SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Achaogen, Inc. (NASDAQ:AKAO), a late-stage biopharmaceutical company developing innovative antibacterials addressing multi-drug resistant (MDR) gram-negative infections, today announced that the Antimicrobial Drugs Advisory Committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has planned a meeting to review the Company's New Drug Application (NDA) for plazomicin for the treatment of complicated urinary tract infections (cUTI), including pyelonephritis, and bloodstream infections (BSI) due to certain Enterobacteriaceae in patients who have limited or no alternative treatment option.
As we wait for the much anticipated (and highly strenuous) data from Marinus (MRNS) we shouldn't forget that Cidara (CDTX) still has data to come out - reportedly by the end of this month (we previously anticipated much earlier). Cidara's price has behaved much more stably than Marinus, and we see this as a good sign - the market for buyers and sellers is relatively even and nobody is playing games with the stock (intentional or not).
