  2. -- NUZYRA® (omadacycline) Generated Net Product Revenue of $10.9 Million in the Third Quarter 2020; a 35% Increase Over the Prior Quarter

    -- Omadacycline Added to the FDA's Essential Medicines List as a Medical Counter Measure Against Biological Threats 

    BOSTON, Nov. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Paratek Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:PRTK), a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel life-saving therapies for life-threatening diseases or other public health threats for civilian, government and military use, today reported financial results and provided an update on corporate activities for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.



    "We continue to execute against our plan for NUZYRA, which is reflected in the third quarter net revenue growth of 35% over the prior quarter," said Evan Loh, M.D., Chief Executive Officer. "Our launch trajectory continues to show NUZYRA is meaningfully outperforming other recent antibiotic launches, which we believe reflects the clinical importance of NUZYRA's oral dosing flexibility. We are particularly pleased with this revenue growth despite an environment that saw a continued downturn in overall broad-spectrum antibiotic utilization of approximately 18% versus the same period in the prior year. NUZYRA is making a real difference in the lives of patients, and prescribers recognize that NUZYRA is an important life-saving antibiotic that addresses current and future needs in the face of the growing global threat from antibiotic resistance."



    Third Quarter 2020 NUZYRA Commercial Highlights and Update

    • NUZYRA generated $10.9 million in net revenue in the third quarter of 2020, a 35% increase over the prior quarter and a 252% increase over the third quarter of 2019.
    • NUZYRA revenue growth reflects continued commitment to strong execution and NUZYRA's attributes that address unmet needs in the marketplace despite the reductions in patient traffic to physician offices and institutions of approximately 25% compared to pre-COVID-19 levels. In today's COVID-19 environment, NUZYRA's ability to minimize hospital stays with the oral formulation is especially relevant for many prescribers and a potentially meaningful benefit for patients.

    Other Recent Highlights

    • The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) review of the pre-Emergency Use Authorization (pre-EUA) application, which was submitted in February, remains ongoing. As part of the ongoing review, the supplemental mouse pharmacokinetic data requested by FDA are in the final stages of publishing at BARDA and will be submitted to FDA imminently. Based on agency discussions, we believe FDA will complete their review in a timely fashion.
    • Seven posters from the NUZYRA clinical and microbiology programs were presented at the IDWeek 2020 virtual meeting in October 2020.

    ° In a multicenter real-world study evaluating NUZYRA, the authors concluded that NUZYRA was effective and well-tolerated in this small sample for a variety of infections, including pulmonary M. abscessus (11 patients; average treatment duration 6.4 months) and MDR/XDR A. baumannii and Enterobacteriaceae (7 patients; average duration 14 days). These data continue to reinforce the importance of additional studies to expand these encouraging clinical findings.

    ° Additional data presented also highlighted that the substitution of NUZYRA in place of standard of care, such as quinolones, for the treatment of patients with Community-Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia (CABP), has the potential to reduce Clostridioides difficile infection and deliver cost savings in the acute care setting.

    Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results



    Total revenue was $13.7 million for the third quarter of 2020, an increase of 47% versus the prior quarter and 251% versus the same quarter in the prior year.

    • U.S. NUZYRA net revenue of $10.9 million for the third quarter of 2020 grew 35% versus the prior quarter and 252% versus the same quarter in the prior year.
    • Government contract service and grant revenue was $2.7 million for the third quarter of 2020 versus $0.9 million in the prior quarter. No revenue was generated from the BARDA contract in 2019.

    Research and development (R&D) expenses were $6.7 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $8.4 million for same period in the prior year. The $1.7 million decrease is primarily the result of lower clinical study costs associated with completion of the Phase 2 UTI program in 2019, partially offset by an increase in costs incurred under the BARDA contract and third-party manufacturing scale-up costs.



    Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $20.9 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $23.6 million for the same period in the prior year.  The $2.7 million decrease is primarily the result of lower personnel-related costs and a reduction in sales and marketing costs due to COVID-19.



    Paratek reported a net loss of $20.9 million, or ($0.46) per share, for the third quarter of 2020, compared to a net loss of $32.6 million, or ($1.00) per share, for the same period in 2019.



    Financial Guidance 

    Paratek now anticipates its full year 2020 total revenue to be at the higher end of the previously communicated range of $78 to $83 million driven by strong NUZYRA net revenue trends.

    • This revenue guidance assumes that the initial BARDA procurement of NUZYRA, valued at approximately $38 million, will occur by the end of 2020. The FDA review could be completed as early as the end of this year but may slip into the first quarter of 2021. The first procurement is expected soon after completion of the FDA review. Accordingly, revenue from the first procurement will be recognized as early as late 2020 or in the first quarter of 2021.
    • 2020 R&D and SG&A expenses are now expected to be approximately $120 million compared to the prior guidance of $135 million, driven by a continued focus on operational efficiencies, and the timing of certain expenses driven by the COVID-19 pandemic, some of which will now occur in 2021.  
    • Based upon our current operating plan, which includes estimated NUZYRA U.S. product revenue, BARDA procurements of NUZYRA for the SNS, and cost reimbursement under the BARDA contract, we anticipate that our existing cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $149.5 million, as of September 30, 2020, will provide for a cash runway through the end of 2023 with a pathway to cash flow break even.   This anticipated pathway assumes the Company will be able to fund all company operating expenses, anticipated capital expenditures, and debt service, including repayment in full of the Hercules Loan and Security Agreement.

