TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oragenics, Inc.

This demonstrates significant progress toward the commercial production of its lead lantibiotic, MU1140, and delivers an important step in validating the lantibiotics platform targeting infectious diseases. Oragenics and Intrexon have been working together through the ECC to produce a pipeline of new lantibiotics that have been shown to be active against essentially all Gram-positive pathogens, including vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), Clostridium difficile, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), as well as multi-drug resistant strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
