Abstract

There is a need for new oral agents active against extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) producers, as these increasingly cause community-onset infections. We therefore evaluated faropenem, a penem in Phase III development, against recently collected oxyimino-cephalosporin-resistant bacteria.
