"When I met with the Maxwell team and looked into Maxwell's CLAROMER® platform," says Maxie, "I was amazed both at the world class talent already assembled as well as the potential - for the first time ever - for a single drug to work with our bodies to directly combat viruses, bacteria and fungi, many of which have no treatment today. Those amazing attributes, plus Scotch's broader compassionate vision to bring health to the world, made it an easy choice to join."
