AUROBAC is currently seeking to strengthen its product portfolio and is particularly interested in in-licensing or co-developing products developed to fight bacterial infections & AMR, with a focus on:

  • New and alternative modalities like e.g., phage lysins, therapeutic antibodies, etc.,
  • Novel target classes and mode of actions,
  • Host Immune-modulation approaches,
  • Products addressing high unmet medical needs,
  • Targeted modalities that can be combined with rapid and actionable diagnostics and that are supported by new economic models.

“The rise of antimicrobial resistance worldwide jeopardizes the prevention and treatment of life-threatening resistant bacterial infections, which are already killing 1.3 million people per year. AUROBAC has the remarkable ambition to become a leader in AMR innovation with a unique combination of the best capabilities of the three founding companies, Boehringer Ingelheim, Evotec and bioMérieux.

Our strategy is to develop and commercialize safe and effective drugs using selected diagnostic approaches, in order to cure efficiently infected patients with minimized risks of recurrence and limited impact on disseminating resistance.“

Florence Séjourné, CEO.

What is AMR?

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has emerged as one of the principal public health problems of the 21st century that threatens the effective prevention and treatment of an ever-increasing range of infections caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses, and fungi no longer susceptible to the common medicines used to treat them.

The problem of AMR is especially urgent regarding antibiotic resistance in bacteria. Over several decades, to varying degrees, bacteria causing common or severe infections have developed resistance to each new antibiotic coming to market.

Faced with this reality, the need for action to avert a developing global crisis in health care is imperative, and innovation is required.
