The new IV drug approved to fight MRSA Dalvance: I cannot find pH or osmolality information. Does anyone have it?
I called the number on the website and they will email the answer. You can call too. 1-855-387-2825 or [email protected]
I have a feeling we are going to see a lot of this drug and we'll need to know what device is appropriate and how to infuse safely.
edit: oritavancin showed up in the news today, a "once and done" IV also for MRSA. It looks like approval is pending. Two new meds to watch and learn!
The company sent the pH and Osmo info to my email, not sure how to transfer that information here without a great deal of typing. Reconstituted pH is 4.0 - 4.5 with Osmo at 246. I have the full info if anyone wants to have it emailed to them.
