Meropenem is an antibiotic of the carbapenem group.

It has the broadest antibacterial spectrum of beta-lactams - active against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, and anaerobes.

One of the antibiotics of last resort for many bacterial infections, and mainstay of therapy in patients with serious hospital-acquired infection, it is said to be resistant to extended-spectrum beta lactamases, but may be susceptible to metallo-beta-lactamases.
