Pediatrics Studies of Zosyn in pediatric patients suggest a similar safety profile to that seen in adults. In this trial, treatment-emergent adverse events were reported by patients, 73
Lower respiratory tract infections.
Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus aureus penicillinase-producing strainsStaphylococcus epidermidis, Enterobacter species, Pseudomonas aeruginosa Skin and skin structure infections.
Staphylococcus aureus penicillinase-producing strains Polymicrobic infections. However, monobacterial infections due to these organisms are usually treated with narrower spectrum antibiotics, such as penicillin G.
Although clinical improvement has been observed in patients with cystic fibrosis, chronic pulmonary disease, and lower respiratory tract infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, bacterial eradication may not necessarily be achieved.
During therapy of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections, periodic susceptibility testing should be done when clinically appropriate. When culture and susceptibility information are available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying antibacterial therapy.
In the absence of such data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy. Pseudomembranous colitis has been reported with nearly all antibacterial agents, including imipenem-cilastatin sodium, and may range in severity from mild to life threatening.
Therefore, it is important to consider this diagnosis in patients who present with diarrhea subsequent to the administration of antibacterial agents. Treatment with antibacterial agents alters the normal flora of the colon and may permit overgrowth of clostridia.
Studies indicate that a toxin produced by Clostridium difficile is one primary cause of "antibiotic-associated colitis". After the diagnosis of pseudomembranous colitis has been established, therapeutic measures should be initiated.
Mild cases of pseudomembranous colitis usually respond to drug discontinuation alone. In moderate to severe cases, consideration should be given to management with fluids and electrolytes, protein supplementation and treatment with an antibacterial drug clinically effective against C.
These experiences have occurred most commonly in patients with CNS disorders e. However, there have been reports of CNS adverse experiences in patients who had no recognized or documented underlying CNS disorder or compromised renal function.
Therefore, close adherence to the dosing guidelines for these patients is recommended. Close adherence to the recommended dosage and dosage schedules is urged, especially in patients with known factors that predispose to convulsive activity.
Anticonvulsant therapy should be continued in patients with known seizure disorders. If focal tremors, myoclonus, or seizures occur, patients should be evaluated neurologically, placed on anticonvulsant therapy if not already instituted, and the dosage of PRIMAXIN I.
If superinfection occurs during therapy, appropriate measures should be taken.
They do not treat viral infections e. Skipping doses or not completing the full course of therapy may 1 decrease the effectiveness of the immediate treatment and 2 increase the likelihood that bacteria will develop resistance and will not be treatable by PRIMAXIN I.
These drugs should not be used concomitantly unless the potential benefits outweigh the risks. Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility Long term studies in animals have not been performed to evaluate carcinogenic potential of imipenem-cilastatin.
Genetic toxicity studies were performed in a variety of bacterial and mammalian tests in in vivo and in vitro. The tests used were: V79 mammalian cell mutagenesis assay imipenem-cilastatin sodium alone and imipenem aloneAmes test cilastatin sodium alone and imipenem aloneunscheduled DNA synthesis assay imipenem-cilastatin sodium and in vivo mouse cytogenetics test imipenem-cilastatin sodium.Persons using assistive technology might not be able to fully access information in this file.

INDICATIONS. ZOSYN is a combination product consisting of a penicillin-class antibacterial, piperacillin, and a β-lactamase inhibitor, tazobactam, indicated for the treatment of patients with moderate to severe infections caused by susceptible isolates of the designated bacteria in the conditions listed below.
Intra-abdominal Infections. Imipenem. To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of PRIMAXIN I.V. **/* and other antibacterial drugs, PRIMAXIN I.V.
should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria.
For Intravenous Injection Only. Description. Microbiology Unknown Lab Report Serratia Marcescens. chemical agents all affect the expression of genes. In this lab, the effect of temperature change on the gene which codes for a red pigment called prodigiosin of bacterium Serratia marcescens is being tested.
Serratia marcescens is usually found in soil and plants, and the accumulation of prodigiosin in the bacterial cells makes them appear red.
