  • 2. WBB Securities analysts commented, "We believe there is a critical need for novel antibiotics. Based on the clinical data provided through Phase 3 studies REVIVE-1 and REVIVE-2, iclaprim has a high probability of obtaining FDA approval. However, success for MTFB is not just manifest through clinical proof, but also through negotiating the vagaries of reimbursement, gaining clinician acceptance, hospital inclusion and inclusion in the overall patient care paradigm.
