Urinary Tract Infections Understanding

Urinary Tract Infections: Overview

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a severe public health problem and are caused by a range of pathogens, but most commonly by Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Enterococcus faecalis and Staphylococcus saprophyticus. High recurrence rates and increasing antimicrobial resistance among uropathogens threaten to greatly increase the economic burden of these infections. Clinically, UTIs are categorized as uncomplicated or complicated. Uncomplicated UTIs typically affect individuals who are otherwise healthy and have no structural or neurological urinary tract abnormalities; these infections are differentiated into lower UTIs (cystitis) and upper UTIs (pyelonephritis). Several risk factors are associated with cystitis, including female gender, a prior UTI, sexual activity, vaginal infection, diabetes, obesity and genetic susceptibility. Complicated UTIs are defined as UTIs associated with factors that compromise the urinary tract or host defence, including urinary obstruction, urinary retention caused by neurological disease, immunosuppression, renal failure, renal transplantation, pregnancy and the presence of foreign bodies such as calculi, indwelling catheters or other drainage devices. The treatment has varied historically from 3 days to 6 weeks. There are excellent cure rates with “mini-dose therapy” which involves three days of treatment. The FDA has approved fosfomycin as a single-dose therapy for uncomplicated UTIs caused by E coli. Adjunctive therapy with phenazopyridine for several days may help provide additional symptom relief.

Report Highlights
  • In January 2022, Spero Therapeutics announced that the US FDA has accepted for Priority Review the New Drug Application for tebipenem HBr (tebipenem pivoxil hydrobromide) for the treatment of adults with complicated urinary tract infections (cUTI), including pyelonephritis, caused by susceptible microorganisms.
  • In May 2022, Evofem Biosciences reported post-hoc analysis data from the Phase III AMPOWER clinical trial where Phexxi (lactic acid, citric acid, and potassium bitartrate) was shown to lower urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women.

It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Urinary Tract Infections Emerging Drugs
  • Tebipenem HBr: Spero Therapeutics
Tebipenem HBr is an investigational drug in the United States being developed for the treatment of complicated urinary tract infection, including pyelonephritis, caused by certain microorganisms, in adult patients who have limited oral treatment options. Tebipenem HBr has been granted Qualified Infectious Disease Product (QIDP), Fast Track and Priority Review designations for treatment of complicated urinary tract infection (cUTI), including acute pyelonephritis. The FDA set a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) target action date for June 27, 2022. In March 2022, Spero announced that as part of the FDA’s ongoing review of Spero’s NDA for tebipenem HBr, the FDA had identified deficiencies that precluded the discussion of labeling and post-marketing requirements/commitments at such time. Spero’s LCM with the FDA was in late April 2022.
  • Sulopenem etzadroxil: Iterum Therapeutics
Sulopenem is an orally bioavailable, broad-spectrum penem β-lactam antibiotic which is being developed for the treatment of infections caused by multi-drug resistant bacteria. Sulopenem can, however, be administered orally (e.g as a tablet) or by intravenous (IV) infusion. This makes it an attractive option for the treatment of patients with uncomplicated and complicated urinary tract infections (UTI) and complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAI) caused by susceptible organisms. The IV formulation is intended for the initial treatment of severe infections in a hospital setting, and the oral prodrug will provide the option for IV-to-oral switch, thereby potentially minimizing in-hospital patient stay. The oral prodrug is also intended for the treatment of uncomplicated infections where a patient can tolerate an oral drug in an outpatient setting. The development approach for sulopenem includes its evaluation for the treatment of uUTI, cUTI and cIAI. Qualified Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) designation was granted by the U.S. FDA for both intravenous and oral formulations in the treatment of complicated urinary tract infections (cUTI), uncomplicated urinary tract infections (uUTI) as well as complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAI).

In September 2021, Company held a Type A meeting with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) during the third quarter of 2021 to discuss the steps required for potential resubmission of the New Drug Application (NDA) for sulopenem etzadroxil/probenecid (oral sulopenem) for the treatment of uncomplicated urinary tract infections (uUTI). In July 2021, the Company announced that it had received a Complete Response Letter (CRL) from the FDA requesting additional data to support approval of oral sulopenem for the treatment of adult women with a uUTI. Based on the current operating plan and subject to final determination of the design and planned conduct of additional clinical and potential nonclinical development for sulopenem, the Company believes that it is well positioned financially to fund its operations into the second half of 2023.
  • Gepotidacin: GlaxoSmithKline
Gepotidacin (GSK2140944) is the first in a new class of antibiotics, called triazaacenaphthylene topoisomerase inhibitors, developed at GSK in 2007 with a novel “dual targeting” mechanism of action (MOA) and oral formulation. Its MOA is distinct from any currently approved antibiotic. Gepotidacin works by selectively interacting with two key bacterial enzymes, DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV (type II topoisomerases), responsible for bacterial replication. The novel MOA confers activity against most target pathogens resistant to established antibiotics, including fluoroquinolones. GlaxoSmithKline is conducting a phase III clinical programme investigating gepotidacin, the first in a new chemical class of antibiotics called triazaacenaphthylene bacterial topoisomerase inhibitors, in patients with uncomplicated urinary tract infection (uUTI, also known as acute cystitis) and urogenital gonorrhoea (GC).
  • Cefepime-taniborbactam: Venatorx Pharmaceuticals
Cefepime-taniborbactam is Venatorx’s beta-lactam / beta-lactamase inhibitor (BL/BLI) combination antibiotic that is being developed for the treatment of complicated urinary tract infections (cUTIs) and hospital-acquired bacterial pneumonia and ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia (HABP/VABP).

Cefepime, a fourth-generation cephalosporin, is a widely used beta-lactam (BL) antibiotic with more than two decades of proven safety and clinical utility against susceptible gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. Taniborbactam is a beta-lactamase inhibitor (BLI) that, in combination with cefepime, may offer a potential treatment option for patients with serious bacterial infections caused by difficult-to-treat drug resistant gram-negative bacteria, most notably carbapenem-resistant Enterobacterales (CRE) and carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (CRPA). Many of these organisms are also multidrug-resistant (MDR), further limiting treatment options. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted cefepime-taniborbactam Qualified Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) and Fast Track designations for the treatment of cUTI and HABP/VABP. The FDA and the EMA approved Venatorx’s initial Pediatric Study Plan (iPSP) and Pediatric Investigation Plan (PIP), respectively, for cefepime-taniborbactam. In a Phase III clinical trial Cefepime-taniborbactam met the primary efficacy endpoint of statistical noninferiority (NI) to meropenem in the microITT population at TOC with composite microbiologic and clinical success occurring in 70.0% of cefepime-taniborbactam treated patients and 58.0% of meropenem treated patients (treatment difference 11.9; 95% confidence interval (CI), 2.4, 21.6).
