The Italian word “spero” means “hope.” Spero’s mission as the leader in the field of antibiotic drug development is to give hope to patients afflicted with drug resistant infections by developing transformative anti-infective medicines. The need for more agents is greater than ever before to treat patients for whom there are no generic options. Consider too that the rate of mortality for resistant organisms is the equivalent of one Boeing 747 “Jumbo Jet” crashing each week.
