the cornerstone of our pursuit and receipt of a shorter-course therapy of FACTIVE for CAP. This publication and recent treatment guidelines reinforce the utility of FACTIVE."

The multicenter, double-blind study enrolled 510 patients with CAP, with 469 patients comprising the per protocol group. Clinical response at follow-up, the primary endpoint, in the per protocol group was 95% for the five-day treatment arm and 92% for the seven-day treatment arm (95% CI: -1.48, 7.42), demonstrating non-inferiority between the two groups. Further, clinical response at end of therapy in the per protocol group was 96% for the five-day group and 96% for the seven-day group (95% CI: -3.85, 3.42). FACTIVE was well-tolerated in the study, with a low withdrawal rate due to adverse events: 1.2% for the five-day group and 2.0% for the seven-day group. There were no withdrawals due to rash and the rate of drug-related rash in both treatment groups was low: 0.4% for the five-day arm and 2.8% for the seven-day arm.

Community-acquired pneumonia is a common and serious illness in the United States with an estimated four to five million cases per year, one million of which occur in patients over the age of 65. CAP cases result in approximately 10 million physician visits and as many as one million hospitalizations annually. To date, approximately one million patients worldwide have been treated with FACTIVE.
