Beta-lactamase hydrolysis and inhibition studies of the new 1-carbacephem LY163892

A novel 1-carbacephem, LY163892, was determined to be more stable to plasmid-mediated beta-lactamases than cefaclor. Chromosomal-mediated Type Ia and IVc enzymes destroyed LY163892 at rates ranging from 16 to 93% that of nitrocefin. LY163892 showed minimal ability to inhibit beta-lactamases other than Type Ia (P99).
