Recce’s New Classes of Synthetic Anti-infectives are designed to address the urgent global health threat posed by antibiotic resistant superbugs and emerging viral pathogens. Recce Pharmaceuticals have developed two primary drug candidates: RECCE® 327 for bacterial infections and RECCE® 529 for viral infections. RECCE® 529 is a new synthetic polymer formulation with indication against viruses. All RECCE® compounds are 100% water soluble at all pH levels in their liquid form. Recce Pharmaceuticals continues to strengthen and expand their product pipeline in order to find a treatment for ‘difficult to treat’ bacterial and viral infections.
RECCE® 327 - Bacterial Infections
There is a historic lack of innovation in the antibiotic drug development field to address this growing need for effective antibiotics. RECCE® 327 is one of the first new classes of antibiotics in over 30 years with a universal mechanism of action that allow its compounds to continuously kill bacteria and multi-drug resistant superbugs.
What Bacteria has RECCE® 327 demonstrated capability against?
- Clostridium difficile
- Helicobacter pylori
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa
- Neisseria gonorrhoeae
- Escherichia coli
- Klebsiella pneumoniae
- Staphylococcus aureus
- Streptococcus pyogenes
- Enterococcus species
RECCE® 529 – Viral Infections
In response to the pandemic outbreak of COVID-19 with no proven vaccine or therapeutics currently available, the Company is undertaking initial studies of RECCE 529 to indicate any potential therapeutic effect against SARS-CoV-2 (the virus causing the disease ‘Coronavirus’ or ‘COVID-19’).
Designed with a purpose
The Company has designed a patented, automated, economically attractive manufacturing process for RECCE® 327. It has invested in a purpose built, wholly owned manufacturing facility, compliant with cGMP manufacturing standards.
Furthermore, the manufacturing process is reproducible and has a CMC (Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Controls) data package, essential for clinical study materials.
Recce Pharmaceutical’s synthetic process is efficient giving rise to a 99.9% product yield in several hours. It requires no specialised and expensive waste removal or risk of environmental contamination.
RECCE® – Multiple Anti-Infective Applications
Recce's technology enjoys the added opportunity of multiple markets and product categories.
- Severe Sepsis — Blood poisoning
- Pre Sepsis — Kidney and UTI infections
- Skin and Skin Structure Infection — Wound Infection, Contraction
- Influenza A and other significant respiratory infections
- R327 Priority 1 Candidate Group - SARS-CoV-2 Antiviral Program with CSIRO and The Peter Doherty Institute
- Path Bio Anaytics & Leading US academic instituition to evaluate R237 & R529 anti-viral activity in SARS-CoV-2
- Gastritis (H. pylori)
- Reproductive Organs (N. gonorrhoeae)
- *FIH - First-in-human
There have been no new classes of antibiotics on the market for over 30 years - Recce® 327 has the potential to break that mould. Recce® 327 is a synthetic polymer, designed to target bacteria that cause infectious disease – including ones that are resistant to current antibiotics – the superbugs. Bacterial infections of the blood are deadly and affect an estimated 30 million people world-wide every year - this is where Recce® 327 is designed to act. Recce® 327 is designed to be administered through injection so it can quickly spread through the blood stream.
Recce® 327 is designed to adhere to the outer cell wall of the infectious bacteria through hydrophobic interactions. This weakens the cell wall and internal pressures from within the cell cause the bacteria to burst. The body’s own mechanisms can then clear the infection. Normal non-bacterial cells remain intact as they do not contain high internal pressures.
Tests have shown Recce® 327 is fast acting and as a broad spectrum antibiotic is effective against gram positive and gram negative bacteria including antibiotic resistant superbugs. Following regulatory requirements for new antibiotics, safety and efficacy tests will continue to urgently explore Recce® 327’s ability to address the global threat posed by superbugs.
