Carbenicillin (Pyopen)


Carbenicillin (Pyopen) is an antibiotic used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria, often those associated with the urinary tract. It is a member of the penicillin β-lactam antibiotics. However, unlike most β-lactams, carbenicillin is mainly only effective for treatment of infections caused by Gram-negative bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa and common enteric species.
