Overview

Vantobra is an antibiotic used for treating long-term lung infection caused by the bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa in patients aged six years and older who have cystic fibrosis.

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disease in which thick mucus builds up in the lungs that allows bacteria to grow more easily, causing infections. P. aeruginosa is a frequent cause of infections in cystic fibrosis patients.

Vantobra is a ‘hybrid medicine’. This means that it is similar to a ‘reference medicine’ containing the same active substance, tobramycin; however, Vantobra has a higher amount of the active substance. The reference medicine for Vantobra is Tobi.
