We are building an ecosystem of knowledge, together with world-class partners, bringing life-changing drugs to the market.
The Weizmann Institute of Science:
BiomX has exclusively licensed two underlying technologies that have been developed in the labs of Prof. Rotem Sorek and Dr. Eran Elinav at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel.
The licensed technologies include:
1. Access to phage discovery systems as the basis of the Microbiome Modulation platform, as well as in-vitro and in-vivo validation capabilities.
2. Access to the target bacteria discovery platform for identification of target bacteria and bacteria genes of complex microbiomes.
In collaboration with Takeda, BiomX is developing formulations for its phage therapy manufacturing intermediates and for the final form to be administered. The intermediate drug formulation enables long term storage and shipping under conditions that are cost efficient with virtually no loss in phage activity over extended periods of time. Co-operation on the formulations for administration have indicated that these industry standard alternatives for phage delivery support minimal losses in phage activity when phage are introduced into them.
