Advanced Life Sciences is developing cethromycin, a novel once-a-day antibiotic in response to the emerging bacterial resistance observed in the treatment of community acquired pneumonia (CAP). Cethromycin has been tested in approximately 5,000 human subjects during clinical trials.
The Company conducted two, pivotal Phase III clinical trials of cethromycin for the treatment of mild-to-moderate CAP. In June of 2007, Advanced Life Sciences released positive results from the first of these two trials, Trial CL-06, which showed that cethromycin met primary and secondary clinical endpoints. The Company expects data from the second trial, CL-05 to be reported in the Fall. The Company believes that cethromycin, if approved, would build upon the growing market opportunity in the antibiotic marketplace and address the critical need for antibiotics that overcome bacterial resistance.
