BiomX Inc. (NYSE American: PHGE) (“BiomX” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage microbiome company advancing novel natural and engineered phage therapies that target specific pathogenic bacteria, today announced that preclinical results with BX005 in atopic dermatitis were presented at the Revolutionizing Atopic Dermatitis (“RAD”) 2021 Virtual Conference and will also be presented at the upcoming International Conference on Phage Therapy and Bacteriophages. RAD occurred on June 13, 2021 and the International Conference on Phage Therapy and Bacteriophages will occur on June 17-18, 2021.

“The encouraging preclinical results of our topical phage cocktail candidate, BX005, support its potential to provide an improved safe and efficacious treatment option for atopic dermatitis patients, particularly children,” said Jonathan Solomon, Chief Executive Officer of BiomX. “In vitro results with BX005 demonstrated a broad host range and efficient eradication of Staphylococcus aureus strains with no mutants arising after 24 hours, versus untreated strains showing normal growth. We look forward to providing safety and efficacy Phase 2 results in the first half of 2022 with BX005, which is designed to target Staphylococcus aureus, a bacteria associated with the exacerbation of inflammation in atopic dermatitis.”
