Live biotherapeutic products (LBPs) are regulated as drugs by the FDA and range from single microbes with defined pharmacological properties to entire ecosystems that can prevent and treat infection. Our ‘living medicines’ have extensive safety data in a human population, target conditions that impact large global communities, and can be clinically validated at a fraction of the cost of a small molecule.
