“Dalton is privileged to be supporting this critical GMP campaign, and to play an important role in the development of this innovative antibiotic for the treatment of lung infections that affect millions of patients,” said Peter Pekos, CEO and President.

In support of Arch Biopartners’ GMP manufacturing campaign for AB569, the company’s inhalation drug candidate for treating antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections in the lungs, Dalton will provide formulation development, cGMP powder and liquid filling, analytical method development and validation, and quality control release testing.

Dalton will be responsible for the GMP preparation and filling of AB569 into glass vials which will form part of the clinical kits required to support the phase I safety trial for AB569 at the Cincinnati Veterans Affairs Medical Center later this year.

AB569 is an innovative drug candidate for antibiotic-resistant bacterial lung infections, which frequently afflict patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis (CF). COPD is a major health problem worldwide (over 325 million patients) and is ranked by the World Health Organization as the third leading cause of death.

Arch Biopartners has received orphan drug designation for AB569 from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treatment of CF patients with Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections, and an orphan medicinal product designation from the European Medicines Agency for the treatment of CF patients.

“Dalton is privileged to be supporting this critical GMP campaign, and to play an important role in the development of this innovative antibiotic for the treatment of lung infections that affect millions of patients,” said Peter Pekos, CEO and President, Dalton Pharma Services. “The need for a new, effective treatment is very great; some pulmonary bacterial infections are resistant to all 26 antibiotics approved in the United States.”
