Bacterial Pneumonia Bacterial pneumonia is an infection in one or both lungs. The bacteria cause the lung's air sacs (alveoli) to become inflamed and engorged with pus, fluid, and cellular debris.
This often impairs the body's ability to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide. Predisposing factors are age, long-term users of immunosuppressant drugs, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients who use inhaled corticosteroids for lengthy periods and smokers. Symptoms include cough with yellow, green, or blood-tinged mucus, headache, muscle pain, breathlessness or rapid breathing, lethargy and confusion.
Bacterial Pneumonia pipeline therapeutics constitutes close to 83 molecules. Out of which approximately 70 molecules are developed by Companies and remaining by the Universities/Institutes. The molecules developed by Companies in Pre-Registration, Phase III, Phase II, Phase I, IND/CTA Filed, Preclinical, Discovery and Unknown stages are 1, 7, 7, 11, 1, 31, 11 and 1 respectively. Similarly, the Universities portfolio in Phase II, Preclinical and Discovery stages comprises 2, 6 and 5 molecules, respectively.
