Penetration of cefpirome and moxifloaxacin into abscess fluid of humans will be tested. Patients with an abscess scheduled for drainage will receive study drugs (single or multiple dose), pus samples and plasma samples will be collected and analyzed by High pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC). Pharmacokinetics of the study drugs in pus and plasma will be determined using a pharmacokinetic model.
