  • Tazobactam is combined with the extended spectrum β-lactam antibiotic piperacillin in the drug piperacillin/tazobactam, used in infections due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa. (
  • Tazobactam broadens the spectrum of piperacillin by making it effective against organisms that express β-lactamase and would normally degrade piperacillin. (
  • The DecisionBase 2011 report, 'Gram-Negative Infections: Poor Efficacy Against Drug-Resistant Pathogens Leaves Door Open for Emerging Therapies,' finds that, in contrast to surveyed infectious disease specialists, the majority (60 percent) of surveyed hospital pharmacy directors (who sit on their hospitals pharmacy and therapeutics committee) consider the markets sales leading therapy, piperacillin/tazobactam (Pfizers Zosyn/Tazocin, generics), to be the most efficacious treatment for gram-negative infections. (
  • Accordingly, satisfaction scores for piperacillin/tazobactam among pharmacy directors are higher than those among infectious disease specialists for all efficacy parameters surveyed. (
  • However, both infectious disease specialists and pharmacy directors indicate lower levels of satisfaction with piperacillin/tazobactams activity against Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Enterobacteriaceae,' says Decision Resources analyst Charu Vepari, PhD. 'This difference could be a result of increasing multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains and the rising number of ESBL-copies in Enterobacteriaceae, which render piperacillin/tazobactam less effective in patients with infection due to these drug-resistant pathogens. (
  • Clinical data and the opinions of interviewed thought leaders indicate that AstraZeneca/Forest Laboratories CAZ-104 and Cubists CXA-201 may have advantages over sales-leading piperacillin/tazobactam on this attribute. (
  • According to an overview of the literature and our experience, we suggest that third-generation cephalosporins, piperacillin/tazobactam, and ciprofloxacin are effective in treating invasive B. vesicularis infections, while the efficacy of ampicillin-sulbactam needs further evaluation. (
  • A. xylosoxidans is innately resistant to many antimicrobial drugs ( 2 ), except piperacillin, piperacillin-tazobactam, and imipenem, and moderately susceptible to ceftazidime (45% of susceptible isolates), which is widely used to treat infection due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa ( 3 , 4 ). (
  • Current treatment options for UTIs due to AmpC- β -lactamase-producing organisms include fosfomycin, nitrofurantion, fluoroquinolones, cefepime, piperacillin-tazobactam and carbapenems. (
  • Combinig tazobactam, a -lactamase inhibitor, with the ureidopenicillin, piperacillin, successfully restores the activity of piperacillin against -lactamase producing bacteria. (
  • Thus, piperacillin/tazobactam is highly active against most clinically important species of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, including anaerobes. (
  • We evaluated the in vitro activity of piperacillin/tazobactam against clinical isolates from a tertiary university hospital located in S o Paulo, Brazil. (
  • Imipenem resistance was not verified among Enterobacteriaceae, and piperacillin/tazobactam was the second most active -lactam against this group of bacteria (80.0 por cento susceptibility). (
  • Imipenem was uniformly active against these species (100 por cento susceptibility) and piperacillin/tazobactam was the second most active compound inhibiting 84.4 por cento of isolates. (
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa was highly resistant to all -lactams evaluated and piperacillin/tazobactam was the most active compound against this species. (
  • The acquisition of carbapenem-resistant P. aeruginosa compared with susceptible P. aeruginosa , was statistically significantly associated with prior use of piperacillin-tazobactam (3 studies: summary adjusted OR 2.64), vancomycin (3 studies: summary adjusted OR 1.76), and carbapenems (7 studies: summary adjusted OR 4.36). (
  • The broad-spectrum beta-lactams cefepime, meropenem, and piperacillin-tazobactam are the agents most studied for this dosing strategy, as they have reliable activity against most gram-negative organisms, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa. (
  • For this reason, patient's antibiotic was changed from Unasyn (Ampicillin and Sulbactam) to Zosyn (Piperacillin and Tazobactam) (click to enlarge the images). (
  • Zosyn (Piperacillin and Tazobactam) was substituted for Unasyn which was started in the ER. (
  • The reason for Zosyn (Piperacillin and Tazobactam) use was the need to cover the suspected Pseudomonas infection. (
  • A blue-green wound exudate may indicate Pseudomonas, and Zosyn (Piperacillin and Tazobactam) or other antibiotic with a good antipseudomonas coverage is needed. (
  • However, suceptibility of Elores to ESBL producing P. aeruginosa was comparable to piperacillin plus tazobactam. (
  • During hospitalization, the patient received piperacillin-tazobactam for primary bacteremia due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa over 15 days and ceftriaxone as empirical treatment for a low-grade fever, which was discontinued after negative blood cultures were obtained. (
  • Piperacillin-tazobactam was again started, a peripheral catheter (that had been in place for 8 days) was removed, and hemodialysis was begun due to worsened renal insufficiency. (
  • Ceftriaxone was substituted for piperacillin-tazobactam, as the organism was susceptible to the former. (
  • Tazobactam can be given with piperacillin in this case. (
  • Keep in mind, there are other alternatives for nosocomial pathogens including Pseudomonas that can be substituted based on clinical situation (piperacillin-tazobactam, cefepime). (
  • Empirical antibiotic treatment with vancomycin and piperacillin/tazobactam combination was initiated. (
  • The patient was empirically started on vancomycin and piperacillin/tazobactam at this point. (
  • The antibiotic susceptibility test was also performed with the same system and the strain was found to be susceptible to piperacillin-tazobactam and other antibiotics. (
  • Sensitivity assay results showed a change in pattern from resistant to intermediate in aztreonam, intermediate to resistant in ceftazidime, ciprofloxacin, imipenem, and levofloxacin while sensitive to resistant in meropenem and piperacillin/ tazobactam. (

