Paratek Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative therapies based upon its expertise in novel tetracycline chemistry. Paratek's lead product candidate, omadacycline, is a new tetracycline-derived, broad-spectrum antibiotic being developed in both oral tablet and intravenous formulations for use as a first-line monotherapy antibiotic for ABSSSI, CABP, UTI and other serious community-acquired bacterial infections, particularly when antibiotic resistance is of concern to prescribing physicians. Omadacycline has received Qualified Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for both the oral and intravenous formulations in all three of these infectious disease categories. Paratek has Special Protocol Assessment agreements with the FDA for the phase 3 trials planned in ABSSSI and CABP.
Paratek's second product candidate, sarecycline (WC 3035), is a new tetracycline-derived compound, designed to provide both a narrow-spectrum of antibiotic activity and favorable tolerability profile, for the treatment of acne and rosacea in the community setting. Paratek has licensed rights to sarecycline (WC 3035) for the treatment of acne in the United States to a subsidiary of Actavis (formerly Warner Chilcott), while retaining rights in the rest of the world. Actavis is responsible for the clinical development of sarecycline (WC 3035) for the treatment of acne in the United States. A phase 3 program in moderate to severe acne is expected to be initiated in 2014 for WC 3035.
