Baxter International Inc. and Water Street Healthcare Partners Announce FDA Approval of CEFAZOLIN 2 Gram Premix

Baxter International Inc. and Water Street Healthcare Partners announced the United States Food and Drug Administration has approved CEFAZOLIN Injection in GALAXY Container (2 g/100 mL), which is Baxter’s flexible container that uses the company’s proprietary aseptic filling manufacturing processes. CEFAZOLIN injection is a cephalosporin antibacterial indicated for preoperative prophylaxis treatment. When used for preoperative prevention, it may reduce the incidence of certain postoperative infections for high-risk patients undergoing surgical procedures. CEFAZOLIN injection has been on the FDA’s drug shortage list for more than one year due to high demand. Baxter anticipates launching CEFAZOLIN injection 2 gram frozen premix in its GALAXY container in the United States in the fourth quarter of 2015. CEFAZOLIN injection 2 gram represents the first of nine molecules actively under development to provide healthcare providers needed injectable formulations of essential drugs frequently used in critical care settings through Baxter’s development partnership with Celerity Pharmaceuticals, LLC, a company of Water Street, a strategic investor focused exclusively on the healthcare industry. Cefazolin injection is a cephalosporin antibacterial indicated for preoperative prophylaxis. Use an alternative cefazolin product when lengthy surgical procedures require supplemental doses and when postoperative dosing is required. To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of Cefazolin injection and other antibacterial drugs, Cefazolin injection should be used only to prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria.
