AzurRx BioPharma Inc. (NASDAQ: AZRX) today released positive results for preclinical testing of its AZX1103 product, a b-lactamase enzyme combination treatment designed to prevent hospital-acquired gastro-intestinal infections for patients receiving antibiotics in the hospital setting. As stated in the press release, “The series of preclinical studies investigated oral delivery of AZ1103 using three different capsule formulations: immediate-release, enteric-delivery or colonic-delivery. In all three formulations and at all doses tested, AZ1103 appeared to be well tolerated. No side effects were observed and the animals showed normal behavior, standard food consumption and body weight gain. There was no evidence of acute toxicity, and no severe immunoallergic reactions were seen at doses of up to 180mg/day. The favorable safety profile is partly the result of AZ1103 not being absorbed by the gut and entering the bloodstream.”
