What is Oritavancin?Oritavancin

Oritavancin (also known as LY333328, Orbactiv) is a novel semisynthetic glycopeptide antibiotic being developed for the treatment of serious Gram-positive bacterial infections. Originally discovered and developed by Eli Lilly, oritavancin was acquired by InterMune in 2001 and then by Targanta Therapeutics in late 2005.

In December 2008, the US Food and Drug Administration declined to approve it without additional studies, and an EU application was withdrawn. In 2009, the development rights were acquired by The Medicines Company, which has completed clinical trials and submitted a new drug application to the FDA in February 2014. On August 6, 2014, the FDA approved oritavancin for treatment of skin infections in the United States.

Its chemical structure is similar to vancomycin. It is a lipoglycopeptide.

Mechanism of action

The 4′-chlorobiphenylmethyl group disrupts the cell membrane of Gram-positive bacteria. It also acts by inhibition of transglycosylation and inhibition of transpeptidation.
