Every day, people die of infections that do not respond to antibiotics.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) occurs when micro-organisms such as bacteria mutate after repeated exposure to antimicrobial drugs like antibiotics.

Over the years, excessive use of antibiotic and antiviral therapies has led to a dramatic  increase in AMR. As a result, public concern has stimulated the search for novel non-specific and non-antibiotic antimicrobial agents.

An unmet need in dermal and respiratory diseases:

  • There is no effective treatment for many viral and fungal infections.

  • Significant side effects occur with available anti-fungal medications.

  • Antibiotic overuse leads to increased AMR.
