Información del artículo

Daptomicina es un lipopéptido cíclico con una actividad rápidamente bactericida frente a bacterias grampositivas. Su farmacocinética permite administrarla una vez al día en forma de bolo intravenoso (incluyendo bolo rápido de 2 min). Ello, unido a su excelente perfil de seguridad, la convierte en un fármaco de primera línea para su uso como tratamiento antibiótico parenteral a domicilio (TADE). La mayor evidencia de daptomicina en TADE la encontramos en infección de piel y tejidos blandos, complicada o no, e infección osteoarticular por bacterias grampositivas. Para el resto de indicaciones, el uso de daptomicina en TADE deberá ser evaluado de forma individualizada. Los datos del EUCORE español reflejan el uso de daptomicina en nuestro país, con un alto índice de éxito terapéutico, tanto en el paciente hospitalizado como en los pacientes que reciben el fármaco en régimen de hospitalización a domicilio.

Daptomycin is a cyclic lipopeptide with a rapid bactericidal effect against Gram-positive bacteria. The pharmacokinetic properties of this drug allow once-daily intravenous infusion as the best posology (including a 2-minute bolus). Because of its ease of administration and excellent safety profile, daptomycin is a first-line agent for use as outpatient antimicrobial parenteral therapy (OPAT). The best evidence supporting this indication exists for the treatment of complicated and uncomplicated skin and soft tissue infections, as well as osteoarticular infections caused by Gram-positive bacteria. For the remaining indications, the use of daptomycin as OPAT should be analyzed in each patient. Information from the EUCORE Registry in Spain indicates that daptomycin has high rates of treatment success in both hospitalized patient and in those included in OPAT programs.
