Feb 11 15
MerLion Pharmaceuticals announced that an otic suspension of finafloxacin has been approved by the FDA to treat acute otitis externa, commonly known as swimmer's ear, caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus. Finafloxacin was licensed by MerLion to a major North American partner in 2010 for use in North America for otic (ear) infections. MerLion retains the rights to intravenous and oral formulations of finafloxacin for all other indications and recently announced positive results from a phase 2 trial conducted in Europe treating around 200 patients hospitalized with complicated urinary tract infections. The results from this study demonstrated positive outcomes at all primary and all secondary endpoints; with patients treated once daily for five days with finafloxacin seeing higher, more rapid and sustained level of microbiological eradication and improved clinical outcomes compared to those treated with the current standard of care (ciprofloxacin taken twice daily for 10 days).
