Trius Therapeutics To Present Data From Drug Development Programs At ICAAC

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ICAAC 2012 -- Trius Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:TSRX) announced today that the results of multiple studies from its drug development programs, including its lead antibiotic drug candidate tedizolid phosphate (TR-701), will be presented in poster and podium presentations at the 52 nd Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) meeting in San Francisco from September 9 to September 12, 2012.

The presentations contain clinical and nonclinical studies of tedizolid, including results from the ESTABLISH 1 trial. This is the first Phase 3 study of tedizolid in patients with acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI). Additional preclinical abstracts include advances in Trius' GyrB/ParE antibacterial program, which targets gram-negative pathogens. This is a class of bacteria rapidly developing resistance to existing antibiotics, and for which there are few new antibacterial agents in development.

The presentations are as follows:
