, solid dispersion, and EASDs were compared. Scanning electron micrographs of EASDs showed a uniform distribution of drug particles in the carrier matrix. Morphology (size and shape) of cefuroxime axetil particles was altered in solid dispersion as well as in EASD. EASDs showed better solubility enhancement than conventional solid dispersions. The present technique is better suitable for drugs having a low melting point or melt without charring. Effervescence assisted fusion technique of preparing solid dispersions can be employed for enhancing solubility, dissolution, and bioavailability of poorly soluble drugs.

Organisms were isolated from the pretreatment middle ear fluid specimens of 177 of 244 (73%) patients undergoing tympanocentesis, with the primary pathogens being Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis (37, 35 and 12% of isolates, respectively). Pathogens were eradicated or presumed to be eradicated in 92% (24 of 26), 84% (32 of 38) and 95% (36 of 38) of bacteriologically evaluable patients treated with CAE for 5 or 10 days or with AMX/CL, respectively. A satisfactory clinical outcome (cure or improvement) occurred in 69% (101 of 147), 70% (121 of 173) and 74% (131 of 177) of clinically evaluable patients treated with CAE (5 days), CAE (10 days) or AMX/CL, respectively. Treatment with AMX/CL was associated with a significantly higher incidence of drug-related adverse events than was treatment with CAE for either 5 or 10 days (P < 0.001), primarily reflecting a higher incidence of drug-related gastrointestinal adverse events (34% vs. 17 and 12%, respectively; P < 0.001), particularly diarrhea.

This investigation describes the development of an intragastric drug-delivery system for cefuroxime axetil. The 3(2) full factorial design was employed to evaluate contribution of hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) K4M/HPMC K100 LV ratio (polymer blend) and sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) on drug release from HPMC matrices. Tablets were prepared using direct compression technique. Formulations were evaluated for in vitro buoyancy and drug release study using United States Pharmacopeia (USP) 24 paddle-type dissolution apparatus using 0.1N HCl as a dissolution medium. Multiple regression analysis was performed for factorial design batches to evaluate the response. All formulations had floating lag times below 2 minutes and constantly floated on dissolution medium for more than 8 hours. It was found that polymer blend and SLS significantly affect the time required for 50% of drug release, percentage drug release at 12 hours, release rate constant, and diffusion exponent (P < .05). Also linear relationships were obtained between the amount of HPMC K100 LV and diffusion exponent as well as release rate constant. Kinetic treatment to dissolution profiles revealed drug release ranges from anomalous transport to case 1 transport, which was mainly dependent on both the independent variables.

A total of 142 patients, 71 (mean age: 83.3 (+/-6 SD), M/F ratio: 1.1) in the IV group, and 71 (mean age: 81.5 (+/-7 SD), M/F ratio: 1.5) in the sequence group, were included in the study. Eighty-three (58.4%) presented with radiologically confirmed pneumonia (CAP) and 59 (41.6%) with non-pneumonic LRTI (NPLRTI) (p=ns between study groups). Treatment was considered effective in 84.5% (60/71) of patients in the IV group and 80.3% (57/71) in the sequence group (p=ns). Therapy failed in 15% (21/142) of the study population (p=ns between study groups) and, after day 3 of therapy, 8.45% (6/71) failed in both study groups. By the end of treatment, two patients had died in each study group, and total in-hospital mortality was 8.5% (12/142, p=ns between study groups). The length of hospital stay (LOS) did not differ between the two study groups.

