Exebacase (CF-301), a novel, antistaphylococcal lysin (cell wall hydrolase) is the first agent of this class to enter late-stage clinical development (phase 3, NCT04160468) for the treatment of Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia, including right-sided endocarditis. A multilaboratory Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) M23-defined tier 2 quality control (QC) study was conducted to establish exebacase QC ranges for a new reference broth microdilution method. S. aureus ATCC 29213 and Enterococcus faecalis ATCC 29212 were selected as reference QC strains. Broth microdilution MIC QC ranges for exebacase spanned 4 log2 dilutions and contained 99.2% of the MIC results generated for the two reference strains. The QC ranges for exebacase were defined as 0.25 to 2 μg/ml and 8 to 64 μg/ml against S. aureus ATCC 29213 and E. faecalis ATCC 29212, respectively, and were approved by the CLSI Subcommittee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing. These QC ranges established for use with the reference broth microdilution method developed for exebacase susceptibility testing will ensure the test performance and accuracy of results generated during clinical development.
