UTI treatment (Stealth Mode)

This startup is developing a natural microbiome-based treatment for Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) that reduces harmful bacteria thereby avoiding the use of antibiotics.

Natural microbiome-based urinary tract infection treatment

PROBLEM

Recurrent UTIs blight the lives of millions of women. They are one of the world’s most common infections and one of the main reasons for antibiotic prescriptions globally. Antimicrobial resistance is a major problem rendering many existing treatments ineffective. The market for female healthcare, especially post-menopausal women, is underserved and lacks innovation.

SOLUTION

This startup developed a cream to stop the transfer of bad bacteria to the vagina and urinary tract, keeping the good bacteria to act as a protective barrier. It contains an active ingredient that is a live predatory organism eating gram-negative UTI bacteria while boosting the body’s natural defenses. The solution is patented and will be sold OTC as a cosmeceutical.
