Using the natural enemies of bacteria to treat infections.

Challenge

In 2050, more people will die from superbugs, or bacteria that have become resistant to antibiotic drugs, than from cancer. We use antibiotics often and too much. Fortunately, there is a method over 100 years old that can help us in this battle. Luckily the former Soviet Union already used this extraordinary treatment from the beginning. 

Outcome

In the western medical world, the bacteriophages are not yet accepted by biomedical companies. We believe that phage therapy should be available to everyone and that is why we created the Phagecocktail. This is an open-source platform where people can find and add Phages using geolocations.
