Uncovering novel advances for increasing resistance in anti-infective drug development: The global anti-infective market is currently estimated at $66.5 billion, with anti-bacterial agents accounting for more than 50% of sales. Many biotechs and pharmaceutical companies are seeing developments in later stage clinical trials, specifically in anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, both of which are growing in demand. The threat of bacterial resistant strains of infectious diseases continually increases and creates a race to develop an effective resistant drug to combat these strains. The Anti-Infectives Summit will discuss effective lead generation approaches currently being used in anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal drug discovery and address which biologics may play a role in anti-infective therapy.
