PURPOSE To investigate the predisposing factors, clinical presentations, treatment results, and prognosis of keratitis caused by mixed infectious agents (bacteria and fungi). METHODS This is a retrospective study of cases with mixed bacterial and fungal keratitis, presented between January 2000 and December 2007 at a tertiary referral hospital. The study(More)
Cefodizime (CDZM), a new cephem antibiotic, was studied in terms of its pharmacokinetics and clinical efficacy in the field of obstetrics and gynecology, and the results are summarized as follows: Concentrations of CDZM in serum and genital tissues following 1 g drip infusion (30 min.) were determined and good penetration of CDZM into tissues was(More)
Pharmacokinetic studies and clinical evaluations of ceftazidime (CAZ) were carried out in perinatal mothers and infants, and following results were obtained. The CAZ was promptly absorbed after intravenous injection or intravenous drip infusion in pregnant women, producing dose-related peak serum levels. Placental transference to the fetus was good. After(More)
A combination of sulbactam, a beta-lactamase inhibitor, plus cefoperazone (SBT/CPZ = 1/1) was studied in the field of obstetrics and gynecology, and the results were following: Absorption and transfer into genital organ tissues were good. With the 1g intravenous injection the maximum serum concentrations in the uterine artery were 88.6 micrograms/ml for CPZ(More)
Fosfomycin sodium (FOM-Na) was studied both fundamentally and clinically in the field of obstetrics and gynecology with following results. It showed good transference into the uterine tissues when given intravenously. The peak concentrations achieved in the uterine tissues following intravenous administration of 2 g of FOM-Na were 26.56 to 53.48(More)
Cefuzonam (CZON), a new cephem antibiotic agent, was studied in terms of its pharmacokinetics and clinical efficacy in the field of obstetrics and gynecology, and the results were summarized as follows. 1. The absorption and the tissue penetration of CZON into intrapelvic genital organs were good. The peak serum level in uterine artery after an intravenous(More)
Laboratory studies and clinical evaluation of ceftriaxone (CTRX) were carried out with mothers and infants in perinatal period. The presence of synergistic effect between CTRX and amniotic fluid were studied using a broth dilution method. Stronger effects were recognized when both agents were present together compared to each agent alone by the fact that(More)
Ceftriaxone (Ro 13-9904, CTRX), a new cephem antibiotic, was studied in the field of obstetrics and gynecology, and the following results were obtained. The absorption and tissue penetration of CTRX into intrapelvic genital organs were good. The peak serum level in the uterine artery after a single intravenous injection and that after an intravenous drip(More)
Pharmacokinetic, bacteriological and clinical studies on aztreonam (AZT) in the perinatal period were carried out with the following summary of the results. Antibacterial effects of AZT on bacterial growth of Escherichia coli (MIC 12.5 micrograms/ml) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (MIC 50 micrograms/ml) in amniotic fluid were determined and it was found that(More)
