The Company’s lead commercial product, NUZYRA® (omadacycline), which has launched and is available in the U.S., is a once-daily oral and intravenous antibiotic for the treatment of adults with community-acquired bacterial pneumonia and acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections caused by select susceptible microorganisms.
The Company has agreed on a path forward with the FDA to evaluate an oral-only dosing regimen for NUZYRA in community-acquired bacterial pneumonia or “CABP”. The study is designed to demonstrate in approximately 20 CABP patients that the oral-only dosing regimen of NUZYARA will be comparable to the pharmacokinetics profile of our FDA-approved IV-followed by oral dosing regimen in patients with CABP. The Company anticipates a submission and potential approval for this posology in time for the 2020 influenza-pneumonia season.
Under a research agreement with the U.S. Department of Defense, NUZYRA is being studied against pathogenic agents causing infectious diseases of public health and biodefense importance, including plague and anthrax.
