Garenoxacin (INN) is a quinolone antibiotic for the treatment of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial infections.

Garenoxacin was discovered by Toyama Chemical Co., Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan, and is currently being marketed in Japan under the tradename Geninax. Schering-Plough holds worldwide rights for garenoxacin, except for Japan, South Korea, and China.

On February 13, 2006, Schering-Plough announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration had accepted the New Drug Application (NDA) for garenoxacin, and had been granted a 10-month review.[1] As of 2015, however, it has not been approved in the USA.

Schering-Plough later withdrew its application to the United States Food and Drug Administration, FDA, (August 20, 2006) for approval of the antibiotic Garenoxacin.[2]

The European Medicines Agency (EMEA) had also been formally notified by Schering-Plough Europe (July 28, 2007) of its decision to withdraw the application for a centralized marketing authorization for garenoxacin as well.[3][4][5] Based on the CHMP review of the data regarding safety and efficacy (risk/benefit), the CHMP considered the application for garenoxacin to be unapprovable.[6]
