AmpliPhi BioSciences Corporation announced it has entered into Collaboration and License Agreements with University of Leicester to develop a novel bacteriophage therapy targeting Clostridium difficile (C. difficile), a serious gastrointestinal infection for which new treatments are urgently required. Under the terms of the agreements, AmpliPhi will fund Dr. Martha Clokie's team at the University of Leicester to progress non-clinical studies of bacteriophage products as an alternative to treating antibiotic resistant infections caused by C. difficile bacteria.
