Advanced Life Sciences Announces Restanza(TM) Granted FDA Orphan Drug Designation for Plague and Tularemia
Date:9/15/2009

CHICAGO, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Advanced Life Sciences Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ADLS) today announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Orphan Drug Designation to Restanza(TM) (cethromycin), its novel, once daily oral antibiotic, for the prophylactic treatment of plague and tularemia.

High-priority agents include organisms that pose a risk to national security because they can be easily disseminated or transmitted, result in high mortality rates and have the potential for major public health impact, might cause public panic and social disruption, and require special action for public health preparedness.
