Cubist is primarily focused on the antiinfective market place. Cubicin® (daptomycin for injection), the company’s flagship drug, was approved on September 12, 2003, by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, for sale in the United States. CUBICIN is approved for the treatment of complicated skin and skin structure infections (cSSSI) caused by specific Gram-positive bacteria.
