Data on Telavancin and Micafungin Hold Promise of New Therapeutic,Options in Fight Against Serious Infectious Disease

tic resistant bacterial infections are an emerging issue in hospitals and there is a real risk that we are fast running out of effective treatment options. The results of ATLAS 1 and ATLAS 2 demonstrate that telavancin may offer a new option in our fight against serious bacterial infections".

Telavancin is currently undergoing regulatory review at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Telavancin is a novel, rapidly bactericidal lipoglycopeptide with activity against important Gram-positive bacteria. Telavancin possesses a unique, multivalent, multifunctional mode of action that inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis and disrupts the functional integrity of the bacterial cell membrane.

Micafungin data

Micafungin data presented show that micafungin demonstrates broad-spectrum efficacy against Candida infections.(8) More specifically data showed that in adult patients with deep, invasive Candida, micafungin was associated with efficacy comparable to established treatments, liposomal amphotericin B (L-AmB) and intravenous caspofungin,(9) and that there were significant safety advantages of micafungin over L-AmB in terms of a difference in acute infusion related reactions and Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR).(10) Data presented also showed that in paediatric patients with invasive candidiasis or candidaemia, micafungin was as effective as standard therapy with AmBisome(R) (L-AmB), with fewer patients experiencing treatment-related adverse events and fewer discontinuations.(11)

Micafungin is currently undergoing clinical evaluation at the EMEA. Micafungin is licensed in the US for the treatment of oesophageal candidiasis and for the prophylaxis of fungal infections caused by Candida in patients who are undergoing a haematopoietic stem cell transplant.

Commenting on the data presented at ECCMID, Dr John Bolodeoku, European Senior Medical Director, Astellas Pharma Inc. said, "Effective prevention and treatment strategies
