Pharmacokinetics and Safety of Intravenous Ceftolozane/Tazobactam in Healthy Adult Subjects Following Single and Multiple Ascending Doses

The pharmacokinetics and safety of ceftolozane, a novel cephalosporin, and tazobactam, a β-lactamase inhibitor, alone and in combination as a 2:1 ratio in single doses of up to 2,000 and 1,000 mg of ceftolozane and tazobactam, respectively, and multiple doses of up to 3,000 and 1,500 mg of ceftolozane and tazobactam, respectively, per day were evaluated in healthy adult subjects. In part 1, groups of six subjects each received single ascending doses of ceftolozane, tazobactam, and ceftolozane-tazobactam in a within-cohort crossover design.
