carbenicillin

 [kahr″ben-ĭ-sil´in]
a semisynthetic penicillin, with activity against certain gram-negative bacteria, such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa; used as the disodium salt, administered intramuscularly or intravenously. It is also used as carbenicillin indanyl sodium, administered orally in the treatment of urinary tract infections and prostatitis.

car·ben·i·cil·lin

(kar-ben'i-sil'in),
A semisynthetic extended-spectrum penicillin active against a wide variety of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.

2004) found 100% resistance to sulfadiazine and widespread resistance to amikacin, carbenicillin, erythromycin, and penicillin in Pasteurella multocida isolates from chickens and other birds from 11 separate states in India.
10,11] Most of the strains are susceptible to ceftazidime (95%), piperacillin, minocycline, and cefotaxime and resistant to aminoglycosides, tetracycline, carbenicillin, and ticarcillin.
The antibiotics investigated in the study included penicillins (ampicillin, carbenicillin and piperacillin), 1st generation cephalosporins (cephalothin), 2nd generation cephalosporins (cefuroxime, cefoxitin and cefaclor), 3rd generation cephalosporins (ceftriaxone, cefotaxime and ceftazidime), 4th generation cephalosporins (cefepime) carbapenems (imipenem) and monocyclic lactams (aztreonam).
Five different disks with different concentrations including Ampicillin (Am-10uml-1), Oxacillin (Ox-1uml-1), Carbenicillin (Py-100uml-1), Tetracycline (Te-30uml-1), and Amoxicillin (Ax-25uml-1) were used to check the antibiotic resistance profile on Mueller Hinton agar using dis diffusion agar method (Bauer et al.
Antibiotics such as Ampicillin (Fig 2), Carbenicillin (Fig 3), Streptomycin (Fig 4) have been discovered to treat diseases caused by pathogens like bacteria, fungi, virus and ricketteseas [24].
Antibiogram test performed by using Muller-Hinton agar (Hi media/ India) and different antibiotic discs (Bioanalyse/Mast and Oxoid) including: Ampicillin-Sulbactam (SAM) (10/10[micro]g), Amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (AUG) (20/10[micro]g), Amikacin (AK) (30[micro]g), Cefepime (CPM) (30 [micro]g), Cefoxitin (FOX) (30 [micro]g), Cefazolin (CZ) (30 [micro]g), Cefotaxime (CTX) (30[micro]g), Ceftazidime (CAZ) ([micro]g), Carbenicillin (CB) (100 [micro]g), Ciprofloxacin (CIP) (5[micro]g), Nalidixic acid (NA) (30 [micro]g), Gentamicin (GM) (10[micro]g), Tobramycin (TN) (10 [micro]g),Temocillin (TEM) (30[micro]g), and Tetracycline (TE) (30[micro]g).

coli showed resistance to four additional antibiotics the birds had never been exposed to: sulfonamides, ampicillin, streptomycin, and carbenicillin.
Commonly used antibiotics are ceftazidime, carbenicillin indanyl sodium, gentamicin sulfate, imipenem, mezlocillin and piperacillin sodium.
coli resulted in a significant decrease in susceptibility to a broad array of P-lactams [ampicillin, carbenicillin, piperacillin, mezlocillin, cefotaxime, cefoxitin, ceftazidime, cefoperazone, cefepime, and carbapenems], revealing a very broad substrate specificity of the VIM-1 enzyme.
