Vabomere Is a New Combo Antibiotic for Rare Drug-Resistant Infections

Vabomere (meropenem/vaborbactam, VAY-boh-meer) will be the first "carbapenem/beta-lactamase inhibitor" antibiotic combo.

Vaborbactam helps meropenem outsmart bacteria that are otherwise resistant to carbapenems.

But don't expect Vabomere to fly off your shelves. There are only about 9,000 carbapenem-resistant infections each year in the U.S.
