In recent months, the wellness community seems to have gone wild for all things gut health. And with good reason; our guts affect so much of our general well being, mental and physical. Our guts are ruled by ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria. The good stuff provides our bodies with vital nutrients and protects us from infections, while the bad bacteria can damage our digestive systems, skin and mood.
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.
