Recce Pharmaceuticals Releases White Paper Providing Data and Market Positioning of its Synthetic Polymer Antibiotics

SYDNEY, Australia, 23 October 2019: Recce Pharmaceuticals Ltd (ASX: RCE) (Company), the company developing a new class of antibiotics, today published a white paper providing pre-clinical and experimental data on its new synthetic antibiotics and outlining the market need, its anticipated market positioning and development strategy.

The paper titled “How Synthetic Antibiotic Development Can Change the Antibiotic Treatment Model" has been distributed ahead of the World Anti-Microbial Resistance Congress to be held on Thursday 7 to Friday 8 November in Washington D.C, where Recce Chairman Dr. John Prendergast will give the Opening R&D Address.

A copy of the paper can be downloaded here.

The paper highlights how the need for new antibiotics has never been greater as resistance has developed to most currently approved antibiotics. It examines the significant potential of Recce’s promising synthetic antibiotic pipeline and potential role helping turn back the rising tide of antibiotic resistance globally. It presents data to support its potential as a life-saving antibiotic therapy, in particular for its lead application in sepsis.

A copy of Dr. John Prendergast’s presentation will be released to the ASX immediately prior to the conference in November.
