Company Description Rib-X Pharmaceuticals is a product-driven small molecule drug discovery and development company focused on the structure-based design of new classes of antibiotics. The company’s underlying drug discovery engine capitalizes on its proprietary high-resolution crystal structure of the 50S subunit of the ribosome, which performs an essential role in the fundamental process of protein synthesis.
Proceeds Purposes In early 2011, we will begin a Phase 2b delafloxacin study to validate new objective endpoints for a near-term Phase 3 study and will initiate a long-term preclinical safety study with radezolid to demonstrate its key points of differentiation. We also expect to nominate an initial development candidate with activity against multi-drug resistant Gram-negative bacteria from our R?-04 program in early 2011.
