Mikrobiomik caters for the entire value chain in R&D&i, as it involves the initial research into the human microbiome to develop innovative medications that clearly improve the health of patients with a range of diseases, from digestive tract complaints such as ulcerative colitis though to autistic spectrum disorders. This Basque bio-pharmaceutical company has taken faecal microbiota transportation (FMT) one step further by providing for its administration through the production of lyophilised oral capsules of faecal microbiota.
Following a year that has been so severely impacted by the health agenda, there is a greater need than ever for cutting-edge bio-pharmaceutical companies such as Mikrobiomik, which design and manufacture pharmaceutical products to improve people’s health.
