About Evolution Biotechnologies
Evolution Biotechnologies Inc. (Registered USA No. 6050853) is working to bring phage therapy to market, using its unique, low-cost approach. The company’s initial target is antibiotic-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections in the canine ear. Once this has moved to commercial applications, company revenue will be used to support expansion into therapeutics intended for human use.
About phage therapy
Phage therapy is one of the most promising approaches to fighting antibiotic resistance. The basic approach has been around since 1919, but despite its long history and positive results from individual under ”Expanded Access” programs there has only been one successful modern clinical trial to demonstrate the efficacy of phage therapeutics. This was in a phase 1/2 clinical trial targeting drug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections in both dog and human ear infections. These trials were managed by Evolution’s CEO, Dr. David Harper in a previous role. This unique experience underpins the work of Evolution Biotechnologies in moving phage therapy towards market.
