Cefixime Usage And Synthesis
Cephalosporin antibioticsCefixime is a third-generation oral cephalosporin antibiotic, also known as Oroken, Suprax, Cefspan, in clinic used for the treatment of bacterial infectious diseases caused by Streptococcus (except Enterococci), Pneumonia chain, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Escherichia coli, Branhamella catarrhalis, Serratia bacteria, Citrobacter, Enterobacter cloacae, Enterobacter aerogenes, Haemophilus influenzae, Klebsiella, Serratia, Proteus and Haemophilus Influenzae, etc. the indications are as follow:
1. respiratory infections, such as pneumonia, tonsillitis, pharyngitis, bronchiectasis (infection), secondary infection of chronic respiratory infectious diseases ,acute and chronic bronchitis, etc.
2. urinary and reproductive tract infections, such as gonococcal urethritis, cervicitis, pyelonephritis, cystitis, gonorrhea , etc.
3. intra-abdominal infections (including cholecystitis, cholangitis, peritonitis).
4. scarlet fever, otitis media, sinusitis and so on.
Mechanism of actionAntibacterial mechanism of action in Cefixime is similar to other third-generation cephalosporins, through combined with one or more penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs), inhibits cell wall synthesis of bacterial dividing cells. PBPs is located in the cytoplasmic membrane of bacteria, possibly is catalyzing enzyme of bacterial cell wall synthesis last phase. The role of the results of this product is to make the bacteria form defective cell wall which is unstable for osmotic pressure, thereby having an antibacterial effect. Different strains have their own unique PBPs. Different affinity of Cefixime on different PBPs is the main factor affecting its activity of antibacterial spectrum.
Drug Interactions1. in combination with aminoglycoside antibiotics have synergistic antibacterial effect on certain sensitive strains.
2. there are reports that aspirin may increase the blood concentration of Cefixime.
3. in combination with aminoglycosides or other cephalosporins will increase the renal toxicity.
4. in combination with strong diuretics such as furosemide can enhance nephrotoxicity.
5. in combination with chloramphenicol may have mutual antagonism.
6. probenecid can prolong the excretion of Cefixime and elevated blood concentrations.
The above information is edited by the chemicalbook of Liu Yujie.

4. Effects on the diagnosis:
(1) It may be false positive when copper sulfate method to determine urine sugar.
(2) direct antiglobulin test (Coomb's test) were positive reaction.
(3) a small number of patients after treatment may appear increased alkaline phosphatase, serum alanine aminotransferase and serum aspartate aminotransferase, serum creatinine and blood urea nitrogen.
5. Monitoring items when must use:
