About Us

Spero Therapeutics (Nasdaq: SPRO) is a multi-asset clinical stage biopharmaceutical company in Cambridge, Mass. We are highly committed to advancing novel treatment approaches for bacterial infections with a world-class team of biotechnological and biopharmaceutical experts. The company has a pipeline of novel and highly differentiated antibacterial and rare disease product candidates focused on the unmet needs of patients with multi-drug resistant (MDR) bacterial infections. Spero?s lead product candidate, tebipenem HBr (tebipenem pivoxil hydrobromide, formerly SPR994), is designed to be the first oral carbapenem antibiotic for use in adults to treat serious bacterial infections, including those caused by MDR Gram-negative infections. In September 2020, Spero announced positive top-line results from its Phase 3 ADAPT-PO clinical trial of tebipenem HBr in complicated urinary tract infection and acute pyelonephritis. Spero is also advancing SPR720, its oral antimicrobial agent in development for the treatment of nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) pulmonary disease, a rare orphan disease. Spero?s third product candidate, SPR206, is an IV-administered agent being developed as an innovative option to treat MDR Gram-negative bacterial infections.

We sincerely believe that our novel product candidates will have meaningful impact on patient health and significant commercial applications for the treatment of MDR infections in both the hospital and community settings.