Levofloxacin is the L-form of the fluoroquinolone antibacterial agent, ofloxacin. In in vitro studies, levofloxacin demonstrated a broad range of activity against Gram-positive and -negative organisms and anaerobes. The drug is more active against Gram-positive organisms than ciprofloxacin, but less active than newer fluoroquinolones such as gatifloxacin. Its activity against Streptococcus pneumoniae is unaffected by the presence of penicillin resistance. In several randomised controlled trails, 5 to 14 days' treatment with intravenous and/or oral levofloxacin proved an effective therapy for upper and lower respiratory tract infections. In patients with mild to severe community-acquired pneumonia (CAP), intravenous and/or oral levofloxacin 500mg once or twice daily was as effective as intravenous and/or oral gatifloxacin, clarithromycin, azithromycin or amoxicillin/clavulanic acid. Overall, clinical response rates with levofloxacin ranged from 86 to 95% versus 88 to 96% with comparator agents; bacteriological response rates were 88 to 95% and 86 to 98%, respectively. Sequential (intravenous +/- oral switch) therapy with levofloxacin 750mg once daily was as effective as intravenous imipenem/cilastatin (+/- oral switch to ciprofloxacin) in patients with severe nosocomial pneumonia. Generally, oral levofloxacin 250 or 500mg once daily was at least as effective as oral cefaclor, cefuroxime axetil, clarithromycin or moxifloxacin in patients with acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis as assessed by either clinical or bacteriological response rates. This approach also provided similar efficacy to amoxicillin/ clavulanic acid or clarithromycin in patients with acute sinusitis. Sequential therapy with levofloxacin 500mg twice daily for 7 to 14 days' was as effective as intravenous imipenem/cilastatin in patients with suspected bacteraemia. Oral levofloxacin 500mg once daily for 7 to 10 days was also an effective treatment in patients with uncomplicated skin and skin structure infections, and in those with complicated urinary tract infections. A higher dosage of sequential levofloxacin 750mg once daily proved as effective as intravenous ticarcillin/clavulanic acid (+/- oral switch to amoxicillin/clavulanic acid) in the treatment of complicated skin and skin structure infections. Pharmacoeconomic studies suggest that levofloxacin may be cost-saving in comparison to conventional therapies.

A total of 426 cultures for nonspecific organisms, made at the Bacteriological Laboratory of the Antituberculosis Dispensary, were analyzed. Escherichia coli, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus were most common among the isolated pathogens. Evaluation of antibiotic sensitivity by using the disks showed augmentin, cefuroxime axetil, and ciprofloxacin to be most effective. Streptomycin and rifampicin resistance of pathogens was highest. In patients with tuberculosis, the non-tuberculosis flora showed resistance to the drugs widely used in general practice (ampicillin, carbenicillin, oxacillin, lincomycin, erythromycin). Among macrolides, rovamycin was more effective than erythromycin. It is concluded that when wide-spectrum antibiotics are prescribed, new and potent drugs should be used in a tuberculosis hospital.

Out of the 29436 emergencies studied on 30 days, 821 were diagnosed with acute otitis media. Fifteen point seven percent of the cases were already receiving antibiotics (22% amoxicillin clavulanate, 20% amoxicillin and 11% cefuroxime axetil). For the treatment, at discharge, of the 93% an antibiotic was prescribed (amoxicillin clavulanate in 41%, amoxicillin in 15%, cefuroxime axetil in 11%, cefaclor 6% and azithromycin 5%). Two point eight percent of the children were admitted. According to the guidelines of the panel of experts consulted, appropriateness was 61% for antibiotics of first choice, 12% for drugs of alternate use and 25% for inadequate treatment. The different hospitals presented significant variability in the type of antibiotic used and the appropriateness of such.

These findings establish the efficacy of levofloxcin for the treatment of pneumococcal pneumonia, a major treatment challenge in community-acquired pneumonia. This compound has its place in the context of good use of antibiotics. Levofloxacin should be used in priority for patients with risk factors for complications with rapidly unfavorable course or as second intention treatment when re-evaluating insufficient therapeutic response.

ceftin antibiotic dose

Development of resistance to antibiotics is a major problem worldwide. The normal oropharyngeal flora, the intestinal flora and the skin flora play important roles in this development. Within a few days after the onset of antibiotic therapy, resistant Escherichia coli, Haemophilus influenzae and Staphylococcus epidermidis can be detected in the normal flora of volunteers or patients. Horizontal spread of the resistance genes to other species, e.g. SALMONELLA: spp., Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pneumoniae, occurs by conjugation or transformation. An ecologically sound antibiotic policy favours the use of antibiotics with little or no impact on the normal flora. Prodrug antibiotics which are not active against the bacteria in the mouth and the intestine (before absorption) and which are not excreted to a significant degree via the intestine, saliva or skin are therefore preferred. Prodrugs such as pivampicillin, bacampicillin, pivmecillinam and cefuroxime axetil are favourable from an ecological point of view. Experience from Scandinavia supports this, since resistance to mecillinam after 20 years of use is low (about 5%) and stable.

