MultiVu Video Feed: FDA Approves DORIBAX(TM) (doripenem for injection) for the Treatment of Complicated Intra-abdominal and Complicated Urinary Tract Infections
Date:10/15/2007

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved DORIBAX(TM) (doripenem for injection) as a new treatment for complicated intra-abdominal and complicated urinary tract infections, including pyelonephritis. DORIBAX has demonstrated activity against a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria - including Pseudomonas -- that cause these serious infections.

According to the CDC, in the U.S., nearly 2 million people acquire bacterial infections in hospitals each year, 90,000 will die as a result. 70% of those infections are caused by pathogens resistant to at least one drug. In 1998, the total annual cost of antimicrobial resistance to U.S. society was at least $5 billion USD. Gram-negative infections quickly are becoming a top concern of doctors in the hospital setting.
