Savara Pharmaceuticals Initiates Phase 2 Clinical Trial of AeroVanc for MRSA Lung Infection in Cystic Fibrosis Patients
Date:4/18/2013

powder form of vancomycin in a capsule-based device designed for convenient self-administration. By targeting vancomycin directly to the lungs, AeroVanc is expected to improve clinical efficacy and reduce side effects due to systemic drug exposure.

About Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis is a life-shortening genetic disease characterized by thick, sticky mucus in the lungs and frequent lung infections, which result in loss of lung function. As the disease progresses, the lungs of CF patients are typically infected with bacteria that are difficult to eradicate. Physicians have been using nebulized antibiotics to treat these infections and have sought new options for treatment in the chronic care setting. The first successful reformulation of an antibiotic into dry powder inhaled therapy is the recently FDA-approved TOBI Podhaler (tobramycin inhalation powder) for Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections in CF patients. Infection by MRSA has become increasingly common with a prevalence of almost 30 percent of the estimated 30,000 CF patients in the U.S.
