ContraFect, a late-stage clinical biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of biotherapeutics for life-threatening, drug-resistant infectious diseases is located in Westchester County, near New York City. We are dedicated to innovative drug development, leveraging novel technologies to create new therapies that address the high unmet medical needs of patients suffering from serious, antibiotic-resistant infections for which there are limited available treatment options. We are using ContraFect’s technical expertise to develop biotherapeutics for serious bacterial infections, including those caused by MDR and XDR strains that have high unmet medical needs, particularly products used in hospital-based markets.
It is an exciting time in our Company’s history as we advance our direct lytic agent (DLA) platform of lysins and amurin peptides into the clinic. Exebacase (CF-301), our lead lysin, is the first and only direct lytic agent to report promising results in Phase 2 and to advance to Phase 3 of development. Earlier last year, the FDA granted Breakthrough Therapy designation to exebacase for development as a treatment for MRSA bloodstream infections (bacteremia), including right-sided endocarditis, when used in addition to standard-of-care (SOC) anti-staphylococcal antibiotics. The exebacase Phase 3 study, known as the DISRUPT Study (“ Direct Lysis of Staph aureus Resistant Pathogen Trial”) ongoing in the United States and will serve as the single pivotal trial to support the BLA. ContraFect also has an active discovery pipeline of DLAs discovered at ContraFect which are progressing towards the clinic with support from major funding agencies including the Department of Defense, CARB-X and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Our lead IND candidate, CF-370, a lysin targets MDR Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a bacteria identified as a serious threat in the CDC’s Antibiotic Threats in the US, 2019 report.
