Natural Product-Based Drug Development
The term "poststantibiotic era" was coined about three decades ago when available antibiotics gradually ceased to be effective on account of the emergence of multidrug resistance in infectious microorganisms. It is a fact that human pathogens are developing increasing resistance to a broad range of available antimicrobials, thus putting into doubt the success of treatment with conventional antibiotics. It is for this very reason that the BioΦytoMedical Scientific Team is working on the development of drugs based on natural products for the treatment of infections.

Spindiag GmbH was founded in 2016 as a spin-off from the research institute Hahn-Schickard. It develops a system for the fast, broad and affordable screening of patients for antibiotic-resistant germs during their admission to hospitals. This is crucial because worldwide millions of patients get infected in hospitals every year. Spindiag’s system will generate information on more than 20 possible pathogens and their antibiotic resistance directly at the point-of-care from patient samples in just 30 minutes, instead of as before in 24-72 hours. Through this early knowledge of bacteria and resistances, the number of unnecessary infections can be significantly reduced in hospitals because a sound isolation decision can be made quickly.
