Centauri Therapeutics

Centauri Therapeutics Limited is a UK-based biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of novel molecules targeting life threatening diseases. The Alphamer technology is based on “programmable immunity”​ in which chemically synthesised molecules redirect naturally occurring antibodies to selected pathogens to fight the infection. The molecules have two distinct parts: one end binds a cell-surface target on the pathogen using an aptamer whereas the other end presents specific epitopes that attach to the circulating antibodies. It has been demonstrated that Alphamers have the potential to redirect pre-existing antibodies to bacteria in a specific manner and trigger an immediate antibacterial immune response, so clearing the infection. Centauri Therapeutics’ assets include specific leads and platform chemistry that is protected by strong IP and a family of granted patents and applications.
