The company is viewed as a global leader in this field. Its proprietary endolysin technology has been created together with the Swiss Federal Technology Institute, ETH in Zurich.

About Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)
AMR is an issue of growing global importance which results in 750,000 deaths per year. It occurs when pathogens adapt so that the drugs used to treat infections become less effective. If not addressed, the spread of antibiotic-resistant pathogens could continue to rise, leading to highly dangerous superbugs. The number of annual global deaths from AMR is projected to increase to 10 million by 2050 — which is more people than die globally of cancer today – unless successful alternatives to antibiotics are developed.
Micreos Pharmaceuticals intends to play a very significant role in addressing AMR and the great unmet medical need for a safe alternative to antibiotics.
