Alaxia joins EU consortium to combat drug-resistant lung infections


Partnership in iABC project will accelerate Alaxia’s development of promising
antimicrobial therapy for cystic fibrosis



Lyon, France, October 23, 2019 – Alaxia, an affiliate of the Stragen Healthcare Group developing therapeutic solutions for respiratory diseases, today announces it has joined the iABC (inhaled Antibiotics in Bronchiectasis and Cystic Fibrosis) consortium as a partner. The iABC project, consisting of 22 partners in eight European countries, aims to advance the development of two inhaled antimicrobials for patients with cystic fibrosis and bronchiectasis. These patients are at particular risk of respiratory infections, frequently caused by drug-resistant microbes that reduce life expectancy.


Through the consortium, Alaxia will accelerate development of its antibacterial candidate for cystic fibrosis, ALX-009. Alaxia will gain access to all patient and clinical trial networks. It will also have access to expertise on inhaled antimicrobials from iABC members, as well as member support in clinical trials and patient recruitment.
