This new grant will support further evaluation of SGX943 in the treatment of melioidosis in preclinical studies. These results will represent a significant step forward in the development of SGX943 as a medical countermeasure for melioidosis.
"Melioidosis remains a significant biothreat as well as a major life-threatening endemic disease in Southeast Asia and Northern Australia," stated Christopher J. Schaber, PhD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Soligenix. "We are encouraged with the promising preclinical survival results observed to date with SGX943. With this support from NIAID, we look forward to continuing development of SGX943 in melioidosis."
