Entasis is seeking a pathogen-specific approval for its antibiotic/beta lactamase inhibitor candidate rather than an indication specific the site of an infection. Achaogen’s earlier failure to do the same may have helped set a path.
With Phase III data showing non-inferiority to colistin, as well as nephrotoxicity superiority, Entasis thinks sulbactam/durlobactam will provide a new standard of care and succeed where Achaogen’s Zemdri failed.
