Meropenem (Merrem) is another carbapenem antibiotic with a broad spectrum of activity comparable to that of imipenem. A methyl group attached at the one-position on the five-member ring confers stability to de-hydropeptidase I. Consequently, meropenem does not require administration with cilastatin. When compared in human trials, imipenem-cilastatin and meropenem achieve similar clinical outcomes in patients with serious intraabdominal and soft tissue infections. Both imipenem-cilastatin and meropenem are used to treat infections caused by highly resistant Klebsiella pneumo-niae producing ESBLs.The major clinically relevant distinction between imipenem-cilastatin and meropenem is the lower likelihood of seizures associated with meropenem.
