"CDAD can be devastating. The initial disease can be serious, even life-threatening, and about 20 to 30% may have a recurrence. In some cases, patients have many recurrences.

Optimer also has filed a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for approval of fidaxomicin, and has entered into an exclusive collaboration and license agreement with Astellas Pharma Europe Ltd. to develop and commercialize the drug in Europe and certain other countries.
