  • Merck

    Ibrexafungerp (formerly SCY-078) was initially discovered at our research facilities and developed as part of a research collaboration with Merck. Subsequently, all worldwide intellectual property, development and commercialization rights were transferred to SCYNEXIS. We are currently developing this product as a novel oral and intravenous (IV) drug for the treatment of multiple serious and often life-threatening fungal infections, invasive candidiasis, invasive aspergillosis and invasive fungal infections.
