Abstract

The MICs of the new antimicrobial agents cefmetazole, cefotetan, and amoxicillin-clavulanic acid were compared with the MICs of other antimicrobial agents against anaerobic bacteria from endometrial cultures from women with pelvic inflammatory disease or endometritis. The activity of cefmetazole was similar tot that of cefoxitin and generally greater than that of cefotetan. Amoxicillin-clavulanic acid was generally more active than all cephamycins tested.
