Acurx's approach is to develop antibiotic candidates that block an entirely new molecular target previously unexploited in medical research, DNA polymerase IIIC (Pol IIIC). Its pipeline includes clinical stage and early stage antibiotic candidates that target Gram-positive bacteria for oral and/or parenteral treatment of infections caused by Clostridium difficile, Enterococcus (including vancomycin-resistant strains of VRE), Staphylococcus (including methicillin-resistant strains of MRSA), and Streptococcus (including antibiotic-resistant strains).
