Activity Against Key Drug-Resistant Pathogens is the Most Important Attribute Influencing Surveyed Physicians' Antibiotic Selection for Nosocomial Pneumonia in the U.S.
Date:11/2/2010

MALVERN, Pa., Nov. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Arlington Medical Resources (AMR), a provider of premier market intelligence for the pharmaceutical and diagnostic imaging industries, finds that the leading driver of antibiotic selection in nosocomial pneumonia in the United States is activity against key drug-resistant pathogens. Such pathogens include P. aeruginosa, MRSA, Vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and multidrug-resistant Steptococcus pneumonia.

"Nosocomial pneumonia is one of the most important indications for hospital antibiotics in the U.S. because of its relatively high morbidity and mortality and high frequency of drug-resistant pathogens," stated James Andersen, analyst at AMR.

In the new report entitled Hospital Anti-Infectives Insight Series: Nosocomial Pneumonia, surveyed physicians indicate that the excellent bactericidal activity and lung penetration of Pfizer's Zosyn are primary reasons for its success in the nosocomial pneumonia drug market, while Pfizer's success with Zyvox is largely driven by its convenient availability in a dual IV/oral formulation. Johnson & Johnson's success with Levaquin is driven by a high level of experience among surveyed physicians, relatively high activity against nosocomial pneumonia pathogens, low dosing frequency and dual IV/oral formulation.

About the Report

AMR's Hospital Anti-Infectives Insight Series: Nosocomial Pneumonia analyzes hospital antibiotic prescribing patterns using AMR's comprehensive and highly detailed clinical data in conjunction with primary research and extensive understanding of emerging therapies and forecasts. This report contains U.S. data and examines the reasons behind physicians' product preferences, factors driving hospital antibiotic prescribing patterns and receptivity to emerging antibiotics.
