MGB-BP-3 is the first compound from this platform, with strong activity against Gram-positive pathogens to enter Phase I clinical safety trials to treat CDI orally.
Our technology clearly meets one of the world’s major public health requirements.
MGB Biopharma is on track to be the first developer of a truly novel antibacterial for more than a decade, and is likely to be a beneficiary of the GAIN initiative in the US.
