This program is studying CSA-131, a synthetic compound that mimics natural compounds in the body that help fight bacterial and fungal infections. CSA-131 aims to inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi, break down their biofilms -- protective layers that bacteria and fungi form that make them more difficult to kill with anti-infectives -- and ultimately kill these organisms.
Laboratory studies to develop and test this compound are underway.
This program is sponsored by Kinnear Pharmaceuticals and partially funded by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
