In vitroantimicrobial activity of S-649266, a catechol-substituted siderophore cephalosporin, when tested against non-fermenting Gram-negative bacteria
Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy
Objectives: S-649266 is a parenteral siderophore cephalosporin antibiotic with a catechol moiety on its side chain. The in vitro antimicrobial activity of S-649266 against non-fermenting Gram-negative bacteria was evaluated and compared with the activities of meropenem, levofloxacin, cefepime, ceftazidime and piperacillin/ tazobactam. Methods: MIC values of S-649266 were determined in Mueller -Hinton broth or Iso-Sensitest broth supplemented with apo-transferrin. Results: S-649266 showed potent
... 49266 showed potent in vitro activity against the non-fermenting Gram-negative bacteria Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, including MDR strains such as carbapenemresistant A. baumannii and metallo-b-lactamase-producing P. aeruginosa. MIC 90 s of S-649266 for A. baumannii, P. aeruginosa and S. maltophilia were 2, 1 and 0.5 mg/L, respectively, whereas MIC 90 s of meropenem were .16 mg/L. S-649266 showed potent in vitro activities against A. baumannii producing carbapenemases such as OXA-type b-lactamases, and P. aeruginosa producing metallo-b-lactamases such as IMP type and VIM type. MIC 90 values for these A. baumannii strains and P. aeruginosa strains were 8 and 4 mg/L, respectively. Conclusions: S-649266 is a novel antibiotic with potent in vitro activity against a range of non-fermenting Gram-negative bacteria, including MDR strains.
