Long-Acting Antibiotics Offering Once-Weekly Dosing Will See Favorable Uptake and Use as Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy (OPAT)
Date:7/10/2014

t patients or discharge them on outpatient therapy.
  • Preference for oral antibiotics over OPAT: Oral therapies offer the potential to substantially simplify antibiotic treatment compared with therapies that are administered intravenously. Not surprisingly, surveyed ID specialists reported being more likely to prescribe oral formulations of both Cubist's Sivextro (tedizolid) and Tetraphase's emerging drug eravacycline when discharging patients than OPAT with either drug, suggesting oral formulations of these agents will see greater use as discharge therapy.
  • Comments from Decision Resources Group Analyst Hannah E. Cummings, Ph.D.:

    • "Hospitals are actively looking to cut costs and reduce or shorten admissions, and discharging patients on OPAT is an important part of their strategy. OPAT is a particularly attractive treatment modality for patients presenting to the emergency room with an infection requiring IV antibiotic therapy but not necessitating admission. ID specialists and emergency room physicians are frequently involved in identifying and recommending patients for OPAT and will likely be key stakeholders in driving uptake of new OPAT therapies."
    • "Surveyed ID specialists identified a need for new OPAT drugs for infections due to drug-resistant pathogens that are dosed once daily. Although the OPAT market is highly genericized, agents demonstrating benefits in efficacy, dosing-frequency and/or administration, such as Cubist's Cubicin (daptomycin) and Merck's Invanz (ertapenem), have experienced widespread use in the OPAT market. New agents will also have to demonstrate improvements on these key attributes to successfully compete in the OPAT market segment."
