- Significant management experience in phage development. Team expanded in 2019 with accomplished research stars in new indications.
- Strong traction in 2019: phage engineering platform validated, new patents, further compassionate treatment cases in Germany and follow-on investments ( >$7 million in total so far).
- First phage candidate projected to enter the clinic in 2022.
PhagoMed develops phage-based drug candidates to provide a solution in these settings where antibiotics fail. Phages are natural viruses that infect and kill bacteria. Phages and their proteins (such as lysins) are also highly precise and only target individual bacterial species. PhagoMed has developed a proprietary engineering platform to develop drug-grade phages and lysins. During 2019 the team validated the platform and generated two proprietary drug prototypes in two indications of high medical need: a phage cocktail to treat implant-associated infections and a recombinant endolysin to treat Bacterial Vaginosis and re-stabilize the vaginal microbiome.
