ted state-of- art chemistry and biology facility for drug discovery and development activities to advance its next-generation antimicrobial products.

About Multi-Drug Resistance and MRSA

Modern antimicrobials (antibiotics and related pharmaceuticals) have substantially reduced the threat posed by infectious diseases and contributed to a dramatic drop in mortality rates over the past 30 years. However, due to widespread use of existing drugs in the community and hospital environment, pathogenic bacteria resistant to current antimicrobial therapies have evolved and become ubiquitous, presenting a global health threat. The World Health Organization has set forth a mandate to combat this growing problem and encouraged an urgent action of the member countries. MicuRx is addressing this need directly by developing best-in-class antimicrobials targeting multi- drug resistant bacteria.

About MicuRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

By applying designer modifications to validated antibiotics, MicuRx intends to improve overall pharmacological properties of antimicrobial drugs in order to overcome antibiotic resistance, increase the antibacterial spectrum, improve the dosing regimen, or reduce adverse side effects.
