Cempra Inc was formed as Cempra Holdings, LLC, a limited liability company under the laws of the State of Delaware, on May 16, 2008. Cempra Holdings, LLC was formed in connection with a reorganization whereby the stockholders of Cempra Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a corporation formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on November 18, 2005, exchanged their shares of Cempra Pharmaceuticals, Inc. stock for shares of Cempra Holdings, LLC, pursuant to a merger of a subsidiary of Cempra Holdings LLC with and into Cempra Pharmaceuticals, Inc., as a result of which Cempra Pharmaceuticals, Inc. became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cempra Holdings, LLC.. The company is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on developing antibiotics to meet critical unmet medical needs in the treatment of bacterial infectious diseases, particularly respiratory tract infections and skin and skin structure infections. Its program is CEM-101, which the company is developing in intravenous, or IV, and oral formulations for the treatment of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia, or CABP. The company is recently completed a successful Phase 2 clinical trial in which the oral formulation of CEM-101 demonstrated comparable efficacy to the current standard of care, levofloxacin (commonly marketed as LevaquinTM), with an improved safety profile. Its second program is Taksta, which is developing in the U.S. as an oral treatment for acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections, or ABSSSI, frequently caused by Staphylococcus aureus, or S. aureus, including methicillin-resistant S. aureus, or MRSA, and beta-hemolytic streptococci. Taksta has successfully completed a Phase 2 clinical trial showing comparable efficacy and safety to linezolid (sold under the brand name Zyvox), the only oral antibiotic for treatment of MRSA approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA. It expects to initiate pivotal Phase 3 trials for both programs in 2012. Its primary product includes CEM-101: The company is developing CEM-101, a fourth generation macrolide, to treat respiratory tract infections, including CABP and other serious infections; Taksta (Fusidic Acid): Taksta, its fusidic acid product candidate, is an oral antibiotic that company is developing in the U.S. for the treatment of ABSSSI, which is frequently caused by S. aureus, including MRSA, and beta-hemolytic streptococci. Fusidic acid is the only member of a unique class of antibiotics, called fusidanes, and has a mechanism of action that differs from any other antibiotic. It does not own or operate manufacturing facilities for the production of CEM-101, Taksta or other product candidates that might develop, nor do it has plans to develop own manufacturing operations in the foreseeable future. It is currently depend on third-party contract manufacturers for all of its required raw materials, API and finished products for its pre-clinical research and clinical trials.
