“Going with your gut”, a common phrase meaning to go with your feelings and intuition now has another meaning. Beyond a sixth sense, going with your gut can now reference that you are focusing on something much larger- around a 100 trillion times larger, in fact. You read right, 100 trillion times. What am I talking about? If you guessed gut bacteria (aka the microbiome, microbiota, or microflora) you are correct!
4D pharma plc (LON:DDDD) is a pharmaceutical company focussed on developing therapeutics from the human gut microbiome.4D is a world leader in the development of live biotherapeutics, a novel and emerging class of drugs, defined by the FDA as biological products that contain a live organism (such as a bacteria) that is applicable to the prevention, treatment or cure of a disease.
