07:10 EDTEBSEmergent BioSolutions acquires antibiotics portfolio
Emergent BioSolutions announced that it has acquired the EV-035 series of molecules from Evolva Holding SA. EV-035 is a series of novel small molecule broad spectrum antibiotics of the 4-oxoquinolizine class and targets bacterial type IIa topoisomerase. The lead molecule in the series, GC-072, has demonstrated protection in vivo from lethal B. pseudomallei infection when administered orally. GC-072 is being developed as a potential oral and IV treatment for B. pseudomallei under a three-year, $15M contract with the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, or DTRA, of the U.S. Department of Defense. B. pseudomallei is a gram-negative pathogen classified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a Category B bioterrorism agent and a priority threat capable of being easily weaponized and disseminated. The scope of the DTRA contract includes investigating GC-072 as a treatment for B. pseudomallei in preclinical in vitro and in vivo studies, conducting formulation, manufacturing and toxicology studies, exploring efficacy in additional multi-drug resistant biodefense and commercial pathogens, and preparing an Investigational New Drug application for submission to the FDA.
