Pediatriske pasienterAntimicrobial resistance is a growing threat, with treatment options urgently needed for patients at risk
of MDR Gram-negative infections1,2

Identifying patients at risk of MDR Gram-negative infections is vital for appropriate selection of adequate, early antimicrobial therapy to reduce the risk of fatal outcomes.2

ZAVICEFTA: Paediatric patient profiles

cUTI patient

Tab Number 3

Tab Number 4

Tab Number 5

cUTI patient profile*

Identifying patients with cUTI at high risk of MDR Gram-negative infections.

Paediatric patient profile - cUTI

Emily 1-year-old girl

Medical history

  • Spina bifida
  • Neurogenic bladder
  • Recurrent UTIs
  • Requires intermittent use of catheter
  • Previous ESBL in urine
Clinical presentationEmily, for a second time, has been admitted to the hospital through a paediatric urology clinic due to clinical deterioration. Observations
Raised temperature
Raised inflammatory markers


Suspected cUTI

Suspected pathogens

K. pneumoniae, including those resistant to carbapenems (KPC)

Treatment considerations

Infections due to MDR Gram-negative pathogens, including ESBL-producing bacteria, are increasing in children and have been associated with higher mortality3,8,9

Risk factors that contribute to a higher mortality rate include3,10

Why ZAVICEFTA is an appropriate choice for your cUTI paediatric patients

cIAI patient profile*

Identifying paediatric patients with cIAI at high-risk of MDR Gram-negative infections.

Paediatric patient profile - cIAI

5-year-old boy

Medical history

  • Global developmental delay
  • Gut dysfunction
  • Total parenteral nutrition fed
  • Under the care of a paediatric gastrointestinal team
  • Various previous surgical procedures
  • 3 months ago: CPE rectal screen positive for Klebsiella oxytoca (KPC)
Clinical presentation
  • Matthew was admitted to hospital for a bowel resection 
  • 3 days post-operation, Matthew experienced clinical deterioration
Raised temperature
Raised inflammatory markers
Diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting
Severe breathlessness


Suspected cIAI

Suspected pathogens

MDR Gram-negative pathogens, including K. pneumoniae, possibly carbapenem- and colistin-resistant

Treatment considerations

  • CPE, including KPC-producing strains, are the culprits for the rapid global spread of CRE8 and are associated with higher mortality8,9
  • Severe sepsis and septic shock due to these infections represent a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in these paediatric patients11

Risk factors that contribute to a higher mortality rate include3,10

Why ZAVICEFTA is an appropriate choice for your cUTI paediatric patients

Safe and effective treatment options are urgently needed to address the
growing threat of MDR Gram-negative infections in paediatric patients.15-17

The example described here is not an actual patient, but rather a fictitious representation of a scenario for which ZAVICEFTA (ceftazidime–avibactam) could be considered.Avibactam does not inhibit class B enzymes (metallo-β-lactamases) and does not inhibit many class D enzymes.11To be used in combination with an antibacterial agent active against Gram-positive pathogens when these are known or suspected to be contributing to the infectious process.11The total treatment duration shown may include IV ZAVICEFTA followed by appropriate oral therapy.11Consideration should be given to official guidance on the appropriate use of antibacterial agents.11To be used in combination with metronidazole when anaerobic pathogens are known or suspected to be contributing to the infectious process.1
