In Vitro Activity of Sulopenem, an Oral Penem, Against Escherichia coli Isolated from Urine Specimens of Patients Across Canada in 2014-2016
"Quinolones, the most commonly prescribed class of antibiotics for treatment of uncomplicated urinary tract infections, are resulting in clinical failures at an alarming rate," said Michael Dunne, M.D., Chief Scientific Officer at Iterum Therapeutics. "Given the resistance to quinolones in the community, new treatment strategies, including new antibacterial therapies, are urgently needed."
"We believe sulopenem, with its spectrum of in vitro activity has considerable potential as an important new treatment option, in an oral and intravenous formulation, to help patients and physicians better address infections caused by resistant pathogens."
