Nabriva Therapeutics to Present Lefamulin Data at ID Week 2017

(September 28, 2017)

DUBLIN, Ireland and KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Sept. 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nabriva Therapeutics plc (NASDAQ:NBRV), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company engaged in the research and development of novel anti-infective agents to treat serious infections, with a focus on the pleuromutilin class of antibiotics, today announced that it will showcase data at ID Week 2017 taking place from October 4-8 in San Diego, California.

At the meeting, three presentations will feature the company’s most advanced pleuromutilin antibiotic, known as lefamulin. Earlier this month, Nabriva Therapeutics announced positive topline results from the first of two Phase 3 clinical trials in adults with community-acquired bacterial phenomena (CABP), known as LEAP 1.

“Resistance to current, gold standard, antibiotic therapies continues to grow and patients desperately need new therapies that possess a novel mechanism of action that result in potent activity against resistant pathogens, while minimizing the collateral damage often observed from broad spectrum antibacterial agents,” said Steven P. Gelone, Pharm.D., chief scientific officer at Nabriva Therapeutics. “These data add to the growing evidence supporting lefamulin’s targeted spectrum of activity against the pathogens most commonly associated with CABP, including multi-drug resistant strains.”

In addition, Dr. Gelone will deliver a presentation on lefamulin and participate in a panel focused on new antibiotic agents in development. 

Nabriva Therapeutics is hosting a Corporate Reception for ID Week attendees at the San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter Altitude Sky Lounge, 22nd Floor on Thursday, October 5, 2017 from 7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. To secure your attendance, please contact [email protected] by October 2, 2017.

About CABP

Based on Nabriva Therapeutics’ combined analysis of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 2007 National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey and 2013 data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project, Nabriva Therapeutics estimates that more than 5 million adults are treated annually for CABP in the United States. Additionally, based on 2013 data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project, Nabriva Therapeutics estimates that approximately 3.1 million of these adult CABP patients sought treatment in a hospital setting, where most are then treated with in-patient IV and oral antibiotics or out-patient oral antibiotics prescribed for use following hospital discharge or release.

About Nabriva Therapeutics plc

Nabriva Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the research and development of new medicines to treat serious bacterial infections, with a focus on the pleuromutilin class of antibiotics. Nabriva Therapeutics’ medicinal chemistry expertise has enabled targeted discovery of novel pleuromutilins, including both intravenous and oral formulations. Nabriva Therapeutics’ lead product candidate, lefamulin, is a novel semi-synthetic pleuromutilin antibiotic with the potential to be the first-in-class available for systemic administration in humans. The company believes that lefamulin is the first antibiotic with a novel mechanism of action to have reached late-stage clinical development in more than a decade. Nabriva has announced positive topline data for lefamulin from the first of its two global, registrational Phase 3 clinical trials evaluating lefamulin in patients with moderate to severe community-acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP). Nabriva Therapeutics believes lefamulin is well-positioned for use as a first-line empiric monotherapy for the treatment of moderate to severe CABP due to its novel mechanism of action, targeted spectrum of activity, resistance profile, achievement of substantial drug concentration in lung tissue and fluid, oral and IV formulations and a favorable tolerability profile, with the results of the LEAP 1 trial showing a rate of treatment-emergent adverse events comparable to moxifloxacin with or without linezolid. Nabriva Therapeutics intends to further pursue development of lefamulin for additional indications, including the treatment of acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI), and is developing a formulation of lefamulin appropriate for pediatric use.

Nabriva Therapeutics owns exclusive, worldwide rights to lefamulin, which is protected by composition of matter patents issued in the United States, Europe and Japan.
