THE STATE OF INNOVATION IN ANTIBACTERIAL THERAPEUTICS, 2022

Antibacterial drug discovery and development during the 20th century yielded one of the greatest armaments available to physicians, with more than 90% of all antibacterial drugs discovered during this period.

However, this next century is already presenting challenges that may render these older antibiotics obsolete. This BIO Industry Analysis report investigates recent investment into antibacterial innovation and the current clinical pipeline that will help bridge the gaps in the antibacterial armamentarium.
