Danish biotech firm Snipr Biome announced on Wednesday that the first dose had been administered in a phase I trial with a potentially preventive treatment against E.coli infections in the gut.

”It’s a huge day for us. This is seven years of work culminating in us reaching the clinic. The most distinguished role of biotech is to bring new innovation into clinical studies to investigate whether it works, and this is what we’re doing,” says Christian Grøndahl, CEO and co-founder of Snipr Biome, which is expecting the first data to come in toward the end of the year.
