Paratek Pharmaceuticals presents multiple sclerosis data at Society for Neuroscience annual meeting

l research community has long regarded a pill for MS as an ultimate goal, but so far attempts to develop a safe, feasible, orally available drug candidate have failed. Our team has successfully modified the tetracycline molecule, keeping the core structure that confers anti-MS activity while removing portions of the molecule with antibacterial effects. This represents an exciting advance not only for MS, but potentially for many other inflammation-related disease areas. "

Dr. Michael Draper, Associate Director at Paratek, stated, "Paratek has developed world-class expertise in modifying the tetracycline class, which has a 30-year track record in the marketplace and a favorable, well-documented safety profile. This new, proprietary class of non-antibacterial tetracycline compounds will avoid the negative consequences associated with long-term antibiotic use and will not further contribute to the development of antibiotic resistance. We believe that these highly active, orally available compounds will also prove to be well-tolerated for MS, and we are very proud of this accomplishment."
