💊 Profile

Cefbuperazone is a cephamycin antibiotic similar to cefoxitin but with an N-methylthiotetrazole side-chain like cefamandole. It is given by injection as the sodium salt. Its spectrum of activity includes Enterobacteriaceae, but more especially anaerobic bacteria such as Bacteroides fragilis. Cefbuperazone does not appear to be active against cefoxitin-resistant strains of B. fragilis.
