Therapies Development Targeting Type III Secretion System of P. Aeruginosa

One of the key virulence factors employed by P. Aeruginosa is the Type III Secretion System (T3SS). The T3SS is a complex molecular machinery that allows P. aeruginosa to inject a variety of toxins directly into the host cells, facilitating its survival and evasion of the immune system. Targeting the T3SS has emerged as a promising strategy for the development of novel therapies against P. aeruginosa infections.

At Ace Therapeutics, we are at the forefront of this field, employing advanced techniques and innovative approaches to unravel the mysteries of the T3SS and develop effective therapies.

Key Areas of Development

Understanding the T3SS Mechanism

We dedicate significant efforts to unraveling the intricate details of the T3SS mechanism in P. aeruginosa. Our team of experienced scientists employs cutting-edge techniques to gain a comprehensive understanding of this virulence system.

Identification of T3SS Inhibitors

Our research focuses on the discovery and development of small molecules and biologics that can effectively inhibit the T3SS activity of P. aeruginosa. Through rigorous screening of compound libraries and innovative drug design strategies, we aim to identify potent inhibitors that can disrupt the function of the T3SS apparatus.

Combination Therapies

We explore the synergistic effects of T3SS inhibitors in combination with conventional antibiotics or other targeted therapies. By strategically designing combination approaches, we aim to maximize treatment efficacy while minimizing the emergence of drug resistance.
