Company Overview

ContraFect is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on discovering and developing biologic therapies for life-threatening, drug-resistant infectious diseases, particularly those treated in hospital settings. An estimated 700,000 deaths worldwide each year are attributed to antimicrobial-resistant infections. We intend to address life threatening infections using our therapeutic product candidates from our platform of direct lytic agents (DLAs), which include lysins and amurin peptides. We believe DLAs provide the opportunity to make meaningful improvements to clinical outcomes and to change the treatment paradigm for patients infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria.  Our initial product candidates are new agents to treat lethal, resistant infections such as methicillin-resistant Staph aureus (MRSA) and Gram-negative pathogens like multi-drug resistant (MDR) Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
