Dublin, Dec. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Complicated Urinary Tract Infections- Pipeline Insight, 2020" drug pipelines has been added to's offering.

This report provides comprehensive insights about 10+ companies and 10+ pipeline drugs in Complicated Urinary Tract Infections pipeline landscape. It covers the pipeline drug profiles, including clinical and nonclinical stage products. It also covers the therapeutics assessment by product type, stage, route of administration, and molecule type. It further highlights the inactive pipeline products in this space.

Urinary tract infections (UTI) are the most common bacterial infections involving lower (cystitis, prostatitis) or upper (pyelonephritis, renal abscess, perinephric abscess) urinary tract. Differentiation of complicated and uncomplicated UTI is usually based on the presence of structural or functional urinary tract abnormalities, which can increase the risk of treatment failure and development of serious complications. Factors that increase the risk are foreign bodies, stones, obstruction, neurogenic bladder, kidney transplantation, immunosuppression, and pregnancy. Complicated UTI includes a spectrum of conditions that increase the risk of treatment failure, as well as of serious complications such as bacteremia and sepsis, perinephric abscess, renal impairment and emphysematous pyelonephritis.


The symptoms of complicated urinary tract infections include:

  • Increased urinary frequency

  • Urgency

  • Hematuria

  • Dysuria

  • Suprapubic or flank pain


A good quality urine specimen is vital in making the diagnosis. However, treatment must not be delayed if the clinical scenario is strongly suggestive of a urinary tract infection. Blood cultures are also useful in more severe septic presentations. A positive blood culture can sometimes also help corroborate a urine sample result and reduce the suspicion of contamination. Ultrasound and CT scans may sometimes be useful or even critical for diagnosing perinephric abscess, urinary retention, hydronephrosis and obstructive pyelonephritis from stones in septic patients. All patients who fail to respond to appropriate broad-spectrum antibiotics should undergo imaging to exclude complications such as abscesses, urinary retention, calculi, gas, obstructive uropathy and hydronephrosis.


Resuscitation often precedes definitive treatment. The severely septic patient might need aggressive fluid resuscitation as well as broad-spectrum antibiotics administered in the emergency department. Antibiotic choice should always be according to local guidelines. Patients presenting with septic shock may not respond to fluid resuscitation alone, and there should be a low threshold to consider vasopressor support in light of a poor initial response to fluids.

Broad-spectrum, empiric antibiotics should always be switched to a targeted narrow-spectrum antibiotic, if possible, once culture results are available. Prophylactic antibiotics are seldom recommended due to rapid bacterial resistance patterns developing. When the clinical situation requires prophylaxis, nitrofurantoin is usually the preferred agent. Patients with permanent Foley catheters or suprapubic tubes should avoid prophylactic antibiotics and should only be treated when symptomatic. More frequent changes of urinary catheters is recommended in chronically cahteterized patients with recurrent infections.

Complicated Urinary Tract Infections Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Complicated Urinary Tract Infections report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery.

Complicated Urinary Tract Infections Emerging Drugs

Tebipenem Pivoxil Hydrobromide: Spero Therapeutics

Tebipenem Pivoxil Hydrobromide is an oral carbapenem which acts as cell wall inhibitors. In September 2020, tebipenem HBr completed a pivotal Phase 3 trial, ADAPT-PO, for the treatment of complicated urinary tract infections (cUTI), including acute pyelonephritis (AP). If approved, tebipenem HBr would be the first oral carbapenem antimicrobial to receive marketing approval in the United States. Tebipenem HBr has been granted Qualified Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) and Fast Track designations by the FDA for the treatment of cUTI and AP.

Sulopenem: Iterum Therapeutics

Sulopenem, a novel penem anti-infective compound with oral and IV formulations is being developed for the treatment of complicated urinary tract infections has cpmleted the pivotal phase 3 trail. The FDA has granted Special Protocol Agreements (SPA) and Qualified Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) designations for oral and IV sulopenem in accordance with the Generating Antibiotics Incentives Now (GAIN) Act, which allow for five years of additional regulatory exclusivity and expedited Fast Track FDA review.
