SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AmpliPhi Biosciences Corporation (NYSE American: APHB), a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development of therapies for antibiotic-resistant infections using bacteriophage technology, announces that Paul C. Grint, M.D., Chief Executive Officer, will present a company overview at the Rodman & Renshaw 19th Annual Global Investment Conference on Monday, Sept. 11.
“We are developing our proprietary bacteriophage technology using expanded access regulatory guidelines established by the FDA in the United States and the TGA in Australia,” said Dr. Grint. “Our lead bacteriophage candidates have the potential to treat patients with serious or life-threatening multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections, both included on the WHO’s 2017 Priority Pathogens List. We expect the data from these expanded access cases to support the selection of indications for further clinical development in the first half of 2018 and, in consultation with the FDA, TGA and other regulatory agencies, define the potential path to regulatory approval.”

About AmpliPhi Biosciences
AmpliPhi Biosciences Corporation is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on treating antibiotic-resistant infections using its proprietary bacteriophage-based technology. AmpliPhi’s lead product candidates target multidrug-resistant S. aureus and P. aeruginosa, which are included on the WHO’s 2017 Priority Pathogens List. Phage therapeutics are uniquely positioned to address the threat of antibiotic-resistance as they can be precisely targeted to kill select bacteria, have a differentiated mechanism of action, can penetrate and disrupt biofilms (a common bacterial defense mechanism against antibiotics), are potentially synergistic with antibiotics and have been shown to restore antibiotic sensitivity to drug-resistant bacteria.
