We have carried out clinical studies on cefditoren pivoxil (CDTR-PI, ME1207) in granules. The results are summarized as follows. Treatment with CDTR-PI was made for 14 cases of pediatric bacterial infections: 4 cases of tonsillitis, 2 cases of pneumonia, 3 cases of scarlet fever, 3 cases of impetigo, 1 case of subcutaneous abscess and 1 case of urinary tract infection.
