Spero Therapeutics, headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is a product-focused biopharmaceutical company developing a pipeline of novel treatments for bacterial infections. The company's pipeline of anti-infective agents is one of the most unique in the industry. The Spero Potentiator program provides the opportunity to increase the power of standard of care by enhancing existing drugs through a dramatic increase in their potency against multi-drug resistant gram-negative bacteria. Spero recently received an award from the Department of Defense to help fund the Potentiator program. The DHFR program is exploring a new approach to combatting drug resistance through expansion of a novel antifolate's antibacterial spectrum to treat trimethoprim- resistant Gram-negative bacteria. In September 2016, Spero joined the ENABLE (European Gram-negative Antibacterial Engine) project, which provides non-dilutive resources for the development of the DHFR program.
Spero's pipeline of drug candidates may uniquely reduce the morbidity caused by severe infections and promote their clearance, including in bacterial strains highly resistant to even the most potent existing antibiotics. For more information, please visit https://sperotherapeutics.com.
