Product name:Cefoperazone sodium
Description: Cefoperazone sodium salt is used in the study of drug-protein binding, expression and inhibition of penicillin-binding proteins during cell wall synthesis. It is as an antibacterial and antimicrobial agent useful for prevention of postoperative infection. It is used as an inhibitor of inactivation of alfa-antitrypsin.
Cefoperazone sodium is a third-generation, antipseudomonalcephalosporin that resembles piperacillinchemically and microbiologically. It is active against manystrains of P. aeruginosa, indole-positive Proteus spp.,Enterobacter spp., and S. marcescens that are resistant tocefamandole. It is less active than cephalothin againstGram-positive bacteria and less active than cefamandoleagainst most of the Enterobacteriaceae. Like piperacillin,cefoperazone is hydrolyzed by many of the lactamasesthat hydrolyze penicillins. Unlike piperacillin, however, itis resistant to some (but not all) of the lactamases thathydrolyze cephalosporins.Cefoperazone is excreted primarily in the bile. Hepaticdysfunction can affect its clearance from the body.
