FDA Update on Ongoing Safety Review of Cefepime (Maxipime)
The FDA has finished its evaluation of a possible increased risk of death with cefepime (Maxipime). The safety review of cefepime was first announced in November 2007 and since then the FDA has reviewed data from published studies and additional data submitted by Bristol Meyers Squibb, the manufacturer of cefepime (Maxipime). The FDA has determined that the data do not indicate a higher rate of death in cefepime-treated patients. Cefepime, an antibiotic that is administered by infusion into the vein, remains an appropriate therapy for its approved indications which include the treatment of pneumonia, urinary tract infections, skin infections, and abdominal infections.
