Motif BIo chief “very confident” for Phase III iclaprim trial

Graham Lumsden, chief executive of Motif Bio (LON:MTFB), says he is “very confident” in the firm’s Phase III study for its next-generation antibiotic, iclaprim.

The firm passed a major milestone when it dosed its first patient in one of two phase III clinical trials on Wednesday.

Lumsden says it is a “huge accomplishment by the team at Motif,” and “great news for shareholders”.

The studies, which will assess the drug’s potential in treating acute bacterial skin and skin structure infection, will look at efficacy and safety and compare them with the standard treatment vancomycin.
