For Treating Clostridium difficile Infections, Surveyed Infectious Disease Specialists Agree That Effect on Recurrence Rate is One of the Drug Attributes that Most Influences Their Prescribing Decisions

However, Decision Resources forecasts that surotomycin will earn a more-modest patient share of 5 percent, constrained partially by continued uptake of fidaxomicin (Optimer/Cubist's Dificid; Astellas' Dificlir), which has already demonstrated superiority in recurrence rates over oral vancomycin.

"Uptake of surotomycin will likely be constrained, unless it can demonstrate either higher clinical efficacy than Dificid or offer more favorable pricing", said Decision Resources Analyst Maria Ascano Ph.D. "Other factors that will also l
