For patients infected with multi-drug resistant (MDR) bacteria, A4 is a novel peptide-based antibiotic that effectively kills MDR bacteria with low propensity to elicit drug resistance. Unlike existing antibiotics or other antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), the A4-AMP is derived from an antimicrobial protein found in human airways.

Inventors: Philip Carullo, MD and Youngjae Chun, PhD Esophocclude Esophocclude is for patients requiring surgical care who have not had the opportunity to fast prior to receiving anesthesia, and therefore, at risk of aspiration. Aspiration during surgery can result in pneumonia, lung damage and inflammation. Esophocclude is an easily-administered oral device and unlike competing alternatives, is less invasive, faster-acting, and easier to administer.
