OGEN’s lantibiotics program includes a clever class of anti-toxins against irresistible sicknesses that have created protection from business anti-infection agents.

Oragenics was as of late granted a small business advancement research award in the measure of $250,000 for “Computer-supported Design for Improved Lantibiotics” R41GM136034″ for OGEN’s proceeded with innovative work of lantibiotics, incorporating its community oriented program with the Biomolecular Sciences Institute at Florida International University (FIU). The award gives OGEN financing to foster novel lantibiotics for the treatment of ESKAPE microbes (Enterococcus faecium, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Enterobacter spp.).
