CSA BioTech is a clinical stage firm developing Ceragenins: powerful, first in class, small molecules with broad application uses.
Making the Greatest Impact in the Shortest Amount of Time with Ceragenin Technology
For the first time in history, we have a superior defense to the growing amount of drug-resistant infections and diseases threatening our lives today.The Science
Drug-resistant super-bugs, already a big problem in hospitals, may have learned a new trick, researchers reported Wednesday.
They may have evolved resistance to alcohol – the ingredient in hand sanitizers and disinfectants that are one mainstay of hospital infection control, Australian researchers said.
Drug-resistant super bugs are as big a threat to the world as climate change or wars, Britain’s Health Secretary Matt Hancock warned during a speech at Davos… “I shudder at the thought of a world in which their (antibiotics) power is diminished. Antimicrobial resistance is a big danger to humanity and is as big a danger as climate change or warfare.
Imagine a world where every day operations like caesareans or hip replacements, were considered too risky to perform. Or where, as the Secretary of State for Health Matt Hancock said at the World Economic Forum at Davos this week, a simple graze could be deadly”.. such a vision could be reality as soon as 2050, with more than 10 million people dying each year due to antimicrobial resistance.
The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) estimates resistant infections could kill about 2.4 million people in Europe, North America and Australia by 2050 unless more is done to tackle the problem, which it describes as “one of the biggest threats to modern medicine.
