Adverse Drug Reactions of Different Brands of Ceftazidime Injection

2014-07-24 14:27:50 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to understand whether generic ceftazidime causes different adverse drug reaction incidence from the brand drug.


Ceftazidime is a third generation cephalosporins that should be reserved for severe bacterial infections. Substitution of the brand ceftazidime with a generic ceftazidime raised some concerns.

The purpose of this study is to understand whether generic ceftazidime causes different adverse drug reaction incidence from the brand drug.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Semisynthetic, broad-spectrum antibacterial derived from CEPHALORIDINE and used especially for Pseudomonas and other gram-negative infections in debilitated patients.

Infection by a variety of fungi, usually through four possible mechanisms: superficial infection producing conjunctivitis, keratitis, or lacrimal obstruction; extension of infection from neighboring structures - skin, paranasal sinuses, nasopharynx; direct introduction during surgery or accidental penetrating trauma; or via the blood or lymphatic routes in patients with underlying mycoses.

A nontuberculous infection when occurring in humans. It is characterized by pulmonary disease, lymphadenitis in children, and systemic disease in AIDS patients. Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare infection of birds and swine results in tuberculosis.

Infection involving the tissues or organs in the PELVIS.

Infection in humans and animals caused by fungi in the class Zygomycetes. It includes MUCORMYCOSIS and entomophthoramycosis. The latter is a tropical infection of subcutaneous tissue or paranasal sinuses caused by fungi in the order Entomophthorales. Phycomycosis, closely related to zygomycosis, describes infection with members of Phycomycetes, an obsolete classification.
