Created under the Generating Antibiotics Incentives Now (GAIN) Act of 2012, QIDP designation provides Viamet with significant incentives for the development of VT-1129, including the potential for priority review by the FDA, eligibility for fast-track status, and a five-year extension of marketing exclusivity under the Hatch-Waxman Act. The company also announced that VT-1129 will be highlighted in two presentations at the 2015 American Society for Microbiology (ASM) Interscience Conference of Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) and International Society of Chemotherapy (ISC) International Congress of Chemotherapy and Infection (ICC).

Viamet Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and the Mycoses Study Group Education & Research Consortium announced the establishment of a strategic collaboration to advance a novel therapy for cryptococcal meningitis and other life-threatening fungal infections. This collaboration will combine the antifungal drug discovery and development expertise of Viamet with the strategic clinical development expertise of the MSGERC. Cryptococcal meningitis is a life-threatening invasive fungal infection of the brain and spinal cord that occurs most often in immunocompromised patients, including those with HIV infection, transplant recipients and oncology patients. In preclinical studies, VT-1129 has demonstrated the ability to completely eradicate the fungal pathogen that causes cryptococcal meningitis from the central nervous system.
