We studied biapenem (BIPM), a new carbapenem antibiotic, in terms of postoperative penetration into peritoneal exudate. We measured daily concentration of BIPM in peritoneal exudate after radical gastrectomy for gastric cancer or gastric leiomyosarcoma for 3 days. BIPM was administered by intravenous drip infusion at a dose of 0.3 g twice a day. The average concentrations in peritoneal exudate in 3 patients were 0.68, 0.33 and 0.11 μg/ml on days 1, 2 and 3, respectively. No side effects and no abnormal laboratory findings were observed.
