Cephalosporins

The cephalosporins are a class of β-lactam antibiotics originally derived from the fungus Acremonium, which was previously known as “Cephalosporium“.Together with cephamycins, they constitute a subgroup of β-lactam antibiotics called cephems. Cephalosporins were discovered in 1945

Cephalosporins are sometimes grouped into “generations” by their antimicrobial properties. The first cephalosporins were designated first-generation cephalosporins, whereas, later, more extended-spectrum cephalosporins were classified as second-generation cephalosporins. Each newer generation has significantly greater Gram-negative antimicrobial properties than the preceding generation
