- Motif Bio said the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Fast Track designation for iclaprim intravenous (IV) to treat Acute Bacterial Skin and Skin Structure Infections (ABSSSI) and Hospital Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia (HABP).

The FDA's Fast Track programme is designed to aid the development and accelerate the review of new drugs that are intended to treat serious or life-threatening conditions and that demonstrate the potential to address unmet medical needs.

Drugs with Fast Track designation typically qualify for priority review, which expedites the FDA review process and market approval. Companies that receive Fast Track designation for a drug benefit from more frequent interactions with the FDA during clinical development and can submit completed sections of their New Drug Application (NDA) on a rolling basis.
