Accession Number: DB05756 ( DB05756)
Description: PAC-113 an anti-fungal, for the treatment of oral candidiasis infections. It is a 12 amino-acid antimicrobial peptide derived from a naturally occurring histatin protein found in saliva. In vitro studies demonstrate that it has potent anti-fungal activity against the Candida albicans, including drug-resistant HIV patient isolates. PAC-113 is targeting oral Candida infections in immunocompromised patients and patients with salivary dysfunction.

Indication: Investigated for use/treatment in candidiasis, fungal infections, and saliva and salivary gland dysfunction.
Pharmacodynamics: Not Available
Mechanism of action: PAC-113 is an amphipathic molecule that interacts with fungal cell membranes, altering permeability which causes cytoplasmic leakage and cell death. It also interacts with fungal mitochondria causing production of reactive oxygen species and fungal cell destruction. This activity is unique to histatin proteins. In addition, PAC-113 is active against growing cells, stationary phase cells and fungal biofilms. Rapid fungal lysis of fungal cells in a wide range of growth states may affect a more rapid and complete clinical cure.
