NovaBiotics, the clinical-stage anti-infectives biotechnology company, will be presenting five posters/e-posters and speaking at the at the 27th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases’ (ECCMID) Pipeline Corner symposium. The team, led by CEO Dr Deborah O’Neil and accompanied by Daniel Smith, Dr Douglas Fraser-Pitt, Dr Laura Katvars and Dr Derry Mercer, will be presenting an update to NovaBiotics’ Cysteamine and novel modified antimicrobial peptide (AMP) platforms. Pipeline Corner is a symposium for invited innovative companies to provide an overview of their R&D pipelines and present recent advances in early-stage programmes.
Dr Deborah O’Neil said “NovaBiotics is on the front line of discovery and development of novel solutions for the global antimicrobial resistance pandemic. We have developed two unique platforms which leverage the immune system’s innate defence mechanisms. Product candidates from both platforms are already in advanced stages of clinical development. Our unique technological approach has significant potential and I look forward to sharing developments with colleagues and peers at ECCMID 2017”.
The presentation, which will take place on Sunday 23 April at 12:30PM in Foyer E, will provide an overview of the platforms and review potential demonstrated in development thus far. A link to the presentation can be found here. NovaBiotics Presentation April 2017
