The antibacterial in vitro activity of carumonam, a new monobactam, and cefpirome, a new cephalosporin, was studied on 483 hospital strains resistant to gentamicin and cephalothin, in comparison with amikacin, azlocillin, aztreonam, cefmenoxim, cefoperazone, cefotaxim, cefsulodin (for Pseudomonas), ceftazidime, ceftriaxone, cefuroxim, chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, doxycycline, enoxacin, netilmicin, norfloxacin, pefloxacin, piperacillin, rifampicin, tobramycin and trimethoprim. In general the two compounds have a very good in vito activity on Enterobacteriaceae but are less active on non-f…
