Agile Sciences today announced that a major international chemical company will support the further evaluation of Agile Sciences' extensive anti-biofilm compound library for the use in defined agricultural markets. Agile Sciences anticipates that data from these planned studies will be available within the next 12 months. Agile Sciences' proprietary compounds have shown unprecedented activity toward inhibiting and dispersing bacterial and fungal biofilms. "We are delighted that following preliminary studies our collaborators have decided to formalize our relationship and embark on a substantial work effort with our compounds. Their decision is particularly gratifying because our companies have been working closely together for the past few months. This is consistent with our business model, and we hope to announce similar progress in the Healthcare, Industrial and Consumer markets shortly", commented Agile Sciences co-founder, Dr. Christian Melander. Dr. Stephen Brand, President of Agile Sciences added, "This partnership enhances our development activities in agriculture and highlights the desire of the industry to find a solution to a problem with tremendous economic and environmental consequences."
