Daptomycin (Cubicin) is a new IV antibiotic
Daptomycin (Cubicin) is a new IV antibiotic in Canada.
It's the first in a new class...called cyclic lipopeptides.
It works by disrupting the flow of ions across the bacterial cell membrane. It's for complicated skin infections due to gram-positive bacteria...including methicillin-resistant Staph aureus (MRSA).
