BACTERIOPHAGE

Phage, Microbiome
& Beyond

BACTERIOPHAGE

A bactericidal virus that uses bacteria as a host is called as "bacteriophage". The average size of bacteriophages is about 200 nanometers, about 1/8 of bacteria, and selectively sterilizes bacteria. This is because infection is possible only when the tail fiber of the bacteriophage is selectively adsorbed to a specific membrane protein also known as receptor protein of a bacteria. Bacteriophages can be found anywhere in the natural environment, such as soil, water, and seawater, and account for more than 90% of viruses in the human body and are harmless to the human body. In addition, it has a function of minimizing the occurrence of resistance by dramatically reducing the patient's antibiotic dose by removing the antibiotic-resistant strain and co-administration.

The Sea of Phages
THE PHAGEOME

Healthy people maintain a stable and balanced intestinal microbial ecosystem (microbiome). In other words, changes in the intestinal core bacteriophage and microbiome are delicately intertwined with human health (metabolites and immune system) Bacteriophages are used to balance and change intestinal microbiome through targeted bacterial removal, symbiosis with bacteria, and modulation.

CUSTOS PLATFORM

Our pipeline will be expanded rapidly through the analysis of 1,000 new pathogens per month and discovering effective phages to fight against them. (NGS/PCS analysis to phage vs. microbiome, taxonomy, healthy patient phage comparison) to discover candidate drug substances and build optimized CMC to produce through our GMP.

Development of a Cure for Untreatable Diseases

MicrobiotiX aims to develop various treatments for untreatable diseases through bacteriophages that can target gram-negative, multidrug-resistant bacteria and through microbiome modulation to treat: pneumonia, sepsis, IBD, autism, obesity, diabetes, colon cancer, etc.