    Company performance and unanticipated events could cause actual results to vary from this forward-looking guidance.

    About NUZYRA

    NUZYRA® (omadacycline) is a novel antibiotic with both once-daily oral and intravenous (IV) formulations for the treatment of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP) and acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI). A modernized tetracycline, NUZYRA is specifically designed to overcome tetracycline resistance and exhibits activity across a spectrum of bacteria, including Gram-positive, Gram-negative, atypicals, and other drug-resistant strains.

     

    Indications and Usage

    NUZYRA is a tetracycline class antibacterial indicated for the treatment of adult patients with the following infections caused by susceptible microorganisms:

     

    Community-Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia (CABP) caused by the following: Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus (methicillin-susceptible isolates), Haemophilus influenzae, Haemophilus parainfluenzae, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Legionella pneumophila, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, and Chlamydophila pneumoniae.

    Acute Bacterial Skin and Skin Structure Infections (ABSSSI) caused by the following: Staphylococcus aureus (methicillin-susceptible and -resistant isolates), Staphylococcus lugdunensis, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus anginosus grp. (includes S. anginosus, S. intermedius, and S. constellatus), Enterococcus faecalis, Enterobacter cloacae, and Klebsiella pneumoniae. 

    Usage

    To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of NUZYRA and other antibacterial drugs, NUZYRA should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria.

    Important Safety Information

    Contraindications

    NUZYRA is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to omadacycline or tetracycline class antibacterial drugs, or to any of the excipients.

    Warnings and Precautions

    Mortality imbalance was observed in the CABP clinical trial with eight deaths (2%) occurring in patients treated with NUZYRA compared to four deaths (1%) in patients treated with moxifloxacin. The cause of the mortality imbalance has not been established. All deaths, in both treatment arms, occurred in patients > 65 years of age; most patients had multiple comorbidities. The causes of death varied and included worsening and/or complications of infection and underlying conditions. Closely monitor clinical response to therapy in CABP patients, particularly in those at higher risk for mortality.



    The use of NUZYRA during tooth development (last half of pregnancy, infancy and childhood to the age of eight years) may cause permanent discoloration of the teeth (yellow-gray-brown) and enamel hypoplasia.



    The use of NUZYRA during the second and third trimester of pregnancy, infancy and childhood up to the age of eight years may cause reversible inhibition of bone growth.

    Hypersensitivity reactions have been reported with NUZYRA. Life-threatening hypersensitivity (anaphylactic) reactions have been reported with other tetracycline-class antibacterial drugs. NUZYRA is structurally similar to other tetracycline-class antibacterial drugs and is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to tetracycline-class antibacterial drugs. Discontinue NUZYRA if an allergic reaction occurs.

    Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea (CDAD) has been reported with use of nearly all antibacterial agents and may range in severity from mild diarrhea to fatal colitis. Evaluate if diarrhea occurs.

    NUZYRA is structurally similar to tetracycline-class of antibacterial drugs and may have similar adverse reactions. Adverse reactions including photosensitivity, pseudotumor cerebri, and anti-anabolic action which has led to increased BUN, azotemia, acidosis, hyperphosphatemia, pancreatitis, and abnormal liver function tests, have been reported for other tetracycline-class antibacterial drugs, and may occur with NUZYRA. Discontinue NUZYRA if any of these adverse reactions are suspected.



    Prescribing NUZYRA in the absence of a proven or strongly suspected bacterial infection is unlikely to provide benefit to the patient and increases the risk of the development of drug-resistant bacteria.



    Adverse Reactions

    The most common adverse reactions (incidence ≥2%) are nausea, vomiting, infusion site reactions, alanine aminotransferase increased, aspartate aminotransferase increased, gamma-glutamyl transferase increased, hypertension, headache, diarrhea, insomnia, and constipation.



    Drug Interactions

    Patients who are on anticoagulant therapy may require downward adjustment of their anticoagulant dosage while taking NUZYRA.



    Absorption of tetracyclines, including NUZYRA is impaired by antacids containing aluminum, calcium, or magnesium, bismuth subsalicylate and iron containing preparations.



    Use in Specific Populations

    Lactation: Breastfeeding is not recommended during treatment with NUZYRA.



    To report SUSPECTED ADVERSE REACTIONS, contact Paratek Pharmaceuticals, Inc. at 1-833-727-2835 or FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch.

