Going Beyond Antibiotics®
Developing Anti-Infective Compounds Effective Against Bacteria, Viruses and Fungi.
NovaBay Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company developing products for the eye care market. We are currently focused primarily on commercializing prescription Avenova® for managing hygiene of the eyelids and lashes in the United States.
Avenova is the only eye care product formulated with a proprietary, stable and pure form of hypochlorous acid. By replicating the antimicrobial chemicals used by white blood cells to fight infection, Avenova has proven in laboratory testing to have broad antimicrobial properties. Avenova removes debris from the skin on eyelids and lashes without burning or stinging.
We have developed additional commercial products containing pure hypochlorous acid as a result of our patented manufacturing process, including our NeutroPhase® Skin and Wound Cleanser for wound care and CelleRx® for the dermatology market. We have partnerships for NeutroPhase in the U.S. as well as select overseas markets, most notably China.
In addition to our pure HOCI family of products, we have also synthesized and developed a second category of novel compounds aimed at harnessing the power of white blood cell chemistry to address the global, topical anti-infective market. This second product category includes auriclosene, our lead clinical-stage Aganocide® compound, which is a patented, synthetic molecule with a broad spectrum of activity against bacteria, viruses and fungi.
