The challenges we are facing in antibacterial drug
development are largely scientific, and the path forward must be supported by sound science.
The likely increased use of oral antibacterial drugs
for patients with possible influenza and for prophylaxis and treatment of secondary bacterial pneumonia would enhance the existing evolutionary pressure toward resistance.
Cefepime is a cephalosporin antibacterial drug
used to treat pneumonia, urinary tract, skin, and intra-abdominal infections.
Visiongain's analysis indicates that, in 2011, the top 20 antibacterial drug
manufacturers accounted for 37.
In addition, the investigators found it "encouraging" that the use of antibacterial drugs
suspected of being teratogenic--such as aminoglycosides, chloramphenicol, and tetracyclines--was "extremely low to none at all" among women just before conception and in early pregnancy (Arch.
In addition, the increased prevalence of infections that are resistant to antibacterial drugs
threatens medicines already on the market by limiting their effectiveness.
This resistance results from contaminated food, antibacterial drug
exposure, and cross-contamination from humans or animals.
Senior Research Leader, will be presenting at the Fifth Annual "Resistance is Futile: the Challenge of Antibacterial Drug
Development" Conference hosted by Drug Discovery Chemistry in San Diego on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 at 4:30 p.
ZINPLAVA is indicated to reduce recurrence of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in patients 18 years of age or older who are receiving antibacterial drug
treatment of CDI and are at high risk for CDI recurrence.
The antibacterial drug
linezolid and methylene blue can interact with serotoninergic psychiatric drugs, resulting in serious central nervous system reactions, the Food and Drug Administration announced in two separate but similarly worded safety advisories.

Bacterial adaptation makes antibacterial drug
and AHP's Wyeth-Ayerst Laboratories research unit are keying in on three antibacterial drug
targets from Millennium for drug candidate screening.
a clinical-stage life science company developing a portfolio of potent new antibiotics designed to be effective against dangerous, drug-resistant bacteria, including multidrug-resistant (MDR) gram-negative pathogens, today announced that the Company will present at the Cambridge Health Institute's (CHI) 5th Annual Antibacterial Drug
Development Conference "Resistance is Futile: The Challenge of Antibacterial Drug
The agency looks forward to continuing to work with scientific experts to address the challenges of new antibacterial drug
