Trius' Torezolid Antibiotic for the Treatment of Severe Skin Infections Featured at ICAAC Meeting
Date:9/12/2009

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Trius Therapeutics, Inc. announced today that 13 posters will be presented at the 49th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) supporting the potency, efficacy and safety of torezolid as a potential new antibiotic for the treatment of severe skin infections caused by gram positive bacteria including MRSA. Additional data from a previously announced Phase 2 study of torezolid (TR-701) reiterate the high efficacy of torezolid at the low 200 mg dose against methicillin-sensitive and methicillin-resistant bacteria in patients with severe complicated skin and skin structure infections (cSSSI). In vitro studies presented at ICAAC highlight the potency of torezolid against linezolid-resistant MRSA and cfr-mediated resistant bacteria.

"The package of data Trius is presenting at ICAAC provides compelling evidence of the high efficacy of torezolid against difficult to treat bacterial skin infections, including potency against bacterial strains proven to be resistant to linezolid," said Philippe Prokocimer, M.D., chief medical officer at Trius." There is an urgent need for more potent antibiotics like torezolid with different mechanisms of action that can circumvent drug resistance pathways."

ICAAC data presentations are as follows:
