Transcript of ’-Lactam Antibiotics 1. PENICILLINS 2.Cephalosporins 3.Carbapenems ( Imipenems ) 4....

  • Slide 1
  • -Lactam Antibiotics 1. PENICILLINS 2.Cephalosporins 3.Carbapenems ( Imipenems ) 4. Monobactams ( Aztreonam)
  • Slide 2
  • Penicillins Classification Narrow spectrum penicillins Antistaphylococcal penicillins Broad spectrum penicillins Extended spectrum penicillins ( antipseudomonal penicillins).
  • Slide 3
  • Mechanism of action Like all -lactam antibiotics, inhibit the synthesis of bacterial cell wall. Through inhibition transpeptidase enzyme They are bactericidal on the actively growing bacteria.
  • Slide 4
  • Pharmacokinetics Absorption Depending on acid stability Absorption of most oral penicillins is impaired by food except amoxicillin.
  • Slide 5
  • Metabolism & Excretion Not metabolised Excreted unchanged in urine Probenecid blocks their secretion Nafcillin is mainly cleared by biliary route Oxacillin by both kidney & biliary route.
  • Slide 6
  • Distribution Relatively insoluble in lipid Poor penetration into cells and BBB Inflammation permits entrance into CSF. Proteins binding vary from 20%-90%
  • Slide 7
  • Narrow spectrum penicillins Penicillin G Short duration Acid unstable Penicillinase sensitive Used in enterococcal endocarditis usually with aminoglycosides To prevent gonorrheal opthalmia in new born.
  • Slide 8
  • Procaine penicillin Long acting (every 12 h ). Acid unstable Penicillinase sensitive Used to prevent subacute bacterial endocarditis due to dental extraction or tonsillectomy in patients with congenital or acquired valve disease.
  • Slide 9
  • Benzathine penicillin Long acting (every 3-4 weeks ) Acid unstable Penicillinase sensitive Treatment of -hemolytic streptococcal pharyngitis. Used as prophylaxis against reinfection with - hemolytic streptococci so prevent rheumatic fever. Once a week for 1-3 weeks for treatment of syphilis (2.4 milloion units I.M.)
  • Slide 10
  • Phenoxymethyl penicillin (P. V) Less effective than penicillin G Acid stable Penicillinase sensitive Short acting Used in minor infections
  • Slide 11
  • Penicillinase resistant to staphylococcal -lactamase producer Methicillin acid unstable Nafcillin its absorption is erratic Oxacillin, Cloxacillin,Dicloxacillin (acid stable ). Used in minor & severe Stap. infections
  • Slide 12
  • Broad &Extended spectrum penicillins Aminopenicillins Carboxypenicillins Ureidopenicillins
  • Slide 13
  • Aminopenicillins(Ampicillin &Amoxicillin) Therapeutic uses 1)H.influenza 2)E.coli 3)Salmonella&Shigella infections only ampicillin 4)Prophylaxis of infective endocarditis 5) Urinary tract infections 6) Effective against penicillin resistant pneumococci
  • Slide 14
  • Carboxypenicillins(Ticarcillin)&Ur eidopenicillin(Piperacillin) Effective against pseudomonas aeruginosa & Enterobacter. Penicillinase sensitive Can be given in combination with - lactamase inhibitors as clavulanic acid,sulbactam, tazobactam.
  • Slide 15
  • Adverse effects Hypersensitivity reactions High dose in renal failure ---seizure Naficillin (neutropenia) Oxacillin (hepatitis) Methicillin(nephritis) B.S.P.(pseudomembraneous colitis ) Secondary infections
  • Slide 16
  • Problems relating to use & misuse of penicillins 1- 90% of staphylococcal strains both in hospital or community are -lactamase producers 2- New generations of microorganisms as H.influenzae, N.gonorrhoeae or pneumococci are resistant to penicillins 3- Broad spectrum penicillins eradicate normal flora causing superinfections
  • Slide 17
  • Cephalosporins First-Generation Cefazolin, Cephalexin, cephradin. They are very effective against gram- positive cocci They are given orally,except cefazolin given I.V.I,or I.M.
  • Slide 18
  • Excretion Mainly through kidney Probenecid block tubular secretion and increase plasma level. They can not cross B.B.B.
  • Slide 19
  • Clinical uses Urinary tract infections Minor Staph.infections or minor polymicrobial infections as cellulitis or soft tissue abscess. Cefazolin is the drug of choice for surgical prophylaxis,also as alternative to antistaph.penicillin in allergic patients.
  • Slide 20
  • Second -Generations Cefaclor,Cefamandole, Cefonicid Less active against gram-positive bacteria than first generation They have extended gram negative effect No effect on P-aeruginosa or E-cocci.
