Fagoterapia LAB S.r.l.


Fagoterapia LAB (FL) is the first biotech company in Italy with the mission of saving patients’ lives from infections caused by lethal antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Antibiotic resistance is a silent pandemic responsible for approx. 700.000 diagnosed antimicrobial-resistant infections per year, for which there are hardly any effective solutions. Phage therapy is one of the most promising alternatives to antibiotics and involves the use of viruses, safe to humans, which exclusively attack the bacteria causing the infection and destroy them, favouring the patient's rapid recovery.
FL is able to develop a personalised antibacterial drug, consisting of the most active phages selected from its platform, based on the best phage-bacteria match predicted by its proprietary algorithm, and that will revolutionalise the field of infectious disease.
