    Relebactam is a compound used in combination with antibiotics to improve their efficiency. It is a β-lactamase inhibitor with a diazbicyclooctane core. It has activity against a wide spectram of β-lactamases including class A (extended-spectrum β-lactamases and KPC) and class C (AmpC) enzymes. The R1 side chain of Relebactam includes a piperidine ring. The compound can be used in combination (imipenem/cilastatin/relebactam).

    Relebactam is soluble in water and DMSO but insoluble in ethanol.

    Molecular Formula C12H20N4O6S
    Spectrum Relebactam has activity against a wide spectrum of β-lactamases including class A (extended-spectrum β-lactamases and KPC) and class C (AmpC) enzymes
    Mechanism of Action

    Relebactam is a diazabicyclooctane inhibitor with activity against a wide spectrum of β-lactamases.

    Microbiology Applications

     Relebactam is a non-β-lactam of the diazabicyclo[3.2.1]octanone (DBO) series. It inhibits most class A and class C β-lactamases, with selected inhibition of class D enzymes by avibactam.

    Relebactam inhibits 5 clinically important class A serine B-lactamases (SBLs) representing both chromosomal and plasmid-borne enzymes (Tooke et al, 2019).

    Imipenem-Relebactam can be used for Enterobacteriaceae having complex β-lactamase backgrounds.
