Lefamulin Successful in Late-Stage CABP Study

In September 2017, Lefamulin completed LEAP 1 study, a pivotal, international Phase-3 clinical trial. The study evaluated the efficacy and safety of intravenous (IV) to oral lefamulin in adult patients with moderate to severe CABP compared to moxifloxacin with or without adjunctive linezolid. In LEAP 1, lefamulin met both the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA) primary endpoints of non-inferiority compared to moxifloxacin with or without adjunctive linezolid.

Nabriva Anticipates Filing NDA in the Second Half of 2018

In the US, Nabriva anticipates filing a New Drug Application (NDA) in the second half of 2018 contingent on positive results from its second, pivotal Phase-3 clinical trial of lefamulin for CAPB, which is referred to as LEAP 2. Top-line data from LEAP 2 is expected in the spring of 2018. LEAP 2 is designed to assess the efficacy and safety of oral lefamulin compared to oral moxifloxacin in adult patients with moderate CABP.

About Community-Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia

CABP refers to pneumonia contracted by a person with little contact with the healthcare system. CABP is a leading cause of illness and death worldwide. Its causes include bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. Symptoms and signs are fever, cough, sputum production, pleuritic chest pain, dyspnea, tachypnea, and tachycardia. Diagnosis is based on clinical presentation and chest x-ray.

About Lefamulin

Lefamulin is a semi-synthetic derivative of pleuromutilin that inhibits a key process for bacterial growth. In pre-clinical studies, lefamulin has demonstrated a targeted spectrum of activity against pathogens that most commonly cause CABP, including multi-drug resistant strains. Due to its novel mechanism of action, low incidence of cross-resistance between other antibacterial agents commonly used to treat CABP, and low propensity for bacterial resistance to develop, lefamulin has the potential to be used as a first-line empiric monotherapy for the treatment of CABP.
