The activities of T-1982 (sodium 7.beta.-[(2R,3S)-2-(4-ethyl-2,3-dioxo-1-piperazine-carboxamido)-3-hydroxybutanamidol]-7.alpha.-methoxy-3-[(1-methyl-1H-tetrazol-5-yl)thiomethyl]-3-cephem-4-carboxylate) against various gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria were compared with those of cefmetazole, cefoxitin, cefazolin, and cefoperazone. T-1982 was active against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, including genera resistant to the other cephalosporins. T-1982 exhibited greater activity than did cefmetazole, cefoxitin, cefazolin or cefoperazone against Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis and Serratia marcescens and was also highly active against Bacteroides fragilis. T-1982 was as stable to various .beta.-lactamases as were cefmetazole and cefoxitin. The therapeutic activities of T-1982 in mice experimentally infected with various gram-negative bacteria were superior to those of cefmetazole, cefoxitin, cefazolin and cefoperazone.
