Zoliflodacin (development codes AZD0914 and ETX0914) is an experimental antibiotic that is being studied for the treatment of infection with Neisseria gonorrhoeae (gonorrhea).[1] It has a novel mechanism of action which involves inhibition of bacterial type II topoisomerases.[2] It is being developed by Entasis Therapeutics and is (as of 2020) in Phase III clinical trials.[3]
