How effective are Cefotax injections 1 g from Japan for bacterial infections (cefotaxime, cephem antibiotic)?

Studies showed that unlike other beta-lactams, such as penicillin and amoxicillin, cefotaxime is resistible to beta-lactamase degradation, which broadens its the spectrum of activity (T. T. Van, H. N. Nguyen et al. "The antibiotic resistance characteristics of non-typhoidal Salmonella enterica isolated from food-producing animals, retail meat and humans in South East Asia". International Journal of Food Microbiology, 2012, 154 (3): 98–106).
