This fourth generation cephalosporin antibiotic (trade name Maxipime) is used for moderate-severe hospital acquired infections by multi-resistant bacteria such as pseudomonas and can cover resistant strep pneumonia as well as enterobacteriaceae.
4th generation cephalosporins are better than other cephalosporins because they have increased activity against pseudomonas and gram positives such as staphylococcus aureus. Along with this, they still maintain their gram-negative coverage.
