FDA: Discontinued Strength for IV Antibiotic Used for Serious Pneumonia
Vibativ is indicated for the treatment of adults with complicated skin and skin structure infections due to susceptible gram (+) bacteria. It is also approved to treat hospital-acquired and ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia (HABP/HAVP) due to Staphylococcus aureus when alternative treatments are not suitable.
Vibativ in the 750mg per vial strength will continue to be available.
Telavancin, a lipoglycopeptide antibiotic, inhibits cell wall biosynthesis by binding to late-stage peptidoglycan precursors, including lipid II. Telvancin also binds to the bacterial membrane and disrupts membrane barrier function.
