Probiotic-like XycrobesTM colonize the skin and release skin-healthy
bio-therapeutics to the target tissues

Our XycrobeTM (pronounced ˈzīˌkrōb) technology platform addresses the need of patients with inflammatory skin disease through the development of a library of “good” bacteria strains designed to be used for therapeutic purposes. With our technology, we aim to change the way inflammatory skin disease is treated by 1) addressing bacterial dysbiosis of the skin, 2) addressing immunological or genetic deficiencies found in many affected patients and 3) reducing the incidence of antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections that occur due to overuse of antibiotics and other antimicrobial products.
