About Aganocide Compounds
The Aganocide compounds are novel, proprietary, synthetic N-chlorinated antimicrobial molecules specifically designed by NovaBay to mimic the body's natural defense against infection. These compounds may deliver the same or better efficacy as currently used antibiotics without contributing to the growing rise of bacterial resistance. This new class of highly differentiated compounds is ideally suited to meet numerous unmet needs in dermatology and other applications, while currently available therapies do not provide adequate treatment and often cause unwanted side effects. The Aganocide compounds have shown in preclinical trials to date to be highly effective against the bacteria, viruses and fungi associated with a wide range of dermatological and other conditions. They have also been demonstrated to be effective against bacteria in biofilm, which render most antibiotics ineffective.

These compounds have a potentially broad therapeutic index providing a high degree of potency, good tolerability and dosing versatility and flexibility.
