Studies on the Antivacterial Effect of Cephalosporin Derivatives

Abstract

The minimal inhibitory concentration(MIC) of cephalosporin derivatives, (cephaloridine, cefazolin sodium, cephradine, cephapirin aodium, cephacetrile sodium, and cephalexin from various Korean drug companies) for Staphykcoccus aureus ATCC 25923 and Escherichia coli ATCC 25922 was measured by the tube dilution method, using Mueller-Hinton broth. The results obtained were as follows: 1) The MIC of each individual cephalosporin derivative, although produced by different manufacturers, was similiar or equal. 2) Against Staphyloeoccus aureus, cephaloridine and cephapirin had the lowest MIC while cephradine and, cephalexin the highest. Against E. coli, cephaloridine and cefazolin had the lowest MIC while cephradine and cephalexin the highest. 3) The MIC against Staphylococcus aureus was l5.6 to 250 times lower than that against E. coli in all cephalosporin derivatives. 4) The MIC against Staphylococcus aureus ranges from 0.0125 to l.0ug/ml and against E. coli from 1. 56 to 25ug/ml in all cephalasporin derivatives.
