CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Cempra Pharmaceuticals today announced the appointment of John H. Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of ImClone Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eli Lilly and Company, to the company's Board of Directors. Mr. Johnson brings more than 25 years of biopharmaceutical executive and operational management experience, including leadership of successful anti-infective businesses and numerous flagship pharmaceutical products, to his role as an independent member of the Board.

"Cempra is at a turning point in the company's development of its two lead compounds, as both are poised to advance into later stage clinical trials. I look forward to working with Cempra's other Board members and management to enable the success of these much-needed drugs."

Cempra's lead macrolide, CEM-101, will soon enter a Phase 2 clinical trial for moderate to moderately severe community-acquired bacterial pneumonia.
