Dr. Ron Najafi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of NovaBay Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE MKT: NBY) has provided an update on the Stock Sector Financial News Network regarding the company’s pipeline of topical anti-infective treatments. The video is available at: Stock Sector NBY Interview
Dr. Najafi noted that in the next three to nine months, NovaBay is expected to announce data from three phase 2 studies for its key products to treat urinary catheter blockage and encrustation (UCBE), impetigo, and adenoviral conjunctivitis. Dr. Najafi cited the growing, global crisis of antibiotic resistance as proof of the need for solutions such as NovaBay’s, which have low propensity for developing bacterial resistance. As Aganocides® begin to supplement and thereby reduce the usage of classic topical antibiotics, they will help slow the rise of antibiotic resistance.
