About 4D pharma

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 bacterium, that is applicable to the prevention, treatment or cure of a disease. 4D pharma has developed a proprietary platform, MicroRx(R), that rationally identifies Live Biotherapeutics based on a deep understanding of function and mechanism.

4D pharma's Live Biotherapeutic products (LBPs) are orally delivered single strains of bacteria that are naturally found in the healthy human gut. In addition to those programs listed above, there are two further clinical stage programs, namely Blautix(R) which is in development for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and which has successfully completed a Phase II trial, and MRx0518 in patients with solid tumours, which successfully completed Part A as announced on 9 November 2020. Additional nonclinical-stage programs of LBPs include therapies for central nervous system (CNS) diseases, immune-inflammatory conditions and cancer. 4D pharma has a research collaboration with MSD (a tradename of Merck & Co., Inc., Kenilworth, NJ, USA), to discover and develop Live Biotherapeutics for vaccines.
