Description of Business
We are a global biopharmaceutical company currently focused on commercializing our antibiotic product DIFICID� (fidaxomicin) tablets in the United States and Canada, and developing other fidaxomicin products in the United States and worldwide, both by ourselves and with our partners and licensees. DIFICID, a macrolide antibacterial drug, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, on May 27, 2011, for the treatment of Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea, or CDAD, in adults 18 years of age and older. CDAD is the most common symptom of Clostridium difficile infection, or CDI. We market DIFICID in the United States through our own sales force and through our co-promotion agreement with Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Inc., or Cubist. We continue to pursue regulatory approval for, and commercialization of, fidaxomicin in other geographies outside the United States and Canada through various collaboration partners.
