Trius Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative antibiotics for life-threatening infections.
We have successfully completed two Phase 3 clinical trials for Tedizolid Phosphate (TR-701), formerly torezolid phosphate, in ABSSSI. Tedizolid is an IV and orally administered second generation oxazolidinone, for the treatment of serious gram-positive bacterial infections, including those caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). With the continuous increase in bacterial resistance to currently marketed drugs, serious infections are becoming more difficult, if not impossible to treat, and this has led to a clear need for novel therapeutics to treat multi-drug resistant bacterial infections.
Trius is headquartered in San Diego, California. We have built a strong management team with significant development and regulatory experience. Our senior management team consists of nine individuals who collectively have been involved in the development and approval of a significant number of anti-infective drugs.
