The results from the NEFERTITI-study have received much attention since they were first published in a press release from October 11th. During the last week of November, there were no less than three publications that mentioned Gedea and were spread through e.g., Twitter and LinkedIn.

First out was Biose with an article about the drug landscape targeting health issues within the women’s health area, covering Bacterial Vaginosis, Vulvovaginal Candidiasis, Urinary tract infections and HIV, and also included a summary of facts on the vaginal microbiome. Among the companies mentioned besides Gedea was Ferring, Rebiotix and MyBiotics’ collaboration project on live microbiota formulations to address BV.

Citing the growing public health threat of antibiotic resistance as a driver, Gedea’s BV candidate, pHyph, hopes to address an unmet medical need. Founded in 2015, Gedea have conducted multiple studies to validate their product and will be embarking on a study into VVC soon.”

Second out was CORDIS, a publications platform for EU-funded research within the HORIZON 2020 program.
