"Assessment of In Vitro Activity of Cethromycin Against Strains of Haemophilus Influenzae"

Cethromycin demonstrated potent in vitro activity against all Haemophius influenzae isolates studied regardless of beta-lactamase status. Based on the MIC data, cethromycin potency was comparable to telithromycin and azithromycin, and was superior to clarithromycin. These findings demonstrate that cethromycin has the potential to be a potent therapeutic option for the treatment of CAP caused by Haemophilus influenzae.

The following poster presentations demonstrated the potency of cethromycin as a potential treatment against bioterrorism pathogens:

"Efficacy of Cethromycin Against a Lethal Inhalation Anthrax Challenge in Rhesus Macaques"

All antibiotic treated animals maintained normal hematologic parameters and remained abacteremic throughout the treatment period. All cethromycin- treated animals survived, with only 1/10 demonstrating abnormal hematologic parameters following antibiotic cessation. One ciprofloxacin-treated animal demonstrated clinical signs of infection, bacteremia, alterations in hematologic and coagulation parameters, and died nine days after cessation of antibiotic treatments. All 10 control monkeys demonstrated a combination of clinical signs of anthrax, bacteremia, and/or alterations in hematologic and coagulation parameters post-challenge with five of ten succumbing to the infection. This study demonstrated that a thirty day course of oral cethromycin was 100% protective against a lethal dose of inhaled Bacillus anthracis Ames strain spores.

"Antimicrobial Activity of Cethromycin, a Novel Ketolide, Tested Against a Diverse Collection of Francisella Tularensis Strains"

Cethromycin was efficacious against 30 Francisella tularensis strains. Cethromycin had significant in vitro activity against Francisella tularensis. Cethromycin preferentially accumulates in the alveolar cells of the lungs,