A study of the efficacy of cefuroxime axetil was conducted for the treatment of acute sinusitis in childhood. Thirty-nine patients aged 5-14 years were given cefuroxime axetil 20 mg/kg/day divided into two doses for seven days. The diagnosis of acute sinusitis was based on history, physical examination, and radiological findings. The results of throat cultures before treatment were 17 patients with group A beta-haemolytic streptococci, seven patients with pneumococci, and two patients with Staphylococcus aureus; in the remainder of the patients only normal throat flora were isolated. In 36 patients (92%) a satisfactory improvement was reported at the end of the treatment. It was found that cefuroxime axetil was efficaceous for the treatment of sinusitis in childhood.

Cefditoren, a broad-spectrum orally administered cephalosporin ester, has documented in vitro efficacy against many Gram-positive and -negative pathogens and stability against clinically important beta-lactamases. We have reviewed the microbiology and the pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic literature regarding the spectrum and potency of this newer agent against the major etiologic buy ceftin agents of community-acquired respiratory infection, (Streptococcus pneumoniae, Hemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis), as well as the Enterobacteriaceae and non-enteric Gram-negative bacilli, staphylococci, and other aerobic and anaerobic Gram-positive cocci. The level of cefditoren activity against S. pneumoniae (MIC(90,) 0.5 microg/mL) was superior to all marketed oral cephalosporins and at least equal to amoxicillin +/- clavulanate. H. influenzae (MIC(90,) 0.016-0.03 microg/mL) and M. catarrhalis (MIC(90,) 0.06-0.5 microg/mL) were also very susceptible to cefditoren. In contrast to cefixime and ceftibuten, cefditoren was active against oxacillin-susceptible staphylococci (MIC(90,) < or = 1 microg/mL) at a level comparable to cefuroxime axetil, cefaclor or cefprozil. Enterococci, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and most anaerobes (Gram-negative) were not cefditoren-susceptible, but most Enterobacteriaceae, beta-haemolytic and viridans group streptococci were highly susceptible. Furthermore, an overview of key in vitro susceptibility testing methods and issues including disk diffusion testing and Etest (AB BIODISK, Solna, Sweden) method accuracy, interpretive criteria, and pharmacodynamic considerations for the selection of a breakpoint concentration are provided. The rapid bactericidal nature of the antibacterial activity of cefditoren, its post antibiotic effect, penicillin binding protein targets, and extent of beta-lactamase stability are all favorable qualities. In conclusion, this orally administered (BID) beta-lactam possesses promise for use against commonly isolated problematic respiratory tract pathogens such as penicillin-non-susceptible pneumococci and beta-lactamase-positive M. catarrhalis or H. influenzae. Success in the clinical trials will further define the role of cefditoren in this era of emerging resistant bacterial pathogens.

The concentrations of cefuroxime in human alveolar macrophages (AM), epithelial lining fluid (ELF), bronchial mucosal biopsies and serum were measured after a single dose, equivalent to 500 mg of cefuroxime base, given in the form of the orally-administered pro-drug, cefuroxime axetil. Fourteen patients undergoing fibreoptic bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar lavage were studied. The mean ELF concentration was 0.7 mg/L, that of bronchial biopsies was 1.8 mg/kg and that of serum 3.5 mg/L. AM-associated cefuroxime was detected in nine patients. To assess the in-vitro activity of the concentrations achieved at the potential sites of infection, buy ceftin clinical isolates of common respiratory pathogens were exposed to two concentrations of cefuroxime, based on the observed concentrations in ELF and bronchial mucosa. ELF and mucosal site concentrations were effective against Streptococcus pneumoniae (except one strain with reduced susceptibility to benzyl penicillin) and Haemophilus influenzae. The ELF concentration was less effective against Moraxella catarrhalis.

In a prospective randomized multicenter study, 308 children, ages 2 to 15 years, were randomized to receive either cefuroxime axetil suspension (N = 152; 20 mg/kg/day twice daily) for 4 days, penicillin suspension (N = 156; 45 mg/kg/day divided three times daily) for 10 days, of whom 97 and 103, respectively, had culture-proved group A beta-hemolytic Streptococcus infection. Two to 4 days after completion of the treatment, group A beta-hemolytic Streptococcus were eradicated from 85 of 97 (87.6%) children taking cefuroxime and from 90 of 103 (87.4%) taking penicillin; respective clinical cure rates were 94.8% and 96.1%. Clinical signs and symptoms resolved significantly more rapidly with cefuroxime (P < 0.05). At 28 to 32 days posttreatment the eradication of the primary isolate was confirmed in 94.4 and 91.9% of cefuroxime axetil and penicillin-treated patients, respectively. Drug-related adverse events (mainly gastrointestinal and cutaneous reactions buy ceftin ) were reported in 2.1 and 2.7% of the cefuroxime- and penicillin-treated patients, respectively. Results indicated that a 4-day treatment with cefuroxime axetil was as effective and well-tolerated as the conventional 10-day treatment with penicillin in children with acute group A beta-hemolytic Streptococcus pharyngitis.

