• The concentration of cefoxitin was determined in fluid obtained from human surgical wounds during the first post-operative day. Intravenous administration of cefoxitin sodium at a dosage of 1 or 2 g every six hours rapidly produced wound-fluid concentrations greater than the minimal inhibitory concentration for most susceptible organisms. After three hours, wound-fluid concentrations surpassed the serum concentrations of cefoxitin. The higher dosage resulted in higher wound-fluid levels.
