About MGB Biopharma
MGB Biopharma is developing a truly novel class of anti-infectives. MGB's lead candidate, MGB-BP-3, is a broad spectrum antibacterial which is active against key multi-resistant Gram positive pathogens. The Company has developed an oral formulation of MGB-BP-3 for Clostridium difficile that is ready to enter the clinic, while an IV formulation for a range of Gram positive infections is in late-stage preclinical development.
MGB's anti-infective drug development capabilities are driven by its broad anti-infective platform, which has the potential to generate truly novel compounds active against other infectious diseases such as Gram negative pathogens as well parasites and fungi.
MGB's anti-infectives are based on minor groove binders (MGBs). Minor groove binders have a new mode of action that offers significant advantages over existing anti-infectives, such as being more bactericidal and active against a broad range of drug-resistant bacteria.
MGB has close links with the University of Strathclyde, with exclusive worldwide licence rights to Strathclyde's MGB patents for all fields expect anticancer. The Company intends to work with partners to fully capitalize on the multiple value creating opportunities offered by its broad and novel anti-infectives platform.
The Company was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in Glasgow, Scotland. It is backed by Scotland's
