Cefotaxime

Hazard - P - B 0 T - Risk Cannot be excluded

Information

Underlying information for P, B, T and risk are from Fass.

Fass environmental information

Fass environmental information for Cefotaxim Villerton (downloaded 2018-10-31).

Hazard

Persistence: No data.

Bioaccumulation: "Log P= -1.4 at neutral pH (predicted by ChemAxon)."

Toxicity: No data.

Risk

Risk of environmental impact of cefotaxime cannot be excluded, since no ecotoxicity data is available.

Article Predicted critical environmental concentrations for 500 pharmaceuticals

Critical effect concentration (CEC) for cefotaxime is 1 300 000 ng/L. Log P is set to 0.6.

Antibiotic resistance

Studies have shown that even low concentrations of antibiotics in the environment can contribute to antibiotic resistance and therefore as little as possible should end up in our environment.

For antibiotics in general, it is recommended that these drugs are used as restrictively as possible without risking the patient's health.
