Summit’s CDI hails “key” patent win in Europe

Drug developer Summit Therapeutics (LON:SUMM) has been awarded a European patent for ridinilazole, its new antibiotic for C.Difficile infection.

Speaking to Proactive, director of corporate communications, Richard Pye, said: “This is a very key development for our ridinilazole antibiotic programme because it means now we have patent protection, not just in Europe, but also the other major commercial markets.”

The next stage, he said, is for the treatment to move into Phase III trials, with two studies, which will look to confirm the previous Phase II proof of concept results.
