- Announced positive top-line results from IGNITE4, the Company's phase 3 clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of twice-daily intravenous (IV) eravacycline compared to meropenem for the treatment of patients with complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAI).

- Presented data at ASM Microbe 2017 including additional supportive data generated for eravacycline demonstrating consistent potency against drug-resistant bacteria in ongoing global surveillance studies and positive data from phase 1 single-ascending dose studies for its two pipeline programs, TP-6076 and TP-271.
- Successfully completed a public offering of 10,000,000 shares of common stock with gross proceeds totaling $65 million.
