Allergan's anti-infective portfolio to be highlighted at IDWeek 2015

Allergan plc (NYSE: ACT) today announced that its infectious disease portfolio will be featured in 13 abstracts highlighting data at IDWeek 2015, which takes place from October 7-11, 2015, in San Diego.

Allergan will present data from studies further evaluating: the burden and characteristics of infections caused by resistant Gram-negative pathogens and the antimicrobial activity of AVYCAZ (ceftazidime and avibactam) against certain Gram-negative isolates; efficacy of a single dose of DALVANCE® (dalbavancin) in the treatment of acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI), the pharmacodynamic activity of DALVANCE and factors influencing admission/re-admission of patients with ABSSSI; the antimicrobial activity of TEFLARO® (ceftaroline fosamil) and outcomes for patients with ABSSSI, community-acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP), hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) and ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) treated with TEFLARO.

"The data presented at IDWeek demonstrates Allergan's commitment to enhancing patient care and outcomes for areas of greatest medical need," said David Melnick, Vice President, Clinical Development, Anti-Infectives, Allergan. "Allergan is committed to providing access to a portfolio of much-needed therapies designed to address the biggest challenges facing the ID community today."