    -- Company Strengthens Long-term Cash Position through Amendment to Hercules Loan Agreement

    BOSTON, Aug. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Paratek Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:PRTK), a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel life-saving therapies for life-threatening diseases or other public health threats for civilian, government and military use, today reported financial results and provided an update on corporate activities for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

    "Demand for NUZYRA was strong in the first half of 2020 with the momentum continuing into the third quarter," said Evan Loh, M.D., Chief Executive Officer. "I am particularly pleased that these results were achieved despite a healthcare environment where the unprecedented global pandemic temporarily closed many healthcare practices and eliminated essentially all face to face access for our sales representatives. Our results reinforce our continued belief and confidence that NUZYRA is well-positioned to help address current and future unmet medical needs at a time when antibiotic resistance is a growing global threat."

    "BARDA and Paratek continue to effectively execute on the anthrax development program and U.S. onshoring activities for NUZYRA," Dr. Loh continued.  "The FDA review of the pre-EUA application remains ongoing and BARDA continues to be fully committed to procuring NUZYRA for the Strategic National Stockpile once the FDA review process is completed.  We appreciate BARDA's confidence in Paratek and their significant investment in this innovative, long-term public-private partnership for the development of NUZYRA in the fight against bioterrorism and antimicrobial resistance in order to save lives and protect Americans."

    Recent NUZYRA Commercial Highlights

    • NUZYRA generated $8.1 million in net revenue in the second quarter of 2020, an 11% increase over the prior quarter and 378% increase over the second quarter of 2019. NUZYRA revenue growth continues to validate the Company's initial launch strategy with 90% of demand being generated from hospitals and adjacent sites of care.

    Other Highlights

    • The initial NUZYRA procurement by Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) for the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) valued at approximately $38 million is now anticipated to be secured by year end 2020.

    ° The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) review of the pre-Emergency Use Authorization (pre-EUA) application, which was submitted in February, remains ongoing. The Company believes the review was delayed due to internal resourcing at FDA caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and other review priorities at FDA unrelated to NUZYRA.  As part of the ongoing review, FDA has requested supplemental mouse pharmacokinetic data to support the human dose recommendation in case of an immediate anthrax outbreak. This work has been initiated and expected to be completed in 8 to 10 weeks.

    • In July 2020, the supplemental NDA to support an oral-only dosing label for Community-Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia (CABP) was submitted to FDA with an approval expected during the 2020-2021 pneumonia season.   
    • In August 2020, Paratek modified its outstanding loan agreement with Hercules Capital. 

    ° Under the terms of the agreement, Paratek repaid $10 million of the principal $70 million loan balance reducing the outstanding loan to $60 million. 

    ° The interest-only period under the new loan agreement is now extended through December 2021, with further extension of the interest-only period of up to an additional 12 months, contingent on Paratek achieving certain performance-based milestones.

    Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

    Paratek reported a net loss of $23.1 million, or ($0.53) per share, for the second quarter of 2020, compared to a net loss of $33.2 million, or ($1.02) per share, for the same period in 2019.

    Total revenue was $9.3 million for the second quarter of 2020, an increase of 18% versus the prior quarter and 356% versus the same quarter in the prior year. 

    • U.S. NUZYRA net revenue of $8.1 million for the second quarter of 2020 grew 11% versus the prior quarter and 378% versus the same quarter in the prior year.
    • Government contract service and grant revenue was $0.9 million for the second quarter of 2020 versus $0.3 million in the prior quarter.  No revenue was generated from the BARDA contract in 2019.
    • Second quarter 2020 collaboration and royalty revenue was $0.3 million, which is consistent with both the prior quarter and the same quarter in prior year. 

    Research and development (R&D) expenses were $4.6 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $10.7 million for the second quarter of 2019. The $6.1 million decrease is primarily the result of lower personnel-related costs, lower clinical study costs associated with our Phase 2 UTI program and other operational efficiencies.

    Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $21.0 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $20.9 million for the second quarter of 2019. 

    As of June 30, 2020, Paratek had $186.8 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities. 

    Financial Guidance

    Paratek is raising its full year 2020 revenue guidance primarily based on the stronger than anticipated U.S. NUZYRA net product revenue modestly offset by lower than anticipated royalty revenue from SEYSARA.

    • Paratek now estimates 2020 total revenue to be between $78 and $83 million, an increase from our prior guidance of $75 and $80 million. 

    ° The Company now anticipates the initial BARDA procurement of 2,500 anthrax treatment courses valued at approximately $38 million to occur by the end of 2020 contingent on the completion of the pre-EUA application review by FDA.

    • 2020 R&D and SG&A expense is now expected to be approximately $135 million compared to the prior guidance of $140 million, driven by an increased focus on operational efficiencies and other favorability driven by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Excluding the BARDA R&D and onshoring cost reimbursement, R&D and SG&A expense is expected to be modestly lower when compared to 2019.

    ° Based upon our current operating plan, which includes estimated NUZYRA U.S. product revenue and cost reimbursement under the BARDA contract, we anticipate that our existing cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $186.8 million, as of June 30, 2020, provide for a cash runway through the end of 2023 with a pathway to cash flow break even. This anticipated pathway assumes the Company will be able to fund all company operating expenses, anticipated capital expenditures, and debt service, including repayment in full of the Hercules Loan and Security Agreement.

    Company performance and unanticipated events could cause actual results to vary from this forward-looking guidance.
