Ertapenem (Synonyms: MK-0826)

Cat. No.: HY-A0294
Handling Instructions

Ertapenem (MK-0826) is a broad spectrum and long acting β-lactam antibiotic. Ertapenem has a broad-spectrum anti-anaerobic activity against a variety of anaerobes with a mode MIC of 0.12 μg/mL. Ertapenem can be used for the research of severe infections caused by bacteria in the skin, lungs, stomach, pelvis, and urinary tract.

For research use only. We do not sell to patients.

Description

Ertapenem (MK-0826) is a broad spectrum and long acting β-lactam antibiotic. Ertapenem has a broad-spectrum anti-anaerobic activity against a variety of anaerobes with a mode MIC of 0.12 μg/mL. Ertapenem can be used for the research of severe infections caused by bacteria in the skin, lungs, stomach, pelvis, and urinary tract[1][2].

In Vitro

Ertapenem (0-100 μg/mL approximately, 48 h) is active against 99.1% of all anaerobes with a mode MIC of 0.12 μg/mL and MIC90 of 1 μg/mL, and MIC’s ≥8 μg/mL for B.fragilis and B.vulgatus species, respectively[1].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

Cell Viability Assay[1]

Cell Line: B. fragilis (ATCC 25285), B. thetaiotaomicron (ATCC 29741), and Eubacterium lentum (ATCC 43055)
Concentration: 0-100 μg/mL approximately
Incubation Time: 48 h
Result: Inhibited 99.1% of all isolate with a mode MIC of 0.12 μg/mL and MIC90 of 1 μg/mL, and 98.8% of the isolates were susceptible among the B. fragilis group.
In Vivo

Ertapenem (Subcutaneous injection, 0-10 mg/kg, 0-120 h after infection, S. aureus thigh tissue infection model) shows > 3 log10 CFU reduction of organism at 10 mg/kg, and maintains the activity with 3.3 and 4.4 log10 CFU eliminated at 2 mg/kg[2].
Ertapenem (Subcutaneous injection, 4h after infection, systemic infection model) is active against all gram-positive organisms, and is also active against gram-negative organisms tested with ED50s of <0.25 mg/kg/dose[2].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

Animal Model: S. aureus thigh tissue infection model (DBA/2 mice)[2]
Dosage: 0.5,1, 2, 5, 10 mg/kg (given at 2, 6, 10, 24, 48, 72, 96, 120 h)
Administration: Subcutaneous injection (0.5 mL after infection)
Result: Displayed > 3 log10 CFU reduction of organism compared to non-antibiotic-treated controls at 10 mg/kg.
Maintained the activity with 3.3 and 4.4 log10 CFU eliminated at 2 mg/kg.
Animal Model: Systemic infection model (DBA/2 female mice, viral antibody-free CD-1 female mice)[2]
Dosage: 0-3 mg/kg approximately
Administration: Subcutaneous injection (0.5 mL, begin immediately and 4 h after infection)
Result: Showed activity against all gram-positive organisms, and also ram-negative organisms tested with ED50s of <0.25 mg/kg/dose.
Animal Model: CD-1 mice, rats[2]
Dosage: 10 mg/kg approximately
Administration: Intraperitoneal injection (pharmacokinetic assay)
Result: Exhibited an AUC0-∞ ranging from 1.8-21.82 μg•hr/mL in tissue in mice following a 10-mg/kg i.p. dose.
Exhibited slow clearance rate with a t1/2β of 3.2 h, Clp of 0.47 mL/min/kg, AUC0-8 of 284.15μg•hr/mL.
