Cethromycin Achieves All Endpoints in Second Pivotal Phase III Trial for Treatment of Pneumonia
Date:11/15/2007

d

to its existing bacteriologically evaluable patient database for

cethromycin.

-- Discontinuation rate -- from the modified intent-to-treat population,

discontinuation rate due to adverse events was 4.2% for cethromycin

and 2.8% for Biaxin.

Cethromycin demonstrated a favorable safety profile in Trial CL-05. The incidence of adverse events was not statistically different between cethromycin and Biaxin. The most common adverse events reported in patients receiving cethromycin were mild-to-moderate diarrhea (cethromycin 4.5%, Biaxin 4.1%), headache (cethromycin 2.4%, Biaxin 3.1%), nausea (cethromycin 4.5%, Biaxin 1.4%), vomiting (cethromycin 1.4%, Biaxin 1.0%), abdominal pain (cethromycin 1.4%, Biaxin 1.4%) and taste disturbance (cethromycin 7.6%, Biaxin 2.1%). No drug-related serious adverse events were observed in any study subject. Liver function tests and electrocardiogram monitoring in Trial CL-05 demonstrated no significant differences between subjects receiving cethromycin and subjects receiving Biaxin. This is consistent with the hepatic and cardiac side effect profile reported in previous cethromycin clinical trials.
