Abstract

Doripenem (DRPM) which is injectable carbapenem antimicrobial agent is a compound with high antimicrobial activity against severe acute pancreatitis in carbapenem agents. It does not have a report of the distribution in human pancreatic tissue until now. This time, we performed examination about the distribution in pancreatic tissue of DRPM. Blood and pancreatic tissues were collected from six patients who were administered DRPM intravenously at a dose of 0.5 g after 1 hour from the start of injection. The concentration of DRPM in the serum and pancreatic tissues were measured. The concentrations of DRPM in the pancreatic tissues and serum were 0.58-5.39μ/g and 0.02-0.24μg/mL, respectively. DRPM distributed in pancreatic tissues sufficiently, and we could expect that DRPM was useful agent of pancreas infection in acute pancreatitis.
