  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Achaogen, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company. It is focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of novel antibacterials to treat multi-drug resistant, or MDR, gram-negative infections. The Company is developing plazomicin, its lead product candidate, for the treatment of serious bacterial infections due to MDR enterobacteriaceae, including carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae. Achaogen, Inc. is headquartered in South San Francisco, California. " (4/26/2019)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Achaogen hosted a 4Q18 conference call yesterday to provide a corporate update. Zemdri sales were $0.5M, consistent w/ pre-announced $0.45-0.5M. Mgmt implemented another corporate restructure in Feb 2019 to conserve resources. Sales force and MSL group has been scaled back to only a few personnel who will focus on a modest number of existing accounts. The move is expected to reduce cash burn to $15-17M in 2Q19, pushing runway to Jun 2019. Mgmt continues to examine strategic options, although no details provided. Zemdri is still used primarily in outpatient setting. Given small commercial infrastructure, it seems unlikely the drug will meaningfully penetrate the inpatient hospital setting even as hospitals gradually add the drug to formulary." (3/29/2019)
