Seven presentations with data from multiple pipeline candidates including data from Microbiotix's innovative non-antibiotic programs targeting multi-drug resistant priority pathogens
WORCESTER, Massachusetts, June 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Microbiotix, Inc., a clinical stage biotech company focused on the discovery and development of novel drugs that target serious infectious diseases and multi-drug resistant pathogens, announced today that it will make two oral presentations and five poster presentations covering its innovative programs targeting multi-drug resistant priority pathogens at the American Society of Microbiology (ASM) Microbe 2018 Conference, which is taking place June 7-11, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia.
"Microbiotix is dedicated to supporting its pipeline of programs targeting the high unmet need caused by multi-drug resistant priority pathogens," said Terry Bowlin, PhD, President & CEO, Microbiotix. "We believe our innovative portfolio has great potential to help critically ill patients infected with several of today's most serious multi-drug resistant infectious agents."
Data will be presented on Microbiotix's T3SS (type III secretion system) inhibitor project, which was awarded $3.2 million from CARB-X (Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Accelerator) in March 2017. The data will highlight evidence describing the novel molecular target of the Company's inhibitors of Type III Secretion in P. aeruginosa, which are being developed in collaboration with the UK's AMR Centre, a joint private-public initiative to support/accelerate the development of new antibiotics and diagnostics through a fully integrated development capability, offering translational R&D from pre-clinical hits through to clinical proof of concept.
