Lead Product in Development

Our developmental forefront encompasses two categories of lead products: A) Five small molecule candidates (ATX 1-5) are meticulously designed to directly impede the pivotal bacterial enzyme catalyzing the presentation of virulence factors on the surface of gram-positive bacterial cells. This strategy effectively halts bacterial infections from targeting mammalian cells. ATX-B1, a second-generation small molecule inhibitor, was rapidly designed through an in-house generative AI platform. B) Three biological candidates (protein AXTPC, peptide AXPN1, and monoclonal antibody AXmAb1) distinctly attenuate bacterial infections by precisely obstructing long-range communication between bacterial and mammalian cells. These candidates mark pioneering "anti-infective" therapies, especially the biological candidates, which herald a transformative avenue for preventive anti-infectious drugs and vaccine development. All these candidates have exhibited substantial inhibitory efficacy in both in vitro tests and live cell assays, solidifying their "first-in-kind" status. Our current focus lies in the preclinical stage, leveraging these promising results to advance toward clinical translation.
