Medimetriks Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Submits a New Drug Application to FDA for Ozenoxacin Cream, 1%, a Novel Impetigo Treatment 

FAIRFIELD, NJ – June 27, 2016 – Medimetriks Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced today that it has submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking approval of ozenoxacin cream, 1%, a novel, non-fluorinated quinolone for the treatment of impetigo. Medimetriks licensed exclusive U.S. commercialization rights to ozenoxacin from Ferrer, a leading, privately held Spanish pharmaceutical company, in March 2014 and announced the completion of the second successful Phase 3 pivotal trial in July 2015.

Both Phase 3 pivotal studies demonstrated the superiority of ozenoxacin cream, 1%, applied topically twice daily for 5 days, versus placebo on both the clinical and bacteriological endpoints. In the studies, ozenoxacin demonstrated superior bacteriological cure compared to placebo as early as visit 2 (day 3-4), and showed excellent antibacterial activity against a broad range of bacteria. The studies demonstrated that ozenoxacin was safe and well tolerated in both the adult and pediatric populations aged 2 months and older. Read More
