What is Tedizolid Phosphate

Tedizolid Phosphate is an oxazolidinone-class antibiotic prodrug indicated in adults for the treatment of acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI) caused by susceptible isolates of several Gram-positive bacteria. Following administration via oral or intravenous route, tedizolid phosphate prodrug is converted by plasma phosphatases to its active moiety, tedizolid. Once activated, tedizolid exerts its bacteriostatic microbial activity through inhibition of protein synthesis by binding to the 50S ribosomal subunit of susceptible bacteria. Tedizolid is an effective and potent alternative to linezolid for the treatment of patients with Gram-positive ABSSSI due to MRSA or MSSA. Increased potency allows for once daily dosing with reduced total dosages, improving the side effect profile of this drug. Of note, the minimum inhibitory concentrations of tedizolid appear to be largely unaffected by the chloramphenicol-florfenicol resistance (cfr) gene, which has been implicated in a number of published linezolid-resistant organism outbreaks.

Tedizolid Phosphate mechanism of action

After conversion to its active form by phosphatases, tedizolid exerts its antibacterial activity through inhibition of protein synthesis by binding to the 50S ribosomal subunit of susceptible Gram-positive bacteria. Cross-resistance between other non-oxazolidinone antibacterial drugs is unlikely as it inhibits bacterial protein synthesis through a different mechanism.

Indication of Tedizolid Phosphate

Tedizolid Phosphate is an oxazolidinone antibacterial drug indicated in adults for the treatment of acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI) caused by susceptible isolates of the following Gram-positive microorganisms: Staphylococcus aureus (including methicillin-resistant[MRSA]and methicillin-susceptible[MSSA]isolates), Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus anginosus Group (including Streptococcus anginosus, Streptococcus intermedius, and Streptococcus constellatus), and Enterococcus faecalis.

Toxicity of Tedizolid Phosphate

The most commonly reported adverse effects were nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, and dizziness. Other reactions that occurred during clinical trials at a rate less than 2% include anemia, tachycardia, blurred vision, oral candidiasis, colitis, decreased white blood cell count, vulvovaginal mycotic infection, paresthesia, hypertension, and urticaria. There are no adequate studies to confirm that tedizolid phosphate is safe to use during pregnancy and should be avoided as it was shown to produce fetal developmental toxicities in mice, rats, and rabbits.
