02 May 2019 – Destiny Pharma welcomes United Nations report

Destiny Pharma welcomes a United Nations report calling for immediate, coordinated and ambitious action to avert a potentially disastrous drug-resistance crisis

Destiny Pharma’s XF drug platform is well positioned to address the report’s recommendation for more innovation to tackle antimicrobial resistance

Destiny Pharma, a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on the development of novel anti-microbial drugs which address the global problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), welcomes a new report from the United Nations, and others, entitled ‘No time to wait: securing the future from drug-resistant infections’

The report underscores that AMR is a global crisis.  Unless the world acts urgently, AMR will have a disastrous impact within a generation, with the World Bank predicting 10 million deaths every year by 2050, if no action is taken.

One of the five key recommendations within the report is to ‘innovate to secure the future’, including the development of new antimicrobials.  Destiny Pharma’s targeted approach, through the development of an antibacterial platform, the XF drugs, whose novel bacterial membrane action has been shown to impede resistance development, is well positioned to address this recommendation.  The Company’s lead drug candidate, XF-73, is currently in Phase 2b development for the prevention of post-surgical hospital infections, with recruitment in the trial expected to complete later this year.

The full report can be found here.

About XF-73

XF-73 is a synthetic anti-microbial active against all tested Staphylococcus aureus strains, including drug resistant strains. By acting via a cell-surface mechanism it affects the bacterial membrane permeability and integrity, leading to cell death. XF-73 has already been through five successful Phase I/IIb clinical trials showing rapid antibacterial action. In standard microbiology studies XF drugs have demonstrated a unique no/low resistance profile that means that XF compounds have the potential to deliver novel drugs that are clearly differentiated from traditional antibiotics where resistance limits their utility.

XF-73 is being studies for the prevention of post-surgical staphylococcal infections. In the US, there are approximately 40 million surgeries per annum alone where the patient is at risk of a post-surgical infection. However, within this large population there are particular groups who are at an even higher risk of infection due to the nature of their surgery or the procedures and/or their specific hospital environment in which they are treated. These higher risk surgical procedures include cardiovascular, orthopaedic and other complex surgeries. Destiny Pharma estimates that this totals approximately 14 million US surgeries per year, with this figure set to rise within the context of an ageing population.
