Notes to Editors
Motif is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company, which specialises in developing novel antibiotics designed to be effective against serious and life-threatening infections caused by multi-drug resistant bacteria. The Company has a lead antibiotic candidate, iclaprim, in clinical development and MTF-001, a preclinical stage programme to design a best-in-class dihydrofolate reductase inhibitor (DHFRi).
Iclaprim is being developed for the treatment of the most common and serious bacterial infections such as acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI) and hospital acquired bacterial pneumonia (HABP), including those caused by resistant strains such as MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and MDRSP (multi-drug resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae) that have become prevalent in patients in both the community and hospital settings.
