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.ContraFect has been highly successful in raising significant capital to fund their continued commitment to innovative R&D.
