The clinical usefulness of Cefoperazone for the treatment of post-operative infections or prophylaxis was studied in patients with head and neck tumors. In some cases in which local application of an antibiotic was considered to be useful, Polymyxin B Sulfate was used concomitantly. Cefoperazone administration was clinically useful in 17 of the 18 patients enrolled in this study (very useful in 10, useful in 7) and only one patient failed to respond to Cefoperazone therapy. Adverse reactions or laboratory abnormalities possibly related to the therapy were seen in three patients. However, in one case, the adverse reaction could be attributed to the concomitantly administered anticancer agent, and in the other two cases, reactions were mild and transient.
