B-817: A novel staphylococcal murine preclinical model of infection was established for diaminopyrimidines. The efficacy of iclaprim was shown to be equal or better than that of vancomycin.
E-903, E-907, E-908, E-909: Iclaprim shows good activity against important pathogens such as Chlamydia trachomatis, Legionella pneumophila, Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Enterobacteriaceae. These are involved in various clinical indications.
A-804, A-805, A-806: Important Phase I data on intravenous and oral iclaprim. Iclaprim exhibited extensive tissue distribution, showed good oral bioavailability and was well-tolerated in volunteers.
A-803, A-807: these posters described important data on pharmacokinetics in the marmoset and in vitro interaction studies with CYP450 enzymes.
D-243, D-244, D-245: These posters describe the reliability of results when testing susceptibility for iclaprim using various methods and under different circumstances. The studies show a narrow range of test results and a good correlation between Minimum Inhibitory Concentrations (MICs) under different methods.
