Guggenheim analyst, Louise Chen, reiterated her Buy rating on shares of Paratek Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: PRTK) and noted catalysts ahead for the company. PRTK plans to dose the first patient in its oral-only skin study of omadacycline in August. The company recently received affirmation from the FDA on the design of its Phase 3 oral-only ABSSSI study. She expects this study to report top-line data in 2Q17. She estimates omadacycline peak sales of $1B+, which is significantly higher than Street expectations of $100MM+. Unlike other new antibiotics in development, omadacycline can be used in the community in addition to the hospital setting, and accelerated approval of the oral-only indication could mean peak sales being achieved sooner than expected.
