Paratek Reports Positive Phase 2 Clinical Data on its New Antibiotic PTK 0796 in Late Breaker Presentation at the 48th Annual Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy
Date:10/26/2008

o-treat pathogens. Introduced more than 50 years ago, tetracyclines remain among the most commonly used antiinfective agents to combat bacterial infections. However, the emergence of resistance has curtailed their effectiveness in certain infections. Paratek has utilized its expertise to create AMC compounds, such as PTK 0796, that retain the appealing safety and spectrum of activity of the tetracyclines while overcoming tetracycline and multi-drug resistance.

Representing one of the top therapeutic categories, the antibiotics market generates worldwide sales of over $26 billion, despite the availability of low-priced generic products for many infections. In recent years, eight antibiotics have attained annual sales of more than $1 billion each. The growing medical problem of drug-resistant bacteria presents a new and expanding market opportunity. Bacterial resistance is causing many of the current antibiotics to lose efficacy, while the pipeline of replacement products that target antibiotic resistance is remarkably thin.
