Amplyx Pharmaceuticals is developing novel, broad-spectrum antifungal agents for the treatment of life-threatening invasive fungal infections due to candida, aspergillus and rare molds.

Patients undergoing chemotherapy and other immunosuppressive treatments end up with compromised immune systems. This makes them susceptible to a new disease—invasive fungal infections. By treating their underlying condition, patients are now open to a new life-threatening disease.

Yet, existing therapies for invasive fungal infections are extremely limited on many fronts—they’re difficult to administer, can have toxic side effects and are ineffective against more potent fungi which have developed resistance.

Amplyx is advancing a novel small-molecule therapy, APX001, in clinical development. The Phase 1 program is evaluating APX001 using both intravenous and oral formulations to address the need for treatment in both the hospital setting and continued convenient treatment after discharge from hospital.
