Cefiderocol Is a siderophore cephalosporin antibiotic that is transported across the bacterial cell wall by the cells iron transporter. It has a spectrum of activity consistent with that of many broad spectrum cephalosporins where bacterial resistance has evolved to prevent their transport into the cell. Accordingly use is likely to be initially with resistant enterococci and ‘’Pseudomonas aeruginosa’’
