Lynne Parshall, Chief Operating Officer at Isis, said, "By working with partners like Xenon, who are highly innovative and dedicated to a therapeutic area, we are able to expand the breadth of our antisense drug pipeline while staying focused on our internal drug discovery and development activities."

Trius Therapeutics Inc. Research Report

On June 12, 2013, Trius Therapeutics Inc. (Trius Therapeutics) announced the publication of the results from multiple clinical and animal studies showing that the Company's experimental antibiotic, tedizolid phosphate (TR-701), does not interact with monamine oxidase (MAO). The results were published in the July 2013 (Volume 57 Number 7) print issue of Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy. According to Trius Therapeutics, the findings suggest that, if approved, tedizolid could potentially be taken with commonly prescribed medicines such as many antidepressants, whose use is limited with agents that inhibit MAO. The Company will include these results in its new drug application (NDA) for tedizolid for the treatment of acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI), which it plans to file in the second half of 2013.
