Orbactiv is a broad-spectrum antibiotic mainly targeting inpatient settings. The drug is a semisynthetic lipoglycopeptide that inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis by blocking peptidoglycan biosynthesis. Orbactiv mainly inhibits bacterial transglycosylase, which is the enzyme that forms the glycan backbone of the cell wall. Secondly, it inhibits transpeptidase, an enzyme that cross-links adjacent glycan strands to form the cell wall. Orbactiv has demonstrated in vitro bactericidal activity against a wide range of Gram-positive bacterial strains. It has demonstrated potency against vancomycin-intermediate Staphylococcus aureus (VISA) and vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA). Moreover, it is active against both the VanA and VanB phenotypes of vancomycin-resistant enterococcus (VRE). Orbactiv’s enhanced efficacy stems partially from its additional ability to directly disrupt the bacterial cell wall and increase its permeability.
