The ORBACTIV® Assistance Program provides information about ORBACTIV® and about assistance that may be available to patients who meet certain criteria, including that they are not insured by a federal health care program. More information is available through the ORBACTIV® Assistance Program.

Important Safety Information


Use of intravenous unfractionated heparin sodium is contraindicated for 120 hours (5 days) after ORBACTIV® administration because the activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) test results are expected to remain falsely elevated for approximately 120 hours (5 days) after ORBACTIV® administration.

ORBACTIV® is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to ORBACTIV®.

Warnings and Precautions

Coagulation test interference: ORBACTIV® has been shown to artificially prolong aPTT for up to 120 hours, and may prolong PT and INR for up to 12 hours, ACT for up to 24 hours, and D-dimer for up to 72 hours.

Hypersensitivity reactions have been reported with the use of antibacterial agents including ORBACTIV®. Discontinue infusion if signs of acute hypersensitivity occur. Monitor closely patients with known hypersensitivity to glycopeptides.

Infusion-related reactions have been reported. Slow the rate or interrupt infusion if infusion reaction develops.

Clostridium difficile-associated colitis: Evaluate patients if diarrhea occurs.

Concomitant warfarin use: Patients should be monitored for bleeding if concomitantly receiving ORBACTIV® and warfarin.

Osteomyelitis: Institute appropriate alternate antibacterial therapy in patients with confirmed or suspected osteomyelitis.

Prescribing ORBACTIV® in the absence of a proven or strongly suspected bacterial infection is unlikely to provide benefit to the patient and increases the risk of development of drug-resistant bacteria.

Adverse Reactions

The most common adverse reactions (≥3%) in patients treated with ORBACTIV® were headache, nausea, vomiting, limb and subcutaneous abscesses, and diarrhea.
