About PolyMedix, Inc.
PolyMedix is a publicly traded biotechnology company focused on the development of novel drugs and biomaterials for the treatment of acute cardiovascular disorders and infectious diseases. PolyMedix's compounds are based on biomimetics: non-peptide small molecule drug candidates and polymers that mimic the activity of proteins. PMX-60056, PolyMedix's heptagonist compound, is being developed to reverse the activity of both heparin and low molecular weight heparins. PolyMedix plans to develop an antagonist drug that is safer and easier to use than currently approved therapy. PMX-30063, PolyMedix's antibiotic compound is a small molecule that mimics human host-defense proteins and has a completely different mechanism of action distinct from those of current antibiotic drugs, a mechanism which is intended to make bacterial resistance unlikely to develop. PolyMedix's goal is to develop this compound as a rapidly acting antibiotic for serious systemic and local infections. Both PMX-60056 heptagonist and PMX-30063 antibiotic are currently undergoing clinical testing. PolyMedix also plans to continue the development of polymeric formulations as antimicrobial biomaterials, which can be used as additives to paints, plastics, and textiles to create self-sterilizing products and surfaces.
