About Alopexx, Inc.

Alopexx is a clinical stage biotechnology company targeting novel immune therapeutics for the prevention and treatment of bacterial, fungal and parasitic microbial infections.  The target of our therapeutics, poly N-acetyl glucosamine (PNAG), has been found in a wide range of pathogens.  Our vaccine candidate, AV0328, has been shown to induce protective antibodies against a wide range of PNAG-expressing pathogens in a Phase 1 trial.   F598, our fully human monoclonal antibody, has been shown to be safe and well tolerated in phase 1 and pilot trials.  Following a single infusion, it can provide protection for 2-3 months. 

Our goal is to develop a broad-spectrum, non-antibiotic therapeutic platform for the treatment and prevention of microbial infections. These immune therapeutics will reduce reliance on antibiotics and the development of antimicrobial resistance.
