    • Sequence Name

    • hLF1-11
    • Description

    • an 11-mer peptide from the N terminus of human lactoferrin
    • Activity

    • Antibacterial, Antifungal
    • Medical use

    • LPS-mediated diseasesand fungal infections
    • Stage of Development

    • Phase I(Completed)
    • Comments

    • hLF1-11 has proved efficacious in animal models of osteomyelitis and other bacterial infections.Significant efficacy observed in Phase I trials; mechanism of action appears to be immunomodulatory rather than antibiotic.

    • AM-Pharma Holding BV
    • Target Organism

      • In vivo,a dose-dependent bacteriocidal effect of intravenous administered peptide was observed in both immunocompetent and -compromised mice with a MRSA infection and hLF1-11 0.4–40µg/kg reduced 2 – 3 logs of bacterial counts in mice
