Hospital-acquired bacterial pneumonia (HABP) and ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia (VABP) are serious bacterial infections that occur in hospitalized patients, which are associated with critically ill and vulnerable populations.
A total of 870 hospitalized adult patients with HABP or VABP were randomized and received trial medications comparing AVYCAZ 2.5 g (ceftazidime 2 grams and avibactam 0.5 grams) intravenously every eight hours to meropenem 1 gram intravenously every eight hours, said the company.
This prospective, randomised, double-blind, multicenter, non-inferiority, Phase 3 study assessed the safety and efficacy of Zerbaxa compared with meropenem in 726 adult patients diagnosed with either ventilated HABP or VABP requiring intravenous antibiotic therapy.

About 870 hospitalised adult patients with HABP or VABP were randomised and received trial medications in a pivotal Phase 3, multinational, double-blind trial comparing AVYCAZ 2.5 g intravenously every eight hours to meropenem 1 gram intravenously, added the company.
The company said the clinical trial is designed to assess the intrapulmonary penetration and pharmacokinetics of ZOLYD to support future development for US patients with hospital-acquired bacterial pneumonia (HABP) and ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia (VABP) infections, with a combined mortality rate of up to 33%.
