Results demonstrated that patients treated with AB103 had a meaningful improvement across multiple end points.
AB103 was granted Fast Track status and Orphan Drug designation from the FDA as well as Orphan Medicinal Product designation from the European Commission.
Pre-clinical research is conducted in the areas of other severe infections and organ injury.
Over $12m were granted for biodefense research by US Army, DARPA and NIAID for the development of therapeutics against a broad family of bacterial toxins, the superantigens.
