The Company recently reported positive results from its Phase IIb dose-ranging clinical trial for its lead product candidate, PAC-113, a novel anti-fungal drug. The Phase IIb study, which involved over 200 seropositive HIV patients, demonstrated that PAC-113 efficacy profile compares favorably to the efficacy of Nystatin, a current standard of care for topical treatment of oral Candidiasis. Pacgen will begin preparing for Phase III development and seek collaboration and commercialization partner for PAC-113.

Pacgen also has an early stage research program. The most advanced of three candidates is a peptide therapeutic, PAC-G31P, which is currently being investigated in preclinical studies for its potential to treat inflammatory disease.

In conditions such as ARDS where over-recruitment of neutrophils is part of the disease process, PAC-G31P is expected to block the receptors, overcome the excessive alarm signal, and restore a level of neutrophil recruitment that is appropriate to respond to the lung injury or infection.

The growth of this market and demand for effective anti-fungals is driven by a rising incidence of immunocompromised patients populations including individuals with HIV, cancer, asthma and diabetes, among others. Candida albicans is the most common fungal pathogen among immune-compromised, hospitalized patients, accounting for roughly 50-60% of all bloodstream fungal isolates.
