Viruses that hunt bacteria

Bacteriophages, phages for short, are viruses that exclusively infect and kill bacteria. Phage therapy, using phages to kill pathogenic bacteria, is an alternative to antibiotics that has been practiced on a small scale for almost 100 years. With the global surge in antibiotic resistance and modern advances in cheap genetic sequencing, automation and machine learning, phage therapy is experiencing a renaissance.

Unlike antibiotics, phage therapy only kills the pathogen of interest and has minimal side effects.

Expanded Access Program

As we get closer to clinical trials, we’re opening up an Expanded Access Waitlist for those in need. This is an opportunity for patients to access our investigational medical product outside of clinical trials. More Information Here
