Nabriva Therapeutics AG is an Austria-based clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company engaged in the research and development of antibiotics to treat infections. I am extremely proud and appreciative of the Nabriva Therapeutics team that has advanced lefamulin, which has the potential to be the first in a new class of antibiotics for CABP in more than 15 years, from initial discovery in our labs to this important milestone. This is the first of two phase 3 clinical trials needed to seek regulatory approval for lefamulin. The Company develops both intravenous (IV) and oral formulations of lefamulin for the treatment of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP). It is also developing BC-7013, a topical pleuromutilin product candidate, which has completed a Phase 1 clinical trial. The company was formerly known as Nabriva Therapeutics Forschungs GmbH and changed its name to Nabriva Therapeutics AG in 2007.