Forty-six patients received cefuroxime axetil (group C) and 44, phenoxymethyl penicillin (group P). The two groups differed in terms of age (patients in group C were younger), but no other differences in demographic and clinical pre-treatment characteristics were present. The clinical course during the post-treatment period revealed no significant differences between the two groups: the duration of erythema migrans (7.1 +/- 7.5 days in group C, 10.6 +/- 19.3 days in group P) and the appearance of minor manifestations buy ceftin of Lyme borreliosis (8.8% in group C, 9.1% in group P) were comparable; no major manifestations were recorded. Twelve months after antibiotic treatment all patients were free of symptoms. The patients treated with cefuroxime axetil had more drug-related adverse effects than did those treated with phenoxymethyl penicillin (26.1% versus 6.8%, p = 0.0301). "Herxheimer's reaction" at the beginning of treatment was identified more often in group C than in group P, but the difference was not statistically significant.

The objectives of this study were to determine the oral bioavailability of cefuroxime (C) and to evaluate the pharmacokinetic model that best describes the plasma concentration behaviour following single intravenous (IV), intraperitoneal (IP) and oral single doses. The same dose of C was administered by IV, IP and oral routes to three separate groups of rats (2.02 mg of cefuroxime axetil (CA) by the oral route or 1.78 mg of cefuroxime sodium (CNa) by IV and IP route). A two-compartment open model without lag time can predict the C disposition kinetics. The influence of the administration route on the pharmacokinetic parameters and AUC values was investigated by buy ceftin means of a one-way analysis of variance test. The results indicated that the first-pass effect in the intestine and liver reduce oral bioavailability when the drug is administered orally. Cefuroxime bioavailability after oral and IP administration estimated from the plasma levels was nearly 24 and 75%, respectively.

The two factors that improve significantly compliance are administration in two doses by day (OR 2.2 [95% CI 1 6-3]) and acceptability ≥80% (OR 2.6, [95% CI 1.9-3.7]). The acceptability was better for amoxicillin-clavulanic acid 65.4% (95% CI [57.6 to 72.4]) than for cefpodoxime 47.1% (95% CI [43.8-50.4]) or cefuroxime axetil 26% (95% [CI 15.9-39.6]). Conversely, cefpodoxime proxetil obtained a better score for compliance 91.8% (95% CI [89.8 to 93.4) as amoxicillin-clavulanic acid 84.6% (95%CI 80.8 to 87.8) because of its mode of administration in two doses per day. There is no difference between the amoxicillin clavulanic acid reference product and its generics as a whole, however a large variability exists between generics. If, for antibiotics prescribed in two doses per day, the two administrations by day are roughly equidistant, it is not the same for those prescribed three times a day: indeed, while the doses taken are identical, only four hours separate the first intake of the morning from the second intake in mid-day and buy ceftin more than 12 hours between the evening dose from the next morning intake.

Community-acquired acute lower respiratory tract infections are a common cause of illness, accounting for millions of physician visits and prescriptions each year. Cefixime is an extended-spectrum oral cephalosporin with activity against Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Moraxella catarrhalis, the most commonly isolated bacterial Diamox Cost Australia pathogens. This review presents the results of eight US studies comparing the efficacy and safety of cefixime with those of amoxicillin, amoxicillin/clavulanate, cefaclor, cephalexin, and cefuroxime axetil in the treatment of patients with acute lower respiratory tract infections. Data for 211 cefixime-treated patients and a range of 19 to 49 patients in the comparator treatment groups were included in the efficacy analysis. Clinical success (cure or improvement) was observed in 94% of cefixime-treated patients; clinical success rates in the comparator treatment groups ranged from 97% for cefuroxime axetil and cefaclor to 79% for amoxicillin/clavulanate. At the end of treatment, the overall eradication rate in the cefixime treatment group was 92% and ranged from 76% (cefaclor) to 98% (cefuroxime axetil) in the comparator treatment groups. The percentage of persistent organisms was highest in the cefaclor (24%) and cephalexin (21%) treatment groups. With the exception of the cephalexin group (4%), the incidence of patients who reported adverse experiences was similar across treatment groups (34% to 50%). Those involving the gastrointestinal tract were by far the most common, and most adverse experiences were rated as mild or moderate in severity.

