Citius Pharmaceuticals achieves chemical manufacturing and control milestones for Mino-Lok

Citius Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a speciality pharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing critical care drug products, today announced that it has achieved a number of significant milestones over the past several weeks for Mino-Lok.

Mino-Lok is an antibiotic lock solution being developed as adjunctive therapy for patients with central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) or catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs). Mino-Lok contains three active drug substances (minocycline, ethanol and EDTA) which are combined into two vials, MLT01 (minocycline) and MLT02 (ethanol and EDTA). Citius has manufactured three registration lots of Mino-Lok using the commercial manufacturing process, which will be filed in the planned New Drug Application (NDA). Citius has placed all registration lots on stability at the appropriate ICH (The International Council for Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use) conditions to support the NDA filing. Citius has also developed a new exclusive synthesis process for disodium edetate ("EDTA"), a chelating agent which supplants heparin as the anti-clotting agent in Mino-Lok.

NDAs are applications to request permission to market a drug product in the U.S. for a specific use. Chemistry, manufacturing, and controls (CMC) information is therefore submitted in the NDA to ensure product quality as it relates to the safety and efficacy of the drug product.

"A typical drug approval contains one drug substance, so for all practical purposes, our team has developed three products. Mino-Lok is unique in many ways, this being one of them," said Myron Holubiak, Chief Executive Officer of Citius. "It's important to know that we expect to be prepared to immediately move to validation/commercial manufacturing upon the completion of our Phase 3 clinical trial and receiving the required FDA clearance."

Citius is a late-stage speciality pharmaceutical company dedicated to the development and commercialization of critical care products, with a focus on anti-infectives and cancer care.
