Abstract

Concentrations of cyclacillin in serum over a 6-h period were similar in fasted and milk-fed infants who received 25-mg/kg dose of cyclacillin suspension. Measured by the concentration in serum after oral administration of 15-mg/kg doses, cyclacillin was absorbed more rapidly, reached larger concentration, and was cleared more promptly than was amoxicillin.
