About Cidara Therapeutics

Cidara is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing
new anti-infectives that have the potential to transform the standard of
care and save or improve patients’ lives. The company is currently
advancing its novel echinocandin antifungal, CD101 IV, through Phase 2
and developing CD201, its bispecific antibiotic immunotherapy, for the
treatment of multi-drug resistant Gram-negative bacterial infections.
CD101 IV has improved pharmacokinetics compared to existing
echinocandins and has the potential for expanded utility across patient
settings. CD101 IV is the only once-weekly product candidate in
development for the treatment and prevention of life-threatening
invasive fungal infections. CD201 is the first drug candidate selected
from Cidara’s novel Cloudbreak™ platform, the first immunotherapy
discovery platform designed specifically to create compounds that direct
a patient’s immune cells to attack and eliminate bacterial, fungal or
viral pathogens. Cidara has received a grant for up to $6.9 million from
CARB-X (Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria Accelerator) to advance
the development of CD201. Cidara is headquartered in San Diego,
California. For more information, please visit