  • Slide 21
  • Pharmacokinetics Given orally or parenterally Can not cross B.B.B. Excreted through kidney Cefonicid is highly protein binding
  • Slide 22
  • Clinical uses H-influenza infections Mixed anaerobic infections as peritonitis. Community acquired pneumonia
  • Slide 23
  • Third -Generations Cefoperazone,Cefixime,Ceftriaxone They have extended gram- negative spectrum. Have an effect on P-aeruginosa. No effect on E-coli.
  • Slide 24
  • Pharmacokinetics Main route I.V.I. Cefixime can be given orally Ceftriaxone has a long half- life (7-8h).can be given once every 24h. Cross B.B.B. Excreted through kidney.Ceftriaxone through bile.
  • Slide 25
  • Clinical uses Serious infections Cefixime,first line in treatment of gonorrhea. Meningitis P-aeruginosa infections.
  • Slide 26
  • Fourth -Generations Cefepime More resistant to hydrolysis by - lactamase Active against P-aeruginosa & E-coli Clinical use as third generations.
  • Slide 27
  • Adverse Effects Allergy Thrombophilibitis Interstitial nephritis and tubular necrosis mainly with cephaloridine. Cephalosporins that contain a methylthiotetrazole group as cefamandole,cefperazone cause hypoprothrombinemia
  • Slide 28
  • And bleeding disorders. Vit.K twice weekly can prevent this. Methylthiotetrazole ring causes severe disulfiram-like reaction. Superinfections. Diarrhea.
  • Slide 29
  • Carbapenems Imipenem Bctericidal, inhibit bacterial cell wall synthesis. Has a wide spectrum of activity Sensetive to metallo- lactamase.
  • Slide 30
  • Pharmacokinetics Not absorbed orally,taken by I.V.I. Inactivated by dehydropeptidases in renal tubules, so it is given with an inhibitor of renal dehydropeptidases,cilastatin for clinical use. Penetrates body tissues and fluids including c.s.f.
  • Slide 31
  • Clinical uses Mixed aerobic and anaerobic infections Carbapenem is the lactam of choice for treatment of enterobacter infections. Pseudomonal infections Intraabdominal infections Febrile neutropenic patient Septicaemia.
  • Slide 32
  • Meropenem Similar to imipenem but it is highly active against gram-negative aerobes. Not degraded by renal dehydropeptidase
  • Slide 33
  • Adverse effects Nausea,vomiting,diarrhea Skin rash and reaction at the site of infusion High dose with imipenem in renal failure cause seizure Patients allergic to penicillin may be allergic to carbapenems.
  • Slide 34
  • Monobactams Aztronam Active only against gram-negative aerobic bacteria. Given I.V. Similar to -lactam in mechanism of action and adverse effects.
  • Slide 35
  • Macrolides(MACROCYCLIC LACTONE RING 14-16 ATOMS) Erythromycin(14 atom lactone ring ) Is effective against Legionella,cornybacteria,gram-positive cocci,chlamydia,helicobacter Less effective on gram-negative organisms.
  • Slide 36
  • Mechanism of action Inhibit protein synthesis via binding to 50 S ribosomal RNA subunit. Bactericidal at high conc.and bacteriostatic at low conc.
  • Slide 37
  • Pharmacokinetics Destroyed by stomach acid and must be administered with enteric coating. Food interferes with absorption Half-life 1.5h Excreted mainly through bile,5%only in urine. Cross placenta not B.B.B.
  • Slide 38
  • Clinical uses Drug of choice of corynebacterial infections Chlamydial infections Community acquired pneumonia Mycoplasma Legionella Penicillin allergic patients.
  • Slide 39
  • Adverse effects Anorexia,nausea,vomiting,diarrhea. Liver toxicity especially with the estolate coat produce acute cholestatic hepatitis Drug interactions as it is cytochrome p450 inhibitor. Hypersensitivity reactions.
  • Slide 40
  • Clarithromycin(14 atom lactone ring) Acid stable Mechanism of action as erythromycin Spectrum as erythromycin but more active against Mycobacterium avium complex.m.leprae.Toxoplasma gondii. Half life 6h. Metabolised in liver (active metabolites ).
  • Slide 41
  • Partially excreted in urine Drug interactions similar to erythromycin Has a lower frequency of gastric upset And less frequent dosing More tolerable More expensive
  • Slide 42
  • Azithromycin(15 lactone ring ) Same mechanism of action Similar spectrum as clarithromycin,but more active on H-influenza &chlamydia. Half-life 3 days. Rapidaly absorbed and well tolerated. Free of drug interactions Excreated in bile and urine
  • Slide 43
  • Clinical uses Upper and lower respiratory tract infections Skin infections Alternative to penicillin in allergic patients Urethritis or cervicitis mainly by chlamydial infections.
  • Slide 44
  • Adverse effe
