Amdinocillin: use alone or in combination with cefoxitin or carbenicillin-ticarcillin.

One hundred fifty-five patients with 157 febrile episodes were treated with amdinocillin or amdinocillin and cefoxitin as second-line therapy, or amdinocillin and ticarcillin or carbenicillin as initial therapy in three separate studies. Overall responses were 57 percent, 55 percent, and 54 percent for amdinocillin, amdinocillin-cefoxitin, and amdinocillin-ticarcillin or amdinocillin-carbenicillin, respectively. In all three studies, patients with septicemia responded less often than patients with other infections. Most patients were profoundly neutropenic at the initiation of therapy, and both the initial neutrophil level and neutrophil trend during therapy influenced response. A significant number of superinfections occurred when amdinocillin alone was used. Although amdinocillin, alone or in combination with cefoxitin, appeared effective as second-line therapy in infections with organisms shown sensitive in vitro, the combination of amdinocillin and ticarcillin or carbenicillin was only moderately effective in initial therapy for neutropenic, febrile, cancer patients.[1]
