Ceftriaxone Active Against UTI-Causing Bacteria


SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Researchers at the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) convention have released information showing urinary tract infection-causing bacteria are still susceptible to a broad-spectrum of antibiotics, including ceftriaxone sodium.

E. coli, a common cause of such infections, is susceptible to the antibiotic, in comparison to resistance shown against ampicillin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.

Researchers estimate there are 10 million doctor visits annually do to UTI treatment.
