About Cefepime-Taniborbactam

Taniborbactam, formerly known as VNRX-5133, is the only known beta-lactamase inhibitor in advanced clinical development that inhibits both serine- and metallo-beta-lactamases. When combined with cefepime, a fourth generation cephalosporin antibiotic, taniborbactam drives antimicrobial activity against gram-negative bacteria including carbapenemase-producing-Enterobacterales and Pseudomonas aeruginosa including multi-drug resistance strains. This includes pathogens that produce extended-spectrum beta-lactamases, AmpC beta-lactamases, AmpC, KPC, OXA, NDM, and VIM.

Sponsored by Venatorx, cefepime-taniborbactam has the potential to offer broad-spectrum antibacterial activity that is favorable over currently available therapies, especially in high-risk patients where a delay in effective treatment may lead to suboptimal clinical outcomes. Venatorx is currently enrolling a Phase 3 clinical trial (ClinicalTrials.gov – NCT03840148) of cefepime-taniborbactam in patients with complicated urinary tract infections (cUTIs).

This project has been funded in whole or in part with federal funds from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. HHSN272201300019C, The Wellcome Trust under Award No. 360G-Wellcome-101999/Z/13/Z, and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, Department of Health and Human Services under Contract No. HHSO100201900007C.