Acute bronchitis is the ninth most common outpatient illness seen by physicians in the United States. Oral antibiotic treatment is usually directed empirically against the most common bacterial pathogens associated with acute bronchitis, such as Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Moraxella catarrhalis. Although cefuroxime axetil and cefixime are both approved in the United States for treatment of acute bronchitis, currently they have not undergone direct clinical comparison for this indication. This randomized, investigator-blind, multicenter study was designed to compare the efficacy and safety of 250 mg cefuroxime axetil administered twice daily with that of 400 mg cefixime administered once daily in the treatment of acute bronchitis. Outpatients had to be greater-than-or-equal12 years of age and have signs and symptoms of acute bronchitis to be eligible for this study. Patients were randomly assigned to receive 10 days of oral treatment with either 250 mg cefuroxime axetil taken twice daily or 400 mg cefixime taken once daily. Patients were assessed for both clinical and bacteriologic responses once during treatment (3--5 days) and twice after treatment (1--3 days and 14 days). Bacteriologic assessments were based on sputum specimen cultures obtained pretreatment and posttreatment when possible. Of 465 patients with acute bronchitis who were enrolled in the study, 227 received cefuroxime axetil and 238 received cefixime. Organisms were isolated from the pretreatment sputum specimens in 172 of the 465 (37%) patients, with the primary pathogens being Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Morazella catarrhalis, and Staphylococcus aureus (30%, 14%, 14%, and 14% of isolates, respectively). A satisfactory clinical outcome (cure or improvement) was achieved in 88% (130 of 148) and 91% (152 of 167) of the clinically evaluable patients who had received cefuroxime axetil or cefixime, respectively (p = 0.36). Regarding the eradication of bacterial pathogens, a satisfactory outcome (cure or presumed cure) was obtained in 89% (47 of 53) and 91% (41 of 45) of bacteriologically evaluated patients who had received cefuroxime axetil or cefixime, respectively (p = 0.75). Treatment with cefixime was associated Ceftin 250mg Tab with a significantly higher incidence of drug-related gastrointestinal adverse events than was treatment with cefuroxime axetil (18% versus 10%, respectively; p = 0.01). This difference primarily reflects a higher incidence of drug-related diarrhea (15% versus 5%, p = 0.001). These results indicated the cefuroxime axetil taken twice daily is as effective as cefixime taken once daily in the treatment of acute bronchitis and that cefuroxime axetil produces fewer gastrointestinal adverse events, particularly diarrhea.

A retrospective study conducted by interviewing French gastroenterologists was performed with the objective of evaluating the incidence and etiology of pseudomembranous colitis in cases where the diagnosis has been confirmed by coloscopy. This study allowed to collect data on 878 pseudomembranous colitis observed by 438 gastroenterologists within 6 months. It shows evidence of the importance of various antibiotics in the etiology of pseudomembranous colitis (89% of the identified cases). The following is the list of antibiotics or antibiotic classes, in increasing order of their association with the development of pseudomembranous colitis: macrolides which are very rarely associated, a group represented by cefaclor, cefuroxime axetil and cyclins, which are rarely associated, a third group constituted by amoxicillin, ofloxacin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole which appears to be 2 to Cialis Dosage Daily 3 times more frequently associated than the previous group, and a fourth group of antibiotics, represented by cefixime and the association amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, which is 7 times more frequently associated than antibiotics of the second group.

Cefuroxime axetil in a single daily dose of 250 mg for ten days was given to Astelin Pediatric Dosage 75 women with symptoms of acute uncomplicated urinary tract infections. Fifty-nine women were found to have significant bacteriuria but one was excluded as urethral catheterization was required. The dose was taken at night with a milk drink. Ninety-five per cent of women had a clear urine during treatment. Compliance studies showed that antimicrobial activity was detectable in early morning urines up to 8-10 h after the dose. Post treatment, 93% of women were clear of their original infecting organism but five women had become reinfected with a different strain of Escherichia coli. At the six week follow up 98% of women were still clear although one further reinfection had occurred. The overall cure rate was 86%, including 11% reinfection. Adverse events developed in 17 (23%) of the 75 women with candida vaginitis (8) and diarrhoea (4) being most common. Cefuroxime axetil is a valuable therapy for the treatment of urinary tract infection particularly when due to beta-lactamase producing bacteria.
