acteria, including MRSA.

"Cubist has a proven track record and well established relations with all stakeholders involved in the antibiotics space.  We believe this collaboration will maximize the impact of and de-risk DIFICID's U.S. commercial launch, assuming approval," said Pedro Lichtinger, President and CEO of Optimer.  "Optimer plans to hire 100 sales representatives to target the 1,100 hospitals, which comprise about 70% of U.S. hospital CDI cases.  We also believe this collaboration with Cubist will allow us to accelerate formulary adoption, expand our market reach and penetration to up to 2,000 hospitals, comprising over 90% of U.S. hospital CDI cases, and commit resources to long-term care facilities that comprise approximately one-third of all CDI cases.  In addition, this provides the opportunity to capture the undiagnosed CDI market segment which some estimate to be as many as three million cases per year."

Cubist's President and CEO Michael Bonney said, "We believe that the strengths of Cubist's seasoned sales force, medical affairs team and our experience in the hospital will add tremendous value to Optimer's launch strategy and execution. We look forward to working with Optimer to introduce a much needed therapy for seriously ill patients suffering from CDAD."

The agreement expires two years from the first commercial sale of DIFICID.  The agreement can be renewed for additional terms upon agreement of the parties and can be terminated early by either party in certain defined situations. Optimer will be responsible for the manufacturing and distribution of DIFICID in the United States and for recording product revenue.  Optimer will be responsible for obtaining FDA approval, and will retain ownership of the New Drug Application.  For its efforts under the co-promotion agreement, including providing specified levels of resources and activities, Cubist will receive quarterly service fees of $3.75 mi
