About Arsanis, Inc.
Arsanis is a clinical-stage company leading the development of targeted monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) for pre-emptive and post-infection treatment of serious infectious diseases. The company’s current programs address pathogenic processes selectively, rather than aiming to broadly eliminate bacteria, potentially allowing Arsanis to address critical infections without contributing to the problem of antibiotic resistance. The company is building a broad product pipeline addressing the most important Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial pathogens threatening hospitalized and high-risk patients. Its lead therapeutic candidate, ASN100, is aimed at the prevention and treatment of serious Staphylococcus aureus infections and entered a Phase I clinical trial in the fall in 2015, with a Phase II study anticipated to begin in 2016.
Arsanis is a U.S. company headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts, with European research and preclinical development operations headquartered in Vienna, Austria (Arsanis Biosciences GmbH).
