Aztreonam is a monobactam antibiotic used primarily to treat infections caused by gram-negative bacteria. It is a synthetic drug based on a simpler monobactam isolated from Chromobacterium violaceum.
Aztreonam is commonly used in clinical in vitro microbiological antimicrobial susceptibility tests (panels, discs, and MIC strips) against negative microbial isolates. Aztreonam has also shown high potency against high-resistant superbug strains.
Nebulized forms of aztreonam are used to treat infections that are complications of cystic fibrosis and are approved for such use in Europe and the US.They are often used off-label for non-CF bronchiectasis, ventilator-associated pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, mycobacterial disease, and to treat infections in people who have received lung transplants.
