Abstract

Cefbuperazone (BMY 25182), a new cephamycin, showed activity similar to those of moxalactam and other cephalosporin-cephamycins against aerobic and anaerobic bacteria from female genital tract infections. MICs of the antimicrobial agents were ≤16 μg/ml for >97% of organisms tested. All of the anaerobic bacteria tested were susceptible to clindamycin, metronidazole, and chloramphenicol.
