Nabriva Therapeutics to present data at ECCMID
Nabriva Therapeutics announced that it will present data at the 27th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseasestaking place in Vienna, Austria from April 22-25. In total, the company will showcase nine abstracts, three of which were selected as oral presentations. These data are part of a growing body of evidence supporting lefamulin's profile as a potential first-line, empiric treatment for the key pathogens, including multidrug resistant strains, that are known to cause community-acquired bacterial pneumonia. "Antibacterial resistance continues to spread, rendering currently available antibiotics less effective. It is critical that new classes of antibiotics continue to be developed to provide physicians treatment options for patients with serious infections," said Steven P. Gelone, Pharm.D., Chief Development Officer at Nabriva. "With a novel mechanism of action, lefamulin provides a targeted spectrum of activity that covers the most common bacterial causes of CABP, including multidrug resistant strains and atypical pathogens. The data being presented at ECCMID are supportive of our ongoing Phase 3 clinical development program, and we look forward to reporting top-line data from our first pivotal trial, known as LEAP 1, in the third quarter of 2017."
