Bacterial infections focussed Nabriva Therapeutics has appointed Francesco Maria Lavino as its chief commercial officer ahead of the group’s phase III clinical trial for lefamulin - a potential new treatment for community-acquired bacterial pneumonia.

Lavino joins the Austrian clinical-stage biopharma firm from Merck & Co (MSD), bringing nearly two decades of pharmaceutical sales and marketing experience with expertise in anti-infective medications.

He said: “Nabriva Therapeutics is poised to introduce what is potentially the first new class of antibiotics for systemic human use in nearly two decades.
