    Aztreonam is a generic medicine name and there are several brands available for it. Some of the brands for aztreonam might be better known than aztreonam itself. If the pharmacy that's willing to deliver medicines to your home doesn't have aztreonam in stock, you can ask for one of the branded alternatives for aztreonam. Aztreonam maintains its antimicrobial activity over a pH range of 6 to 8 in vitro, as well as in the presence of human serum and under anaerobic conditions. Aztreonam has been shown to be active against most strains of the following microorganisms, both in vitro and in clinical infections as described in the INDICATIONS AND USAGE Size: KB.

      The name of this medicine is Azactam. The active ingredient in Azactam is aztreonam. Azactam is available in two strengths and each vial contains either lg or 2g aztreonam as a powder for solution for injection or infusion. Aztreonam is an antibiotic and a member of the family of medicines called monobactams. Azactam also contains L-arginine. Aztreonam is a monocyclic β-lactam (monobactam) lacking the thiazolidine ring of penicillin (see Fig. ). It is available only parenterally. It is available only parenterally. It does not bind to the PBPs of gram-positive or anaerobic microorganisms; its spectrum is limited to aerobic gram-negative species.

Aztreonam (az tree' oh nam) is a monocyclic beta-lactam compound (monobactam) that was originally isolated from Chromobacterium violaceum. It acts by binding to penicillin binding proteins inhibiting cell wall synthesis and decreasing bacterial growth.

Aztreonam is a synthetic monocyclic beta-lactam antibiotic, with the nucleus based on a simpler monobactam isolated from Chromobacterium violaceum.

Aztreonam is not affected by beta-lactamases, therefore, it is used in the treatment of gram-negative infections, especially of the meninges, bladder, and kidneys. Aztreonam is a topic covered in the Johns Hopkins ABX Guide. To view the entire topic, please sign in or purchase a subscription.

Ceftazidime seems to have a particularly strong tendency to select out for drug-resistant pathogens (e.g. MRSA, multi-drug resistant pseudomonas). Most beta-lactam. Aztreonam (azthreonam; SQ 26,) is the first member of a new class of beta-lactam antibiotics, the monobactams.

Aztreonam is selectively active against Gram-negative aerobic bacteria and inactive against Gram-positive bacteria. Thus, in vitro, aztreonam is inhibitory at low concentrations (MIC90 Cited by:   Guay DR, Koskoletos C "Aztreonam, a new monobactam antimicrobial."

DESCRIPTION. AZACTAM ® (aztreonam for injection, USP) contains the active ingredient aztreonam, a monobactam. It was originally isolated from Chromobacterium is a synthetic bactericidal antibiotic. The monobactams, having a unique monocyclic beta-lactam nucleus, are structurally different from other beta-lactam antibiotics (eg.

Aztreonam is a monocyclic beta-lactam antibiotic with potent bactericidal activity against a wide spectrum of Gram-negative aerobic pathogens. Unlike the majority of beta-lactam antibiotics, it is not an inducer in vitro of beta-lactamase activity g: mL.

Aztreonam is an antibiotic that fights bacteria. Aztreonam is used to treat severe infections of the blood, urinary tract, lungs, skin, stomach, or female reproductive organs. Aztreonam is an FDA pregnancy category B drug and lacks cross-allergenicity with β-lactams. Aztreonam induces β-lactamase production and may be synergistic with the renal toxicity and ototoxicity of aminoglycosides.

View chapter Purchase book. Aztreonam has no affinity for the PBPs of gram-positive organisms and poor affinity for anaerobic PBPs. In vitro, aztreonam has little ability to induce chromosomally mediated beta-lactamase production, although the selection of preexisting resistant organisms is.

azactam-aztreonam Drugs Drugs aztreonam overview Diseases & Conditions. Aztreonam is classically considered safe in penicillin allergies, but aztreonam is cross-allergic with some cephalosporins (especially ceftazidime).

Nafcillin or piperacillin are probably safe (see above discussion regarding the use of nafcillin or piperacillin in patients with aminopenicillin allergy). NCI Thesaurus (NCIt) Aztreonam is a parenterally administered, synthetic monobactam antibiotic that is specifically active against aerobic gram-negative bacilli is resistant to many beta-lactamases.

Aztreonam is active against Gram-negative bacteria and is still used today. The oral bioavailability of aztreonam in humans is less than 1%.

Aztreonam is similar in structure to ceftazidime and cross‐allergies may occur. While cross‐reactivity of aztreonam with other beta‐lactam antibiotics is rare, this drug should be administered with caution to any patient with a history of hypersensitivity to beta.A monobactam antibiotic, Aztreonam is used to treat or prevent infections that are likely caused by bacteria.

It terminates sensitive bacteria and reduces the growth of drug-resistant bacteria. Ensure to notify your doctor if you experience any allergic reaction.Aztreonam is a monocyclic beta-lactam (‘monobactam’) antibiotic with an antibacterial spectrum limited to Gram-negative aerobic bacteria including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Neisseria meningitidis, and Haemophilus influenzae; it should not be used alone for ‘blind’ treatment since it is not active against Gram-positive nam is also effective against Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
