- Eravacycline, a novel fluorocycline antibiotic, has been evaluated against complicated mixed aerobic/anaerobic intra-abdominal infections but scant supporting in vitro data against anaerobes has been published. We found that eravacycline had good anaerobic in vitro activity with MICs of 4 μg/ml or less against all Bacteroides and Parabacteroides strains tested, except for two B. ovatus strains that had MICs of 8 μg/ml and one strain that had an MIC of 16 μg/ml. Eravacycline was four-to-eight fold more active than tigecycline.
