About Paratek Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
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 the first in a new class of tetracyclines known as aminomethylcyclines, with broad-spectrum activity against Gram-positive, Gram-negative and atypical bacteria. In June 2016 Paratek announced positive efficacy data in a Phase 3 registration study in ABSSSI demonstrating the efficacy, safety and tolerability of the once-daily oral and IV formulations of omadacycline compared to linezolid. A Phase 3 registration study for community acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP) comparing omadacycline to moxifloxacin was initiated in November 2015 and top line data is expected as early as the third quarter of 2017. A phase 1b study in uncomplicated urinary tract infections (uUTI) was initiated in May 2016. Omadacycline has been granted QIDP and Fast Track status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Omadacycline is a new once-daily oral and IV, well-tolerated broad spectrum antibiotic being developed for use as empiric monotherapy for patients suffering from serious community-acquired bacterial infections, such as acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections, community acquired bacterial pneumonia, urinary tract infections and other community-acquired bacterial infections, particularly when antibiotic resistance is of concern to prescribing physicians.
Paratek's second Phase 3 product candidate, sarecycline, is designed to be a well-tolerated, once-daily, oral, narrow spectrum tetracycline-derived antibiotic with potent anti-inflammatory properties for the potential treatment of acne and rosacea in the community setting. Allergan owns the U.S. rights for the development and commercialization of sarecycline. Paratek retains all ex-U.S. rights. Allergan initiated two identical Phase 3 registration studies in December 2014 for sarecycline for the treatment of moderate to severe acne vulgaris.
