GSK experience suggests traditional antibacterial drug development has a much lower success rate than other therapeutic areas. Comparing these areas, one striking difference is the size of the dose; antibacterials require much higher doses and typically multiple grams per day. This presentation will share our experience and challenges developing traditional antibiotics and suggest transformational approaches that could help create a strong pipeline to provide much needed new antibiotics.
