Latest From Entasis Therapeutics Holdings Inc.
Having recently bought antibacterial developer Entasis, Innoviva adds approved antibiotic Xerava and hypotension drug Giapreza to its portfolio along with La Jolla’s established commercial organization.
Already owner of about 60% of the troubled antibiotic firm, Innoviva agrees to pay $2.20 per share for all outstanding stock in Entasis. Roche, KaliVir partner on oncolytic virus therapies.
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.
