NIH Funds Synedgen to Develop a New Drug to Improve Airway Clearance
Date:9/27/2013

to tackle biofilms and sputum, reducing their cohesion and viscosity to allow the patient to clear them both. Our preliminary data demonstrates that our polymeric drug both reduces the viscosity of CF sputum and improves sputum mobility in vitro, and separately loosens biofilms,” stated Synedgen President Shenda Baker. “We hypothesize the drug will have significant synergistic activity with traditional antibiotics, and are eager to explore the magnitude and duration of these effects in mucus, biofilms, and in combination.”

In other studies of pathogenic infection and mucosal surface damage, this new drug has been shown to reduce inflammation at the surface. Since cystic fibrosis is a disease severely affected by airway inflammation, future studies will also examine the drug’s potential additional role in mitigating pulmonary inflammation.

“The preliminary data are extremely exciting,” stated Dr. Steven Rowe, “and could provide a new avenue to address mucus stasis in CF lung disease, potentially improving lung health.”

Preliminary results from these studies will be presented in October at the 27th Annual North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference. Synedgen hopes its new drug will make the sputum flow more freely, break up pathogenic biofilms and also enhance activity of standard antibiotics, providing a new and highly effective pulmonary treatment to help CF patients breathe more easily and combat lung infections.
