Project TitleHybrid antibiotic active against MDR and XDR Pseudomonas
Track Code2017-002
Short Description

A bi-functional molecule combining an aminoglycoside and ciprofloxacin with a carbon chain "tether". This molecule disrupts the outer bacterial membrane thus overcoming the organisms resistance mechanism.

Abstract

This technology provides an antibiotic adjuvant that restores the efficacy of antibiotics against multidrug-resistant (MDR) gram-negative pathogens. It is is a promising combination strategy to overcome bacterial resistance by clinically important pathogens including MDR and extremely drug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa invitro and in vivo.
