PhagoMed’s PM-477 named as an MIT SOLVE finalist solution

MIT SOLVE, the worlds premier social impact competition, selected PhagoMed’s drug candidate PM-477 as a finalist in the 2020 global competition. PM-477 will compete together with 14 other solutions for up to $100,000 in prize money and the chance to be named an MIT SOLVER team in the MIT SOLVE Global Competition Finals on September 29th, 2020. PM-477 is PhagoMed’s lead drug candidate that targets the #1 vaginal infection, Bacterial Vaginosis (BV). Bacterial Vaginosis affects around 400 million women every year and has dramatic health consequences including pre-term birth, high risk of STD contraction and low quality of life. PM-477 is a precision drug that works by binding to and killing the bacteria that cause Bacterial Vaginosis. At the same time PM-477 cannot bind to the beneficial bacteria in the vaginal microbiome and is therefore a highly precise therapy.

MIT SOLVE selected PM-477 as a finalist due to the high medical need in Bacterial Vaginosis in low-income communities.
