Scientists from Spain and India Lead an International Project to Develop New Antibiotics Against Gram-Negative Bacteria
8 September 2022
Foundation for Neglected Disease Research (FNDR), ABAC Therapeutics, together with the artificial intelligence (AI) company, Peptris, and with scientific support from Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV), will collaborate in an international project to optimize a new chemical structure that has shown effectiveness against Gram-negative bacteria, the greatest current threat to public health. In recent decades, there has been a significant increase in the incidence of infections caused by the Gram-negative bacteria known as “the four killers”: Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae. The team of researchers intends to identify and optimise molecules that could be progressed to clinical studies within the next two years.
