The Biotech is ‘Harnessing the microbiome’s therapeutic potential’

A LifeSci Capital report presented a handful of key points about 4D Pharma.

Analyst Patrick Dolezal reported that LifeSci Capital initiated coverage on 4D Pharma Plc (LON:DDDD), a United Kingdom-based developer of biotherapeutics.

Dolezal highlighted five of the company’s advantages.



Founded in February 2014, 4D Pharma  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.  4D has developed a proprietary platform that rationally identifies novel bacteria that have a precise and evolved therapeutic effect.  All of 4D’s live biotherapeutic products are orally delivered single strains of bacteria that are naturally found in the healthy human gut.  4D has completed a phase I study in Irritable Bowel Syndrome and has completed dosing in a phase I study in Paediatric Crohn’s Disease.  It currently has a pipeline of 13 pre-clinical programmes, covering disease areas such as cancer, poorly controlled asthma, autoimmune and CNS disease, and plans to commence four additional clinical studies in 2018.
