Amdinocillin therapy of experimental animal infections

Am J Med. 1983 Aug 29;75(2A):48-53. doi: 10.1016/0002-9343(83)90093-1.


Amdinocillin has been shown to have broad coverage in vitro against many strains of Enterobacteriaceae. Synergy has been demonstrated in vitro with several other beta-lactam antibiotics. The rabbit model of meningitis was used to study the in vivo effectiveness of amdinocillin when combined with other beta-lactams for serious infections. Organisms that showed an enhanced in vitro bactericidal effect from the combination of amdinocillin and another beta-lactam showed more rapid elimination of the organisms in vivo.
