About Pathogenics, Inc.

Pathogenics, Inc. (PTGN.PK) is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing its proprietary formulations of N-Chlorotaurine (NCT) for the treatment or prevention of infections. After NCT kills a pathogen, the agent quickly breaks down into natural substances already found in the human body, and therefore it is likely to be extremely safe, non-toxic and hypoallergenic. Unlike antibiotics, the way NCT kills pathogens prevents development of drug resistance. NCT has successfully completed Phase II studies for several topical and body cavity infections.
