Infectious Diseases

Infectious diseases caused by viral or bacterial pathogens are a major cause of death and morbidity worldwide and constitute an ever growing medical need. We are focusing on discovery, research and development of new anti-infective agents, targeting both the pathogen as well as the host immune defences. In this, we build on an industry-leading technology platform and on a rich legacy of research in this field, which produced some outstanding therapeutics in hepatitis B, influenza and multi-drug resistant bacterial infections.

Partnering opportunities we are looking for:

  • Hepatitis B
  • Multidrug-resistant, Gram-negative Bacterial Infections

Example partnerships

Dicerna – research collaboration and licensing agreement to develop siRNA therapies for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection

Forge Therapeutics – Collaboration agreement to identify and develop a novel antibiotic for treating serious lung infections attributed to antibiotic-resistant Gram-negative bacteria./p>

VenatoRx – Collaboration agreement to develop a new class of intravenous antibiotics that overcomes existing antimicrobial resistance mechanisms.
