Dalbavancin is an intravenous antibiotic product candidate under investigation for the treatment of patients with acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections, or abSSSI, caused by Gram-positive bacteria, such as S. aureus, including Methicillin-Resistant and multi-drug resistant strains, and certain streptococcal species. The product candidate is a semi-synthetic lipoglycopeptide designed and under investigation for once-weekly intravenous dosing which may facilitate the treatment of patients with abSSSI in both the in-patient and out-patient settings, potentially reducing the length of a patient’s hospital stay or avoiding hospital admission altogether, with an impact on the overall cost of care for these patients.
