A series of C(2)-substituted [methyl, carboxy and carboxymethyl] cephems have been prepared. Test data show a significant reduction in antiblotic activity. Penicillin binding protein (PBP) studies show a decreased affinity to essential PBP-3 in S. aureus X1.1 and E. coli K12. The effect is believed to be steric in nature.
