Information @ a Glance

  • The cephalosporins are a class of β-lactam antibiotics originally derived from the fungus Acremonium, which was previously known as "Cephalosporium". Together with cephamycins they constitute a subgroup of β-lactam antibiotics called cephems.
  • Cephalosporins are indicated for the prophylaxis and treatment of infections caused by bacteria susceptible to this particular form of antibiotic. First-generation cephalosporins are active predominantly against Gram-positive bacteria, and successive generations have increased activity against Gram-negative bacteria (albeit often with reduced activity against Gram-positive organisms).
  • The classification of cephalosporins into "generations" is commonly practised, although the exact categorization of cephalosporins is often imprecise. For example, the fourth generation of cephalosporins is not recognized as such, in Japan.
  • In Japan, cefaclor is classed as a first-generation cephalosporin, even though in the United States it is a second-generation one; and cefbuperazone, cefminox, and cefotetan are classed as second-generation cephalosporins. Cefmetazole and cefoxitin are classed as third-generation cephems. Flomoxef, latamoxef are in a new class called oxacephems.
  • Most first-generation cephalosporins were originally spelled "ceph-" in English- speaking countries.
  • This continues to be the preferred spelling in the United States and Australia, while European countries (including the United Kingdom) have adopted the International Nonproprietary Names, which are always spelled "cef-".
  • Newer first- generation cephalosporins and all cephalosporins of later generations are spelled "cef-", even in the United States. Some state that, although cephalosporins can be divided into five or even six generations, the usefulness of this organization system is of limited clinical relevance.
  • Having launched nearly a dozen drugs in the rs 1,000-crore cephalosporin market, aurobindo pharma has launched a 4th generation broad spectrum injectible cephalosporin for the first time in Hyderabad, making it only the second company in the world after pharma major aventis pharmaceuticals.
