More info on Vesale Bioscience

Vesale Bioscience, a Vesale Pharma spin-out, is dedicated to organizing the development, production and distribution of bacteriophages. Modern phage therapy is the most promising treatment against antiobiotic multiresistant bacterial (AMR) infections, one of the biggest global health challenges, referred to as “the next pandemic” by the WHO. AMR is expected to become the single largest death cause within the next quarter century, surpassing cancer.

Vesale Bioscience has developed "Inteliphage", a revolutionary automatic phagogram, IVD for a fast screening of phages. This equipment provides a diagnosis in three hours instead of the usual three days, allowing Vésale to recommend and deliver a personalized and highly effective treatment in record time, which is life-saving in many critical circumstances. In 2021, Vesale Bioscience received the BioFIT award for the most innovative life sciences start-up in Europe.

Vesale Bioscience has a close Research and Development collaboration in phage therapy with The Belgian Defense (Queen Astrid Military Hospital) and other major European Institutions. Find more information on
