The synthesis, antibacterial activity and oral absorption in rats of new 7 beta-[(Z)-2-(2-aminothiazol-4-yl)-2-(carboxymethoxyimino)ace tamido] cephalosporins (1) having various substituted-alkylthio groups at the C-3 position of the cephem nucleus are described. Of these, the cephalosporins with a cyanomethylthio group (1d) and fluoroethylthio group (1p) at the C-3 position showed a potent in vitro antibacterial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria as well as good oral absorption in rats. When administered orally to mice infected with Klebsiella pneumoniae, 1d had stronger protective effect than 1p. The structure-activity relationships of 1 are also presented.
