They kill a wide spectrum of bacteria, including (multi-, and PAN-) resistant bacteria.
They kill bacteria from the outside
They have antibiofilm properties – killing persister cells
They lower the chance of AMR to emerge as our SAAPs are more robust against resistance development.
They kill bacteria within minutes rather than days or weeks
They have a very favorable tolerance profile, as SAAP are inspired by a human-derived molecule
The animation below shows how our peptides work
