The company also develops CF-296, an engineered lysin, used for treatment of the invasive infections caused by staph aureus including biofilm-related infections in prosthetic joints and indwelling devices and osteomyelitis; and CF-370, an investigational anti-bacterial therapeutic candidate, which in preclinical trials for the treatment of pseudomonas aeruginosa infections, including ventilator associated pneumonia, blood stream infections, complicated urinary tract infections, and surgery carry infections. The company has a collaboration research agreement with The Rockefeller University to identification of novel lysin therapeutic candidates targeting gram-negative pathogens. It also initiated an expanded access program to provide exebacase for the treatment of persistent bacteremia caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in COVID-19 patients.
