Cempra Awarded $58 Million Contract to Develop Antibiotic for Pediatric Use and Biodefense by Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA)
Date:5/28/2013

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cempra, Inc. (Nasdaq: CEMP), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on developing differentiated antibiotics, today announced that the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) has awarded Cempra with a five year contract valued up to $58 million for the development of solithromycin to treat infections in pediatric populations and for the treatment of infections by bioterror threat pathogens.  Solithromycin, Cempra's lead product candidate, is a fourth generation macrolide antibiotic in the fluoroketolide family that is currently in Phase 3 development for community-acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP) in adults.  The company will host a conference call and webcast at 8:30 a.m. EDT, tomorrow, May 29, to discuss the agreement.

"We are delighted that BARDA has recognized solithromycin as a potentially safe and effective treatment for the pediatric population," said Prabhavathi Fernandes, Ph.D., chief executive officer of Cempra. "Macrolides have traditionally been favored for use in pediatrics because of their safety and efficacy.  Solithromycin's approval would be the first orally administered antibiotic approved in decades, and azithromycin (Zithromax® or Z-Pak) was the last macrolide approved, which was in 1991.  We view BARDA's funding of this project as recognition of the potential of solithromycin to have broad utility in all age groups."

The upfront contract is for a two year base period with guaranteed funding of $17.7 million and is extendable up to five years bringing the value of the total contract to $58 million.  The contract is expected to fund a variety of activities that are planned to lead to
