Beating Antibiotic Resistant Pathogens

There have been no new classes of human antibiotics developed in over 30 years, resulting in deadly superbug outbreaks with no new medicines to stop it! Recce Pharmaceuticals has developed a whole new class of synthetic antibiotics to tackle that threat. Our lead compound, RECCE® 327, has undergone rigorous Safety and Efficacy studies according to FDA standards and shown to demonstrate positive activity against a broad range of Multi-Drug Resistant Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacterial infections – including their superbug forms.
