    Curza, a Provo-based pharmaceutical research company, is on the cusp of a medical breakthrough that could treat victims of chronic Lyme disease.

    The company is entering phase two of clinical research on their newly designed antibiotic called CZ-99. They'll soon be testing the drug on infected mice at the University of California, Davis.

    An initial clinical trial at the University of New Haven in Connecticut, found CZ-99 to be 60 percent more effective in treating Lyme disease than the traditional antibiotics used to treat the illness.

    Curza CEO Ryan Davies says they have a patent on a technology used to penetrate bacteria's protective outer layer, or biofilm, making its new antibiotic more effective than outdated medications.
