Positive outcomes. Positive patient stories.

At Paratek, solutions are provided that enable positive outcomes and lead to positive patient stories. Paratek Pharmaceuticals is a biopharmaceutical company that develops transformative solutions for patients, both in and out of the hospital, with diseases that are not responsive to current treatments.

We focus on drugs that target infectious disease and other difficult to treat conditions.

Today, we have a particularly promising antibiotic called Omadacycline for serious community acquired infections where resistance is of concern.

Core Insight

Everybody has a story about their healthcare. Many are stories of healing – the kind of stories we work towards everyday. Yet some have unhappier endings, poor outcomes; whether it’s an unsuccessful treatment, a serious side effect or a life threatening complication, these might have been avoided. The smallest decisions tip the scales. With the right drugs, the right knowledge and the right people, we can transform those everyday decisions into everyday triumphs.

In the end, data isn’t remembered - stories are. Physicians want their patients to have the best stories possible.


Our Promise

To empower physicians with the tools they need to create better stories. We’re on a mission to help turn every day decisions into everyday triumphs for patients with diseases that are not responsive to current treatments.

Paratek's lead candidate, omadacycline, is the first in a new class of tetracyclines known as aminomethylcyclines, with broad-spectrum activity against Gram-positive, Gram-negative and atypical bacteria. 

Omadacycline is a new, once-daily, oral and IV, well-tolerated, broad-spectrum antibiotic being developed for use as empiric monotherapy for patients suffering from serious community-acquired bacterial infections, such as acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI), community acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP), urinary tract infections (UTI), and other community-acquired bacterial infections, particularly when antibiotic resistance is of concern.

We believe omadacycline will be used to treat patients in both the community and hospital setting.  We have designed omadacycline to overcome many of the limitations of existing antibiotics. Omadacycline has a broad spectrum of activity, including activity against commonly resistant bacteria; it is dosed once daily and has both an oral and intravenous (IV) formulation. In clinical trials omadacycline has shown a favorable safety and tolerability profile.

As resistance to older antibiotic therapy continues to cause treatment failure we believe that omadacycline will become the primary antibiotic choice of physicians for use as an empiric monotherapy for acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections, community-acquired bacterial pneumonia, urinary tract infections and other serious community-acquired bacterial infections.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted omadacycline a Qualified Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) designation and completed two special protocol assessments for its Phase 3 clinical trial program.

Our second Phase 3 product candidate, sarecycline, is a new, once-daily, oral tetracycline-derived compound for the potential treatment of acne and rosacea in the community setting. Sarecycline was designed to be a well-tolerated, once-daily, oral, narrow spectrum antibiotic with anti-inflammatory properties. Paratek has licensed the U.S. rights to Allergan for the development and commercialization of sarecycline. Paratek retains all ex-U.S. rights.
