ABOUT

Sideromics is a pharmaceutical company developing novel compounds and methods to treat or prevent diseases and disorders caused by iron-dependent pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi and parasites.

GALLIUM COMPOUNDS

Sideromics is testing various compounds in human & animal therapeutic indications.  Certain compounds are also being tested in farm animal health and processing.  Gallium is a semi-metallic group IIIa element that has been used in several FDA approved drug & diagnostic products for many years.

PIPELINE

HUMAN APPLICATIONS: 

       Bacteremia/Septicemia - Phase I/II 

       Bubonic / Pneumonic Plague - Phase II

       First Aid / Consumer Product

ANIMAL APPLICATIONS:

       Poultry Carcass Disinfectant

       Bovine Mastitis Kit

       Feed / Drink Additive

FDA APPROVED THE FIRST USE OF GALLIUM IN HUMANS IN 1976

1.4 million cases of food poisoning a year, including over 400 deaths from Salmonella poisoning.

Iron dependent bacteria mistakenly take up gallium instead of iron.  Iron is redox active, allowing bacteria to respirate.  Gallium is redox inactive, which interferes with bacteria's ability to respire, leading to bacterial death.

Food-borne diseases are of major concern worldwide. To date, around 250 different food-borne diseases have been described, and bacteria are the causative agents of two thirds of food-borne disease outbreaks. Among the predominant bacteria involved in these diseases, Staphylococcus aureus is a leading cause of gastroenteritis resulting from the consumption of contaminated food.
