About Aganocide((R)) Compounds

The Aganocide((R)) compounds are novel, proprietary, synthetic N-chlorinated antimicrobial molecules specifically developed by NovaBay((R)) to mimic the body's natural defense against infection. The Aganocide((R)) compounds maintain the biological activities while improving the stability of naturally occurring N-chlorinated antimicrobial molecules. These highly differentiated, first-in-class, small-molecule, patented new chemical entities may be able to deliver the same or better efficacy than currently used antibiotics without contributing to the growing rise of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains. In preclinical testing, the Aganocide((R)) compounds have been shown to be highly effective against bacteria, including multi-drug resistant strains, viruses and fungi. They also have been demonstrated to be effective against bacteria in biofilms, which render most antibiotics ineffective. Aganocides have a broad therapeutic index while providing a high degree of potency and tolerability as well as dosing versatility and flexibility.