  • Piperacillin-tazobactam and carbapenems are among the recommended empirical treatments for health care-associated complicated intra-abdominal infections. (
  • Amoxicillin-clavulanate (50/12.5 mg/kg given intramuscularly [i.m.]), piperacillin-tazobactam (25/3.125 mg/kg given intraperitoneally [i.p.]), and imipenem (30 mg/kg i.m.) were used. (
  • These results suggest that amoxicillin-clavulanate could be an alternative to imipenem treatment of infections caused by ESBL- and non-ESBL-producing E. coli strains in patients with therapeutic failure with piperacillin-tazobactam. (
  • The recommendations for empirical antimicrobial therapy for high-risk, severe, community-acquired, extrabiliary complicated IAI and health care-associated complicated IAI include piperacillin-tazobactam or carbapenems ( 6 ). (
  • In this context, it is important to note that, in some areas, many ESBL-producing and non-ESBL-producing isolates of Klebsiella pneumoniae and E. coli are susceptible in vitro to piperacillin-tazobactam and imipenem, but the MICs may increase substantially if the susceptibility tests are performed with an inoculum concentration higher than the standard one ( 8 - 11 ). (
  • MDR was defined as an isolate with resistance to at least two of the following: third-or fourth-generation cephalosporins, carbapenems or piperacillin-tazobactam. (
  • Previous retrospective and/or single-center studies have suggested that the combination of vancomycin and piperacillin/tazobactam might be associated with an increased risk of acute kidney injury. (

  • Demographic data, underlying diseases (McCabe-Jackson classification and Charlson weighted index), risk factors, antimicrobial therapy, and treatment outcome were evaluated in cases due to ESBL-positive and cases due to ESBL-N-Pa isolates. (
  • In an era of rising drug resistance among bacterial pathogens, due in large part to the empirical use of broad-spectrum antibiotics, mechanistically distinct and pathogen-specific approaches are badly needed. (
  • Therefore, one must empirically treat serious infections with a regimen that covers likely pathogens. (
  • Moreover, multidrug-resistant pathogens, once limited to hospital-acquired infections, are increasingly being detected in community-acquired infections, especially those involving the urinary and gastrointestinal tracts or in immunocompromised patients. (
  • 1 Infection with these pathogens has been associated with increased hospital length of stay, mortality, and overall healthcare costs. (
  • Most pathogens that cause nosocomial infections exhibit resistance to antimicrobial agents. (
  • Acinetobacter baumannii and Pseudomonas aeruginosa are frequent multiresistant nosocomial pathogens that cause wound and pulmonary infections in hospitalized patients. (

  • It is active against most urinary pathogens except pseudomonas and proteus. (
  • The key driver for the surge in market size is the rise in the number of incident cases for antibiotic-resistant infections, increase in the R&D activities and the emergence of multi-drug resistant pathogens along with the burden of antibiotic-resistant infections. (
  • However, several studies have shown that many patients defined as having HCAP are not at high risk for MDR pathogens [ 9-11 ] and that this designation is not a good predictor of who will have an infection with an MDR organism [ 12 ]. (
  • Owing to increasing resistance and the limited arsenal of new antibiotics, especially against Gram-negative pathogens, carefully designed antibiotic regimens are obligatory for febrile neutropenic patients, along with effective infection control. (
