Cempra Presenting Additional Data From the Phase 3 Oral Solithromycin Study in Community Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia at the American Thoracic Society Conference

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., May 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cempra, Inc. (Nasdaq:CEMP), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on developing antibiotics to meet critical medical needs in the treatment of bacterial infectious diseases, is presenting results from its Phase 3 clinical trial demonstrating the statistical non-inferiority of oral solithromycin versus oral moxifloxacin for the treatment of community acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP). Oral solithromycin demonstrated statistical non-inferiority to oral moxifloxacin for the treatment of CABP and the solithromycin early clinical response (ECR) and short term follow-up (SFU) rates were numerically higher than moxifloxacin in the elderly, the patients at greatest risk for CABP. Solithromycin was non-inferior to moxifloxacin on every pre-specified outcome measure in the study. These results will be presented at the American Thoracic Society (ATS) International Conference 2015 at 9:30 a.m. MDT (11:30 a.m. EDT) today in Denver.
