Plasma Profile & Urinary Excretion of Mecillinam after Pivmecillinam
Pivmecillinam (F.L. 1039. Leo) is the pivaloyloxymethyl ester of mecillinam (F.L. 1060. Leo). Like the related pivampicillin, which is the pivaloyloxy methyl ester of ampicillin, pivmecillinam is biologically inactive Until in-vivo hydrolysis to its biologically active constituent mecillinam. These reactions are shown in Fig. 1.
