What is Kimyrsa?

Kimyrsa is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Melinta Therapeutics, LLC. FDA approval of Kimyrsa was based on data from the phase 3 SOLO I clinical trials which compared a single dose of oritavancin 1200mg intravenously to vancomycin (1g or 15mg/kg twice daily intravenously for 7 to 10 days). Findings showed that oritavancin was as effective as vancomycin for primary and secondary endpoints. Approval was also based on data from an open-label pharmacokinetic study that compared Kimyrsa to Orbactiv given over 3 hours for the treatment of adults with ABSSSI.

KIMYRSA is a lipoglycopeptide antibiotic indicated for the treatment of adult patients with acute bacterial skin infections and skin structure infections (ABSSSI) caused by susceptible isolates of designated Gram-positive microorganisms. (Staphylococcus aureus (including methicillin-susceptible [MSSA] and methicillin-resistant [MRSA] isolates), Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus dysgalactiae, Streptococcus anginosus and Enterococcus faecalis (vancomycin-susceptible isolates only).

What doses of Kimyrsa are available?

Kimyrsa is available in injection form, in the following doses: 1,200 mg of lyophilized powder in a single-dose vial for reconstitution.

The two oritavancin products (Kimyrsa and Orbactiv) have differences in dose, strength, duration of infusion, and preparation, including reconstitution and dilution instructions and compatible diluents.m Administer 1,200 mg of Kimyrsa as a single dose by intravenous infusion over 1 hour.
