Summit Therapeutics, a UK-based clinical-stage drug discovery and development company, has claimed to have discovered multiple new mechanism antibiotics against novel ESKAPE pathogen targets, it was reported on Friday.
The objective of this study is to molecular approaches to resistance genes in ESKAPE pathogens.
The recovered ESKAPE pathogens showed high susceptibility against the selected antibiotics except for P aeruginosa where it exhibited 22% resistance to amikacin, ampicillin-sulbactam, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and ampicillin.
We hope it will lead to the development of a novel and safe antimicrobial that can be added to the diminished arsenal for the fight against the ESKAPE pathogens and other infection-related health issues plaguing the planet.
