  1. Image Upload
    If you swap a C for the S in the CPN pharmacophore, is it tolerated?
    Yes, called a carbacephem
  2. Image Upload
    What is the benefit to having this ring structure
    Essential for activity and enhanced B-lactamase resistance
  3. Image UploadHow does the 3-cephem ring compare to a PCN?
    Less strained
  4. Image Upload
     (True/False) This is a 7-aminocephalosporonic acid.
  5. Image Upload
    (True/False) This structure contains a beta-lactam and dihydrothiazine structure (i.e. 3-cephem).
  6. Image Upload
    (True/False) Substituting the -S with a -C produces a cephamycin
    False, produces a Carbacephem
  7. Image Upload
    is this structure essential for activity?
  8. Image Upload
    Which drugs are cephamycins?
    Cefoxiten and Cefotetan
  9. Image Upload
    What is the advantage of a cephamycin?
    Broader resistance to B-lactamases
  10. Image Upload
    Is the COOH essential for activity?
  11. Image Upload
    How does the COOH work to maintain activity of the CPN?
    Anchors the CPN to the cell wall and orients it to acylate the transpeptidase
  12. Image Upload
    Can the COOH of CPNs form water soluble salts?
  13. Image Upload For all marketed forms of CPNs, what form is the COOH in and why?
    Na+ salt, for IV administration
  14. Image Upload
    What characteristics of the CPN are affected by R1?
    Spectrum, B-lactamas ressitance, oral bioavailability
  15. Image Upload
    Is acid stability affected by R1?
  16. Image Upload
    Like with penicillins, does a lipophilic R group cause increased G+ activity?
  17. Image Upload
    What generation of CPNs would have a lipophilic ring at R or R’?
    1st and 2nd generation
  18. Image Upload
    What generation of CPNs would ou expect to see more polar rings at R or R’?
    3rd and 4th generation
  19. Image Upload
    What is this potential R group called?
    2-amino thiazole
  20. Image Upload
    Most 3rd and 4th generation CPNs have what group for R’?
  21. Image Upload
    What is this group?
  22. Image Upload
    These methoxyimine variations have what effect as an R’ group on a CPN?
    Add G- coverage due to polarity
  23. Image Upload
    Polar groups at R1 have what effect on oral absorption?
    Enhance oral absorption in acid stable compounds
  24. Image Upload
    Comparing an NH2 and a methoxyimine at R’, which one would be better at preventing intermolecular opening of the B-lactam ring (enhancing stability of the B-lactam)?
  25. Image Upload
    How do methoxyimine variations enhance B-lactamase resistance of a CPN?
    Steric hindrance
  26. Image Upload
    How can a Methoxyimine group be further modified to enhance B-lactamase resistance?
    Add a polar functional group to it (e.g. COOH)
