In those investigations, administration of vancomycin was limited to two or three doses, and measurement of concentrations in CSF and serum was infrequent 7 Estimation of steady state antibiotic concentration in cerebrospinal fluid from single-dose kinetics.

Cephalosporins which contain the NMTT side chain e. Coadministration of certain antibiotics may help overcome some of these deficiencies by, for example, having more-favorable activity against biofilm colonies [ 12 ]. Hubbell, and the Toxoplasmosis Study Group. Cefotaxime has not been studied for use during labor and delivery. More importantly, penetration of vancomycin into CSF was found to be linearly correlated with the concentration of vancomycin in serum. The rabbit model has been useful for evaluating the efficacies of antibiotic regimens for the treatment of meningitis, but caution must be exercised in the extrapolation of these findings to humans because of obvious differences in the mode of drug administration, pharmacokinetics, and CSF dynamics. If a breast-feeding infant experiences an adverse effect related to a maternally administered drug, healthcare providers are encouraged to report the adverse effect to the FDA.
