Antibiotic: It kills patients with special infection
About the author:

The antibiotic Zyvox (linezolid) is killing patients whose catheters have caused an infection

The antibiotic Zyvox (linezolid) is killing patients whose catheters have caused an infection.

A new study has found that Zyvox dramatically increases the risk of death, compared with other antibiotics, when it is given to patients fitted with a catheter that became infected by organisms known as Gram negatives.

It comes as no great surprise to hear that Zyvox has never been licensed for use against Gram negative infection.
