Celtic Pharma Holdings Announces Investment in Novacta Biosystems Limited
Date:7/5/2009

red around a class of small peptide molecules called lantibiotics, a drug class that, until now, has been underexploited due to the lack of adequate research tools. Novacta's lantibiotic platform has given rise to a number of potential drug candidates, including those in the C. difficile programme. Other programmes include one targeting methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection and others targeting Gram-negative infections. For further information, please visit our website at www.novactabio.com.

About Lantibiotics

Lantibiotics are a naturally occurring class of antibiotic peptide compounds found in a large number of bacteria. They take their name from the lanthionine amino acids found within their structure ( lanthionine-containing antibiotics). Lantibiotics have demonstrated potential to treat infections caused by agents such as C. difficile and MRSA. Conventional medicinal chemistry has been unable to manipulate the structure of the naturally occurring compounds into the optimised forms that have the potential to treat human disease. However, Novacta's proprietary technologies allow the structural manipulation and optimisation of activity which is necessary to unlock the potential of this novel and under-exploited class of compounds.
