Clinical trial data regarding NKTR-061 will be presented at ATS International Conference

ektars proprietary Aerosol Generator that is designed to rapidly deliver aerosolized antibiotics to the deep lungs, both within and outside of a ventilator system. The result is a potentially faster-acting, potentially more effective treatment modality which provides key advantages over traditional pneumatic or ultra-sonic nebulizer.

ABOUT HOSPITAL-ACQUIRED GRAM-NEGATIVE PNEUMONIA:

Hospital-acquired, gram-negative bacterial pneumonia is a serious problem which afflicts patients even in the worlds most advanced clinical settings. It is most commonly acquired by patients in intensive care units who have been put on ventilators for breathing assistance. Current treatment involves the administration of intensive antibiotics, supplemental oxygen, and intravenous fluids. Some 25-50% of those who acquire gram-negative bacterial pneumonia will die from it.
