Financials

Recce Pharmaceuticals is a clinical-stage, Australian biotech company developing a novel class of broad-spectrum synthetic anti-infective drugs to which, so far, all tested bacteria have been unable to develop resistance. This would be a very desirable trait given widespread concerns about antimicrobial resistance. The lead indication for RECCE 327 (R327) is sepsis (Phase I/II study underway), a substantial area of unmet need with significant mortality and high costs of care. Recce is also assessing its intravenous formulation in complicated urinary tract infections. Topical spray and gel formulations of R327 are also being evaluated for burn wound infections and diabetic foot infections.
