Harnessing the microbiome to treat skin disease.

Developing novel therapeutics to treat adverse skin conditions


A clinical stage medical dermatology company that leverages its extensive knowledge of proteomics, genetic engineering and the skin microbiome to create and develop novel products for the treatment of skin conditions and diseases.

Broad product opportunities for developing novel antimicrobials and other therapeutics

The Company’s technology platform offers multiple product opportunities in three areas: (1) direct application of commensal bacteria; (2) pharmaceuticals based on the delivery of biotherapeutic proteins to the skin via proprietary bacteria strains; and (3) discovery and development of novel bioactive compounds — e.g., antimicrobials and other therapeutics based on the metabolic products of commensal skin bacteria. Azitra’s lead programs are focused on cancer therapy-associated rashes (CTAR), orphan skin diseases including Netherton syndrome, eczema (atopic dermatitis) and ichthyosis vulgaris.
