07:09 EDTAGNAllergan announces topline results from RECAPTURE 1 and 2
Allergan announced positive topline results from RECAPTURE 1 and 2, the pivotal Phase III studies evaluating the antibiotic AVYCAZ as a treatment for adult hospitalized patients with complicated urinary tract infections, including pyelonephritis. AVYCAZ consists of a cephalosporin, ceftazidime, an established treatment for serious bacterial infections, and the first and only non-beta lactam beta-lactamase inhibitor, avibactam. The addition of avibactam protects ceftazidime from being broken down by certain beta-lactamases that are produced by these resistant bacteria. The global RECAPTURE 1 and 2 Phase III studies evaluated the safety and efficacy of AVYCAZ administered intravenously as a two-hour infusion, compared to doripenem, administered intravenously as a 30-minute infusion, in hospitalized adult patients with cUTI, including pyelonephritis. Data from the studies were analysed as a single-pooled dataset with the agreement of the US FDA and the EMA. AVYCAZ was also effective in treating cUTI patients infected with ceftazidime-resistant bacteria. Allergan plans to submit this data as a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) to the Food and Drug Administration by the end of 2015.
