"We are pleased to have submitted a full proposal to NIAID which, if awarded, could significantly advance the development of the intravenous (IV) formulation of Restanza™ (cethromycin) for the therapeutic treatment of bioterror pathogens as well as for the commercial indication of community acquired bacterial pneumonia," stated Michael T. Flavin, Ph.D., chief executive officer of Advanced Life Sciences.  "In addition to the efficacy demonstrated by the oral form of Restanza for post-exposure prophylaxis of anthrax, plague and tularemia, the oral form of Restanza has also shown initial efficacy in treating anthrax infection where symptoms are present.  This is significant because there are currently no agents approved by the FDA for the therapeutic treatment of anthrax, plague or tularemia and we believe that the increased bioavailability of the IV formulation of Restanza offers a promising option as a therapeutic treatment for these infections."
