About Alopexx Pharmaceuticals, LLC

Alopexx Pharmaceuticals was founded to develop a promising new treatment for serious Staphylococcus aureus infections, including those caused by methicillin-resistant strains known as MRSA. In the past decade MRSA has emerged as a major public health problem. Due to the increasing volume of antimicrobial usage around the world, MRSA and many bacteria have become increasingly resistant to most commonly used antibiotics. mAb F598 is a fully human monoclonal antibody that has the potential to serve as an alternative to antibiotics in the fight against MRSA and other S. aureus infections. Unlike antibiotics, monoclonal antibodies will not lead to the development of bacterial resistance. The target of the antibody is a carbohydrate on the bacterial capsule known as PNAG. PNAG has been found to be a critical factor in the virulence and immune response to MRSA as well as non-MRSA staphylococcal infections and is also expressed by other bacterial pathogens. Alopexx Pharmaceuticals, LLC was co-founded by Gerald Pier, PhD and Daniel Vlock, MD. Its aim is to develop and explore the use of novel therapies for the treatment and prevention of MRSA and other serious infections.
