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.
Mezlocillin sodium and sulbactam sodium (4:1) and ribavirin were administered, but the patient did not improve.
The antibiotics included were piperacillin (100[micro]g), cefotaxime (30[micro]g), ceftazidime (30[micro]g), cefoperazone (75[micro]g), tobramycin (30[micro]g), ceftriaxone (30[micro]g), amikacin (30[micro]g), netilmicin (30[micro]g), ofloxacin (5[micro]g), ciprofloxacin (5[micro]g), imipenem (10[micro]g), mezlocillin (75[micro]g), azlocillin (75[micro]g), ticarcillin (75[micro]g).
The older antipseudomonal penicillins (carbenicillin, ticarcillin) have largely been replaced by newer compounds (piperacillin, mezlocillin, azlocillin) which are thought to be more potent in vitro against P.

All pelvic pathogens can be treated with extended-spectrum penicillins, including mezlocillin and piperacillin and combination agents such as ampicillin-sulbactam (Unasyn), piperacillin-tazobactam (Zosyn), and ticarcillin-clavulanic acid (Timentin).
avium were consistently resistant to penicillin and cefuroxime but susceptible to mezlocillin, piperacillin, gentamicin, amikacin, and cefoperazone (6).
