10. Comparison of In Vitro Antibacterial Activity of Three Oral Cephalosporins: Cefaclor, Cephalexin, and Cephradine Full Text available with Trip Pro

Comparison of In Vitro Antibacterial Activity of Three Oral Cephalosporins: Cefaclor, Cephalexin, and Cephradine Cefaclor, a new oral cephalosporin, was compared in vitro with cephalexin and cephradine against 233 organisms. Evaluations were performed in Mueller-Hinton and nutrient broth and agar using two inoculum sizes. In agar, cefaclor had greater antibacterial activity than either cephalexin or cephradine against isolates of Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis, Staphylococcus aureus (...) . pneumoniae, E. coli, and S. typhi. Cefaclor was the most active, cephalexin had intermediate activity, and cephradine was the least active. From the data obtained in this in vitro study, it can be concluded that cefaclor, which has a substituted chloro group attached to the molecule, had increased antibacterial activity over cephalexin and cephradine. Comparative clinical trials with cefaclor will determine whether the differences outlined above are of clinical significance.

13. Double-blind comparison of carbenicillin indanyl sodium, ampicillin, and cephalexin in treatment of urinary tract infection. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Double-blind comparison of carbenicillin indanyl sodium, ampicillin, and cephalexin in treatment of urinary tract infection. Carbenicillin indanyl sodium, ampicillin, or cephalexin was administered orally to 61 patients with urinary tract infections. Assignment of drug was made by a computer-generated, randomized plan in a double-blind fashion. The rates of cure 4 weeks after therapy were 50, 42, and 50% for patients treated with carbenicillin, ampicillin, and cephalexin, respectively. Failure (...) of therapy was correlated with chronicity of infection and sensitivity of the microorganism to the antibiotic used. Thirty-nine percent of the patients developed side effects, but there were no significant differences in side effects among the three antibiotics. This double-blind study demonstrates that carbenicillin indanyl sodium is as effective as ampicillin and cephalexin in treatment of urinary tract infections.

16. Clinical comparison of cefadroxil, new oral cephalosporin, and cephalexin in uncomplicated urinary tract infection. (Abstract)

Clinical comparison of cefadroxil, new oral cephalosporin, and cephalexin in uncomplicated urinary tract infection. Efficacy and safety of cefadroxil, a new oral cephalosporin, were compared with that of cephalexin in the treatment of 28 women with acute urinary tract infections. According to a randomized double-blind design, each patient received cefadroxil 1,000 mg. twice daily or cephalexin 500 mg. four times a day for ten days. Cures based on urine culture five to nine days post-treatment (...) were obtained for all but 1 patient receiving cefadroxil; reinfection after eradication of the original pathogen was recorded for only 1 patient in each treatment group. No drug-related side effects or significant clinical laboratory abnormalities were observed during the study. Cefadroxil 1,000 mg. given twice daily was as effective and as well tolerated as cephalexin 500 mg. given four times daily. The significance of this dosage schedule advantage is discussed.
