Levaquin is the Preferred Quinolone Among More Than Half of All General Medical-Surgical Hospitals in the United States
Date:12/2/2008

MALVERN, Pa., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Arlington Medical Resources (AMR), a provider of premier market intelligence for the pharmaceutical and diagnostic imaging industries, finds that Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals' Levaquin is the preferred quinolone antibiotic among more than half of all general medical-surgical hospitals in the United States. Quinolone antibiotics are used to treat lung, sinus, skin and urinary tract infections caused by numerous bacterial pathogens.

"Based on our October 2008 audit, intravenous Levaquin was stocked in more hospitals than both Bayer's intravenous Cipro and generic intravenous ciprofloxacin combined," stated Matthew W. Mahr, Pharm.D., M.B.A., analyst at AMR.

The newly released edition of the Quinolone Monthly Monitor (U.S.) also finds that over 70 percent of hospitals reported having a closed hospital formulary for antibiotics. Large hospitals were found to be most likely to have a closed formulary for antibiotics. These closed formularies create restrictions on what can be prescribed in the hospital making it more difficult for a prescriber to use that medication.

Why Pharmaceutical Companies Need this Information

The Quinolone Monthly Monitor (U.S.) enables pharmaceutical companies to monitor formulary, stocking and restriction status of selected quinolone antibiotics. This study also gives information about the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee's actions for quinolones, which drive formulary and restriction status for these products.

About The Quinolone Monthly Monitor (U.S.)

The Quinolone Monthly Monitor (U.S.) is the industry's most comprehensive market research study of the formulary status of quinolone antibiotics. This study has been conducted monthly since June 1992 by collecting data from 300 pharmacy directors from a group of demographically representative acute care hospitals within the country.
