The termination of license granted to Armis Biopharma, Inc. (formerly known as CHO Bioscience, Inc.) for its investigational antibacterial product, DFA-02, for the prophylaxis of surgical site infections (SSIs) leads Dr. Reddy's to regain worldwide rights to DFA-02, and is currently evaluating its options to take the program forward.

DFA-02 is a combination, broad spectrum antibacterial in situ gel which is being investigated for the prophylaxis of SSIs as an adjunct to conventional preoperative antibiotic prophylaxis. DFA-02 has been studied in several phase 1 and 2 clinical studies, and has demonstrated clinical efficacy in several key segments of patients who were at high risk for SSIs.
