Date:1/9/2012

in basic research. Optimer will, however, retain its clinical R&D capabilities to develop product candidates.

Hospital Formulary and Patient Access Update
At the end of 2011 DIFICID was on formulary at more than 450 hospitals, a 30% increase in formulary adoption since mid November. Optimer continues to make progress in formulary adoption by hospitals.

Patient access to DIFICID has also improved. Currently:

  • DIFICID is covered by 89% of Optimer's targeted payor plans, meaning approximately 75% of all covered lives in the United States have access to DIFICID
  • 90% of targeted commercial payors and 82% of targeted Medicare Part D payors cover DIFICID 
  • The top five commercial Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) and four of the top five Medicare PBMs cover DIFICID
  • Commercial and Medicare Part D DIFICID copayment amounts are comparable to Vancocin

Important Safety Information for DIFICID
DIFICID should not be used for systemic infections. Only use DIFICID for infection proven or strongly suspected to be caused by C. difficile. Prescribing DIFICID in the absence of a proven or strongly suspected C. difficile infection is unlikely to provide benefit to the patient and increases the risk of the development of drug resistant bacteria. The most common adverse reactions are nausea (11%), vomiting (7%), abdominal pain (6%), gastrointestinal hemorrhage (4%), anemia (2%), and neutropenia (2%)

Please visit www.DIFICID.com or call 855-DIFICID (343-4243) for full prescribing information for DIFICID.
