Notes to Editors

Motif Bio is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, engaged in the research and development of novel antibiotics designed to be effective against serious and life-threatening infections in hospitalized patients caused by multi-drug resistant bacteria. Our lead product candidate, iclaprim, is being developed for the treatment of acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI) and hospital acquired bacterial pneumonia (HABP), including ventilator associated bacterial pneumonia (VABP), which is often caused by MRSA (methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus). We are currently enrolling and dosing patients in two global Phase 3 clinical trials with an intravenous formulation of iclaprim, for the treatment of ABSSSI, which are expected to complete in the second half of 2017.
