Zabofloxacin is an investigational fluoroquinolone antibiotic for multidrug-resistant infections due to Gram-positive bacteria.[1][2][3] It also has activity against Neisseria gonorrhoeae including strains that are resistant to other quinolone antibiotics.[4]

Zabofloxacin was discovered by Dong Wha Pharmaceuticals and licensed to Pacific Beach BioSciences for development.[5]
