Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • A multi-centered trial testing the effectiveness of a new antibiotic named meropenem in treating patients with a pulmonary exacerbation.

    Research

  • The objective is to evaluate the efficacy, safety, tolerance, and pharmacokinetics of intravenous meropenem in patients with cystic fibrosis experiencing an acute pulmonary exacerbation.

    Research

  • Evaluation of the efficacy, safety, tolerance, and pharmacokinetics of meropenem for the treatment of acute pulmonary exacerbations in patients with cystic fibrosis.

    Research

  • The purpose of this study is to determine the best dose and the safety of meropenem for the treatment of abdominal infections in infants more than 3 months of age.

    Clinical Trials

  • The carbapenems, available since the 1970s, which include imipenem and meropenem among others.

    SUPERBUG

  • Strains showing combined resistance to ceftazidime (MIC, 16 µg/ml), imipenem (MIC, 16 µg/ml), and meropenem (MIC, 16 µg/ml) were routinely screened for MβL genes by standards PCRs (2, 9, 11).

    Behe's Test, Take 2

  • Hall: Yano et al. (12) recently reported that IMP-6, which differs from IMP-1 by a single amino acid substitution, increases the MIC of meropenem 128-fold but does not increase the resistance to imipenem.

    Behe's Test, Take 2

  • TP: Strains showing combined resistance to ceftazidime (MIC, 16 µg/ml), imipenem (MIC, 16 µg/ml), and meropenem (MIC, 16 µg/ml) were routinely screened for MβL genes by standards PCRs (2, 9, 11).

    Behe's Test, Take 2

  • So the mechanismen is already documented for meropenem.

    Behe's Test, Take 2

  • We launched meropenem in most major countries during the first half of the year and have become the largest generic provider of the drug, maintaining a significant market share position across the region.
