ABOUT OMNIX MEDICAL
Omnix Medical is a biotechnology company focused on discovering and developing peptide therapeutic for life-threatening, drug-resistant infectious diseases, particularly those treated in hospital settings. Hospital-acquired infections are currently the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, following heart disease, cancer and stroke.
Omnix Medical’s molecules (OMN6, OMN7 and OMN11) are developed for the treatment of these infections via systemic IV administration. Our lead product OMN6 targets A. baumannii. Clinical trials will begin in 2020.
Omnix’s technology is inspired by the innate immune system of insects, employing a strategy that has been proven very efficient for 250 million years. Insects combat pathogenic bacteria using a unique family of Antimicrobial Peptides that physically damage bacterial membranes with no toxic effects. The rapid bactericidal Mechanism of Action employed by these peptides is active against Gram(-) multidrug-resistant pathogens, the ESKAPE bacteria: K. pneumonia spp, A. baumannii, P. aeruginosa and Enterobacter spp. These bacteria are the most serious and urgent threats to public health leading to ~50% mortality among infected patients in Intensive Care Units.
Omnix Medical was founded in 2015. Headquartered in Jerusalem, Israel, the Company employs eight scientists advancing in-house research and development as well as closely directing studies with top-tier international contract research organizations.
“We are delighted that Omnix Medical will be presenting at Biotech Showcase this year,” said Sara Demy, CEO of Demy-Colton. “Biotech Showcase is a prime occasion for life science entrepreneurs and investors to come together to discover the potential of innovative technologies that will drive the future of drug discovery.”
