WHAT MOTIVATES US?

Phages have a natural ability to infect and lyse bacteria that is independent of antibiotics resistances. They also have highly desirable pharmaceutical properties: they are self-replicating and self-limiting, they have proven effectiveness against biofilms and have no known serious side effects. For many bacterial infections, natural, lytic phages are a promising alternative to antibiotics, but to this date no phage-based pharmaceuticals are on the market in either the US or the EU.

 

WHO AND WHAT IS PHAGOMED?

PhagoMed Biopharma GmbH is an Austrian biotech company focused on the development of human therapeutic applications of phages and phage-derived proteins. Currently, PhagoMed has three active development programs in the fields of periprosthetic joint infections, urinary tract infections and bacterial vaginosis. These development programs are based on the experiences of its clinical co-founders with last-resort treatments, as well as research collaborations with highly prestigious scientists and research institutions in Germany and Belgium. Since its incorporation in November 2017, the company has raised more than €5 million in private investments and public grants. PhagoMed has a team of eleven highly skilled scientist working on its programs, six of which at the Campus Vienna Biocenter in Vienna, Austria.

To SOLVE CHRONIC BACTERIAL INFECTIONS by developing specialized phage-based pharmaceuticals that can become FIRST LINE TREATMENT in our target indications.
