Entasis Therapeutics Inc. Key Developments

Entasis Therapeutics and Global Antibiotic Research & Development Partnership to Develop New Treatment for Drug-Resistant Gonorrhea

Zoliflodacin, a novel oral antibiotic and one of the only treatments in development to address the threat of drug-resistant gonorrhea will enter pivotal trials, due to a new partnership between Global Antibiotic Research and Development Partnership (GARDP) and Entasis Therapeutics. Entasis and GARDP will co-develop the antibiotic, zoliflodacin, in a global Phase 3 clinical trial to be carried out in countries including South Africa, the United States of America, and Thailand. The US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), plans to support pharmacological studies on the drug as part of the development programme. In parallel with the Phase 3 trial, which is sponsored by GARDP/DNDi (Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative), GARDP will work with Entasis scientists to carry out non-clinical activities – including microbiology surveys to ensure that the product is effective against recent and geographically diverse strains of gonorrhea. If zoliflodacin receives regulatory approval, Entasis will grant GARDP an exclusive license with sublicensing rights in most low- and middle-income countries, while retaining commercial rights in high-income markets. Both GARDP and Entasis are committed to affordable and equitable pricing in their respective territories.

Entasis Therapeutics Inc. Publishes Data Highlighting the Potent and Differentiated Activity of ETX2514 Combinations Against Drug Resistant Gram-Negative Bacteria Including Acinetobacter and Pseudomonas

Entasis Therapeutics Inc. published a report in Nature Microbiology (DOI: 10.1038/nmicrobiol.2017.104) in which Entasis scientists describe the rational design and expanded spectrum activity of ETX2514 against Class A, C, and a broad spectrum of Class D beta-lactamases, important targets in the treatment of resistant bacteria. The report includes the results of in vitro and preclinical in vivo studies, which demonstrate the ability of ETX2514 to restore antimicrobial activity in combination with multiple beta-lactams against Gram-negative, multi-drug resistant (MDR) pathogens. ETX2514 exhibited particularly promising activity in combination with sulbactam against Acinetobacter baumannii, including hard-to-treat carbapenem-resistant and colistin-resistant strains, and with imipenem against carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The ability of ETX2514 to be administered concurrently with sulbactam and/or imipenem is currently being investigated in a Phase 1 clinical trial.
