Two g cefodizime i.v. administration at 00:00, 06:00, 12:00 and 18:00 respectively, to 8 male and 8 female, young healthy volunteers, has shown: 1. a sex-related difference in both plasma (AUC) and total cumulative excretion of the agent with larger values in females than in males; 2. a dosing time-related difference in plasma (AUC) with the largest values for Rx at 00:00 and lowest for Rx at 18:00 in both males and females; 3. a dosing time-related difference in urinary concentration of cefodizime with largest values for Rx at 06:00 and lowest for Rx at 12:00. These urinary changes were highly correlated with changes in AUC for each dosing time; 4. no dosing time-related changes were observed for plasma T1/2 as well as cumulative urinary excretion of cefodizime; 5. curve patterns of plasma cortisol had similar aspects for both control and Rx at 00:00 with no sex-related differences. Curve patterns differed from control for other dosing times (p less than 0.005 to p less than 0.001 with ANOVA tests).
