The pharmacokinetics of cefotaxime and desacetylcefotaxime were evaluated in 11 female and 13 male subjects with end-stage renal disease. Subjects received single 1- or 2-g intravenous doses of cefotaxime sodium. Serum, urine, and dialysate concentrations of cefotaxime and desacetylcefotaxime were determined using high performance liquid chromatography. The results indicate that gender has no clinically significant influence on the disposition of cefotaxime or its active metabolite desacetylcefotaxime.
